This is a stunning raised whitework embroidered handkerchief. It was made in the 19th Century in Eastern Switzerland. There is a similar example in The Ikle Collection, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Antique white colour. Slightly less than good condition -there are several very fine darns and some tiny pinholes. In addition there is small area of pale age browning (please see photos)
