Antique Linen Ruffled Hanky

Turkey Red Embroidery

Item Number H34907

Sweet and whitest white antique linen hanky is embroidered with turkey red and finished with deep, fluffy ruffles.  Oh, I love ruffles...but!..I digress.  Ok.  I have no idea what the embroidery is or if, perhaps the work is unfinished.  I rather felt like I was looking at an Escher drawing with a hidden angle that was meant to tease my brain.  Are thesee Nordic inlets?...or a secret treasure map??  Whew...but it is charming and fun for the period and beautifully made.  The ruffles are sewn by hand and are edged with a tiny row of Valenciennes lace.  Excellent condition, freshly laundered and pressed. c.1880's - 1900  15", including ruffles
