Beautiful Handmade Lace


hankiesouvenir hankie
9 1/4" square, this hanky combines a vivid round center with handmade lace.

White outline stitch embroidery on red background identifies "MALTA" as the home of the souvenir.

1 3/4" to 3 1/2" (diagonally in the corners) lace borders the fabric. Maltese lace is a special form of Cluny bobbin lace featuring wheatear Maltese crosses; and these are incorporated into the four corners of the central square around the fabric.

This hanky is in very good condition; it appears never to have been used.

*vintage: gently used; posessing age, charm, character, maturity
