C.1820, ETHEREAL LAWN HANDKERCHIEF W/WHITEWORK EMBROIDERY,BOBBIN LACE. A large early gossamer lawn handkerchief with beautiful whitework embroidery and very fine hand made bobbin lace edging and extremely fine Drawnwork around the handkerchief. Measuring approx. 21". There is a light scripted name above one of the corners , a common touch on earlier handkerchiefs. In strong very good condition, a few tiny openings.I consider minor on such a early handkerchief. They are not usually in this good strong condition. A wonderful item for the early handkerchief collector.
