CIRCA 19THC. SUPERB HANDKERCHIEF W/WHITEWORK EMBROIDER,BOBBIN LACE
CIRCA 19THC. SUPERB LAWN HANDKERCHIEF W/WHITEWORK EMBROIDERY,BOBBIN LACE. The whitework embroidery on this very beautiful handkerchief is quite superb! There are lovely florals and leaf garlands throughout the handkerchief. The lawn is luminous and it almost defies belief that such amazing embroidery could have been done on such a gossamer lawn fabric .The creator was a master at not only in design but also was a excellent and superb embroiderer. Measuring approx. 19". the handkerchief has a bobbin lace edge. The handkerchief has been laundered and came from a very good lace collection, there is one tiny flaw in lawn at center and one stitch needed on edge, both minor as this handkerchief seems unused or rarely used. the level of workmanship is quite amazing.
