Magnificent Appenzel Hankerchief of "Vincent De Paul"
Measuring apprx. 18". Although the hankerchief is in strong condition, unfortunately the Museum that had it certainly did it no favours by allowing it to remain brown with age stains. We have washed this with sodium perborate and although it has come up beautiful, nothing could prevent the way it had been stored and so there is openings in the areas where the hankerchief was folded. My opinion is that these hankerchiefs are works of art, and so although there is damage, it does not detract from the overall rarity and astonishing workmanship.The hankerchief is a work of art!
