Stunning Vintage Handkerchief made by the amazing embroidering women of the island of Madeira. Beautifully embroidered with luscious purple violets, the flowers and are leaf are appliqué shadow work they are famous for. A little lavender colored scallop finishes this delightful confection to perfection.
The hems are hand-rolled, there are two stripes on the linen which may or may not soak out, the handkerchief has the unused finish which I know many collectors prize. A delightful addition to your collection of antique and vintage handkerchiefs!
