Silk hankie with Reticella lace border, c.1900

Fine antique hankies with beautiful handwork make thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts. Here is "something old" on a bride's special day.

The handkerchief has a hand-embroidered chain stitch border on the silk center and an outer border of handmade Reticella lace. The silk center is cream colored; the lace border is white.

The condition is almost excellent. The hankie has a very pale spot that is almost invisible.

It measures 14" square.
