Price: $25.00
Item Number: HAN43C
Reproduction from the Collection of Mary Doering

The original made of silk and reproduced here with it's simple blocked border is dated in Mary's collection to 1810.  Black & Red is a common colorway described often in advertisements and found in textile prints as well.  An 18th century handkerchief in the collection of the Nordiska Museet is similar to the esthetic of this one and was surmised to possibly be a snuff handkerchief.  An early 19th century handkerchief belonging to a sailor in the collection of the  National Maritime Museum.is similar as well with a red ground and white & black border. David Wilkie's "Distraining for Rent" 1815 shows a variety of handkerchiefs one being a red ground with border worn by a young mother. For thos of you who want the ease of cotton, this handkerchie will suit your 18th or 19th century persona.  About Our Handkerchief
