Set of six embroidered vintage handkerchiefs in the original gift box. The box shows an 18th century port scene with a lady bidding her officer husband farewell as the sailors load the ship.
The handkerchiefs are white cotton lawn and there are two worked in blue, two in pale pink and two in deep pink and purple. Each also features eyelet work, one lace corner and hem stitched borders. Made in Ireland. 1950s-1960s.
I have washed the hankies and carefully place them back in the box as found.
Each hanky measures 24 x 24 cm (9.5")
Box measures 24.5 x 24.5 x 1 cm (9.5 x 9.5 x 3/8")
Very good. There are a few very faint spots on a couple of the hankies. The box lid is split in a couple of places and has been nibbled by silverfish at the edges.
