Vintage Handkerchief Pretty Posy Pattern c1940s

This vintage handkerchief has a pretty floral pattern, arranged in a sequence of squares around a white centre.

The outer square features flower posies in shades of orange, yellow, white and brown. The inner square is a garland of flowers in the same colours. The design is completed with an inner green border with scalloped edges and an outer border of dark brown.

The fabric has a subtle sheen and feels like silk but is more likely to be rayon. Estimated date 1930s - 1940s.

Approx. Measurements:
- Just over 12.25 inches / 31cms square

Condition: Very Good
- The edges are neatly machine stitched, possibly a couple of wonky stitches on one edge
- No holes, thread pulls or marks
- Some light creases from storage

During the 1940s, Rayon was a popular alternative to silk, which was in short supply as a fashion fabric. Rayon could be made to look and feel like more expensive fabrics and lent itself to vibrant printed designs.
