Edwardian Embroidered Handkerchief


Shown is a beautifully hand-embroidered Edwardian white handkerchief bordered with delicate white lace. Each of the four corners is ornamented with a different embroidered design. Perhaps it was originally a birthday or anniversary gift since the dates represent a twenty-five year span.

  • The date "March 1880" with flowers.

  • The date "March 1905" with flowers.

  • The initials 'AR' with flowers.

  • Two birds on two branches with leaves.
