Antique Handmade Bobbin Lace Handkerchief,

Ca. 1900 or Earlier

 

In a chest of family clothing and accessories, I discovered this handkerchief along with notes from my aunt telling me that the contents of the chest dated from approximately 1900.  Someone temporarily mounted the handkerchief on royal blue cardboard with very few and very tiny stitches in the lace.  You could easily and safely remove those stitches from the protective cardboard without any damage to the handkerchief or lace.  Was the cardboard part of the lace making process?

       Each side of the square of the lace measures about 12 inches point to point.  The condition of the handkerchief is excellent, probably never used.  I cannot detect any staining from the cardboard to the handkerchief, nor any odor from storage.

       My Pennsylvania Dutch family lived in Berks and Lehigh Counties of Pennsylvania, two of the four Pennsylvania Dutch counties.

I plan to roll the handkerchief on its cardboard and place it inside a medium Priority Mail box to the buyer.  The U.S. domestic shipping rate includes insurance.  While I welcome international bidders, I ask that they carefully look at the Priority Mail international postage rates and remember that customs duty may be applied at the entry border, although this is an antique and usually customs exempt.
