A vintage handkerchief with a triple monogram MCK. This linen has two faint tear spots, as noted in photograph.
You don't need to share the same initials to appreciate and enjoy the quality of these antique linens. If these are not your initials, and you want it anyways, go for it! Invent a long-lost Great Uncle with these initials... perhaps Morton Courtier Knuckle... and smile and say you inherited them from Great old Uncle Morty.
Gorgeous hankies such as this looks perfect under a crystal stemmed glass, a candle, or atop a little silver plate.
Other ideas we like are:
Fold and use as cocktail napkins (mix and match!), protect your jewelry when traveling or in storage, wrap a special present in it, keep in purse for weddings and sad movies, use as centerpieces for occasional pillows, tie one around the handle of a silver water pitcher to prevent drips (as shown in gallery), place one in between a saucer and a candle or vase, give as wedding or hostess presents.
And of course, they are the PERFECT item to use to make a special ring-bearer pillow. We should know, as we have done just that.
The bride's favorite country was France, and her father fought in WWII. We found an antique souvenir hankie from France, honoring WWII. We used that as one layer, and then purchased a monogramed hankie with her new initial for the top layer. We embroidered their wedding date and added a ribbon on the top, of which to tie the ring to. And voilá. The most unique, special, and personal ring-bearer pillow a bride could ask for.
See images in our picture gallery, and contact us for further monogramming options.
In mint vintage condition.

WE HAND-WASH ALL OF OUR ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE LINENS. WE THEN PRESS EACH ONE WITH AN IRON, AND SEAL THEM TO PREVENT FURTHER AGING. IF THERE ARE ANY AGE SPOTS WE DISCLOSE IT IN THE DESCRIPTION. IF WE MISS ONE, PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGY AND CONTACT US IF NOT SATISFIED.
Because this is antique or vintage fabric, it is best to hand-wash it. Using a detergent that is specialized for vintage linens is important, as they are less harsh and have special ingredients that take out yellowing, odors and age spots (wow, I wonder if there is an anti-aging cream like this?) The two we like best are Le Blanc Linen Wash and Restoration - which is CURIO's preferred product. Be sure to follow the directions on the containers and the results will be amazing.
PLEASE E-MAIL OR CALL IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT SIZE OR CONDITION.
