Monogrammed M Handkerchiefs

The last set of handkerchiefs are monogrammed M for my grandmother, Mae. Since my middle name is Mae & my first name begins with an M, I had the 2nd one bunched up in the center as shown & inserted into my bouquet when I got married. It’s at my wrist in the picture. Something old & a way to have her with us on our wedding day!

I love antique handkerchiefs. I framed some that were so beautiful and have a nice little collection of others. You don’t see that workmanship anymore. Do you remember the flirty way a lady dropped her handkerchief near a handsome man hoping he would pick it up and hand it to her.

Hi Sharon, I don’t recall using them myself except for my wedding. I’ve seen them used in the movies. They are too pretty to use so I can see framing them. The most dainty in my opinion of the ones I posted is the small center with a large delicate tatted border. And, I hung the 2 girls on a hanger in the bathroom.
