Exquisite - antique Point de Gaze handmade lace wedding handkerchief in box. Do keep checking back, as new items will be added each Sunday. I have some amazing convent finds, lace, costume, key tassels, passementerie, ribbons and boudoir fripperies for you to browse through.. One of the finest collections of antique handkerchiefs I have come across for a long time..... Found on my most recent trip to France. They all came from a chateau in Brittany - one has the crown of a Marquis, and several have notes of provenance attached. This is a Point de Gaze lace wedding handkerchief in its original Comptoir des Indes retail box. The handmade Point de Gaze lace is exquisite. It measures 35cms x 35cms. I have not laundered this, and there a few smalll storage marks, but no stains. I can spot a couple of small breaks in the net ground, and one small hole (last two images). The fine linen lawn centrepiece has no holes. This is the most stunning of all the handkerchiefs, with beautiful, intricately worked motifs. Unusual to find in the original box. It dates to around 1900.
