For a bride with an interest in history of the British monarchy as well as an eye for pretty lace, this very collectable white handkerchief could be the perfect 'something old' item for the wedding day!
- Beautiful net lace edging is decorated all the way around with crowns, flowers and leaves and the dates 1910 and 1935. This lace will have been made to commemorate 25 years reign of King George V whose reign came to an end when he died on January 20 1936. Stylised bars of flower shapes placed at angles with a centre ball shaped feature in between them, in the centre of each side probably represents the Royal orb and sceptres, important objects in the Crown Jewels collection and used by the sovereign on ceremonial occasions including the Coronation.
- The lace edging is in immaculate condition and overall the handkerchief looks never to have been used.
- The handkerchief is not perfectly square but approximately measures 12" square in total. The lace edging is 1" deep and the very fine cotton square measures just under 10" square
