Elaborately Embroidered Linen Hankie


The detail on this intricately hand embroidered handkerchief absolutely boggles the mind, doesn’t it?  It is made from a gauzy linen fabric and measures 11.5” square.  These always have a silvery cast which I think adds a bit of charm.  All the elements of Appenzell are represented here but it is more likely it comes from an Asian embroidery house whose fine work mimicked the Swiss.  Pristine condition.

Hand washed, air dried and pressed.  Excellent condition.   c. 1950 - 60’s
