Exceptional 19th century Napoleon III era {1850’s - 1880's} Handkerchief made of the finest gossamer fine lawn and hand made Needle Lace. Executed by a master lace maker, the gorgeous floral design has many flowers, leaves, sprays and scrolls. This decorative treasure is embellished with lush floral bouquets on the fine esprit reseau ground.

The center is the finest luxury quality lawn in soft ivory white. Oh so elegant, this was of the highest quality even when quality was extremely high. Luxurious, perhaps made especially for a bride for her trousseau and to use on her wedding day. There are some breaks in the reseau as shown, and tiny tiny pinprick in the lawn, that this collectible treasure has survived for over 150 years in this condition is a testament to how beloved it was by the collector who owned it. A stunning addition to your antique linens collection, or an amazing gift to present to a bride on her special day.
