CIRCA 19THC. ELABORATE LAWN HANDKERCHIEF W/WHITEWORK, VALENCIENNE LACE. Superb design and workmanship on this lovely wedding handkerchief. Large rose, floral swags of florals surround the edge of the fine lawn. The edging has ruffled Valencienne lace . Measuring approx.17" with additional 2 1/2" of Valencienne lace. A few spots at centre, one tiny pinprick opening and one separation near a flower ,otherwise in very good strong condition. Sometimes on these early lawn handkerchiefs they were weakened by the amount of Whitework embroidery but this one is extremely strong and basically seems unused, so it might have been the way it was stored. The whitework embroidery is quite excellent nd the handkerchief is in good strong condition.
