Traditional for Spring since I-don’t-know-when. Red, white and blue nautical and sailor motifs have been standard fare forever when the new February fashions come around. This one is a perfect handkerchief to carry in my “newest” purses! No well-groomed mid-century gal would have been caught without one.
Fine cotton with a neatly hand-finished edge. I’ve never seen a design like this before, though hankies for daily use were just as common as packs of paper tissues are now. Most seemed to have floral motifs, however, so I cherish something unique like this one; also souvenir hankies and other unusual pictorial designs.
True vintage accessories are always fun and daily-use items like this example are rarely found in such pristine condition. My discovery experiences have been full of amazing surprises lately and they’ll keep on comin’. Stay tuned . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
