1920s Art Deco Handkerchiefs with Box, Butterfly Print

1920s Art Deco Handkerchiefs with Box, Butterfly Print

Butterfly time! We're dating this handkerchief gift box set to vintage 20's or vintage 30's. It's new old stock in the original box, withall the original fancy folds and a decorative ribbon to top it off. Made in Switzerland, it's a set pf two soft cotton or linen hankies (very fine) with scalloped, embroidered eges, and lovely delicate multicolor embroidered bouquets on each one.

However, it's the box lid that's the real star, with a great splashy butterfly floral pattern in green, lavender, silver and gold on a coral orange ground. We have several of these stunning art deco sets for sale, so please feel free to check our shop for more!
