Antique Hankies

My husband’s grandmother was a very crafty lady. She recreated custom clothing for my mother in law, crocheted, knitted, and sewed like most women born before 1900. My MIL inherited many of her creations and trinkets that were then passed down to me. I also crochet, knit and sew even though I was born many more years into the 1900’s.

A few weeks ago, I ran across this box:

Filled with handkerchiefs that belonged to both my mother in law and her mother. The stitching and printed designs are lovely so I thought I’d share a few.

I’d love to find out more about where the box was made since the etching/staining is so well done but I can’t find much online about them.
