Vintage Large White Handkerchief Embroidered and Appliqued Flower Unused Bridal Wedding
This vintage white handkerchief with a large white embroidered, appliqued flower would make a perfect “something old” for the bride. It is unused with original labels still affixed. It is a high quality hanky with a handrolled hem.
There is one large white flower appliqued and outlined with white embroidery and accented with 2 rows of drawnwork in one corner.
Measurements: This beautiful large hankie measures 11 ¾” x 12”.
Label: One of the labels reads All Cotton RN 14055 Made in H.K. and the other is a price tag from Wolf & Dessauer, which was a department store in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Condition: In excellent, near mint condition – unused. The hankie has not been cleaned or ironed. This means you will receive it with the original fold creases as shown in the photos.
Lovely bridal or wedding party gift!
**Unless absolutely necessary, I do not launder or iron unused handkerchiefs. Washing will remove any original tags or stickers and essentially makes it no longer “unused”. Unused vintage hankies may have been exposed household dust, so I try not to iron as doing so may set some age marks. Also, where the adhesive store tags have been attached, they sometimes do leave a yellow mark that can usually be soaked away. Unless you are keeping it unused for a collection, we suggest a gentle soaking with mild detergent and ironing on a low setting.
