Switzerland     $250.00

Fine white linen, white cotton floss.

Comments: Swiss white on white hand embroidery was among the finest ever produced. This hanky has a very feminine sensibility with its curvilinear scrolls and delicate floral designs. The embroiderer covered the linen cloth with padded satin stitch, miniscule seed stitch, drawn-work scrolls and airy needle lace fillings.
