DAR Museum Reproduction by Burnley & Trowbridge 

This beautiful handkerchief has been meticulously reproduced replicating not only the sheer handloomed cotton, but the original tambour embroidery.

Embroidered handkerchiefs such as this tend to survive in collections as whitework or as the more elaborate silk and metal embroidery.  The simplicity of this piece lends itself to the possibility of domestic production.  It is worked on a woven border found commonly in handkerchiefs of linen, linen/cotton as well cotton spanning from the 18th thru the late 19th century and beyond. This accessory is perfect for your 18th or 19thc persona.Our kerchiefs are made of hand loomed cotton mul,hand embroidered and hand finished  About our Handkerchiefs
