Ayshire Work Hankerchief

Ayshire Work Hankerchief
C.1850's. A very fine white cotton hanky with oodles of lovely Ayrshire work.
The embroidery consists of of a stunning boquet of flowers in each corner of the hankerchief, with net lace decorating the edges of the hanky. The quality of work and intricacy just amazes me. The hanky is in near mint condition, with only the odd little pinprick holes in the fine cotton.
This deserves to be framed and admired as it truly is a piece of art! Measures approx. 18 1/2" x 18 1/2".
