Antique Black Silk
Embroidered Mourning Hanky
Item Number H36507
Rare and nearly perfect antique black silk mourning hanky represents so much in the history of such things...every woman probably had just one of these...and of course, they were carried at times of grief. A true symbol of gentility and culture, this piece of fine black silk is minimally adorned with hand embroidered trumpet lilies with net lace inserts. Flawless except very minor fading on the edges, shown below. Dainty, lovely, extremely collectable for it's rarity. Offered as found, in excellent condition. c.1880's - 1900 10.25" X 11"
