Antique Hand Embroidered 'Bains Boulogne' Whitework Handkerchief


Code: 10533


W: 40cm (15.7")L: 40cm (15.7")

This is a 19th Century fine linen handkerchief with a hand embroidered illustration of 'Bains Boulogne' in one corner. Beautifully detailed surrounded by a wreath of flowers.

Sometimes called 'Grand Tour' handkerchiefs these were made in Appenzell, Switzerland and show astonishing levels of embroidery skill.  This one seems to be a direct copy of the 19th Century French engraving. 

Good condition.
