We're dating this set of monogrammed hankies to vintage 20's or 30's. The hankies are lovely Irish linen specimens, monogrammed with "T", and each one bordered in a different colour: blue, purple, pink or golden yellow. They're still folded up nicely in the original box, with a satin ribbon bow and a Made in Ireland sticker with the product number written on in fountain pen.
It's the box that's the real star, though, with a wild and fiery flame-like print on the lid in orange, red, blue, green, black, white and metallic gold. It's very rare to come across packaging like this, and it's a lucky find. Please check out our shop as we have a few more of these just waiting for the right collector!
