Hand-embroidered monogrammed hankie, early 20th century
Fine antique hankies with abundant handwork make special, one-of-a-kind gifts. This could be the "something old" on a bride's special day.
The hankie is fashioned from sheer white organdy. The floral border combines textured flowers of padded satin stitch with open work mesh. The "P" monogram is embroidered with flowers. The color is ivory.
The condition is almost excellent. The two small mends in the center ground are reflected in the price.
The hankie is 15 1/2" square.
