Visual display of the Handkerchief envelopes

Handkerchief envelopes

  • Handkerchief envelopes for storing handkerchiefs. On the left is a 7" square white satin envelope with white lace and purple thread-type ribbon sewn along the border and diagonally across the center. There are satin flowers and a purple bow in the middle. On the right is a light green envelope 8-1/4" across and 9" long. The envelope features a drawing of a woman looking over her shoulder, dressed in a gown. Her skirt is made of layers of black lace. The same black lace is used along the edges of the envelope.
  • From the private collection of Dovie Horvitz (2010.8.10 a,h).
