LANVIN Paris Vintage Handkerchief - 1950s - Sold
A really pretty 100% pure cotton handkerchief with hand rolled and sewn edges.
This handkerchief was made for Lanvin in the 1950s. There is a trellis pattern around the outer edges in red and green and the central square has a mass of red, pink and green flowers and leaves. The background is light cream/ivory.
The Lanvin 'Paris' signature is in the corner of the handkerchief. A perfect example by a classic designer.
Never used, this cute hankie is in perfect condition. It would make a nice piece to add to your vintage handbag - perhaps tied to the handle, or you could use it as a bracelet tied around the wrist and fastened with a pretty knot. Perfect for a vintage bride, bridesmaid or mother of the bride - to wipe away a happy tear. Or you could use it as a handkerchief! It's a bit too nice for that though. Just a nice thing to have.
