Beautiful Collections - Vintage Lace and Ribbonwork

Vintage Hankie Holders

I love old hankie holders.  
I've been collecting them for years.
They are like potato chips......  one just isn't enough!
I especially love those made of silk with lots of lace and ribbonwork.
Today I am sharing some of my favorites.
They are so beautiful.  Pretty little works of art.
They add a feminine touch to any boudoir.

Have a lovely week!

Elizabeth, These are beautiful. I love vintage laces. I have one vintage hankie cover but it is not nearly as pretty as these. Thanks for sharing. Carol

Elizabeth, what a gorgeous collection, and great photos. I actually never knew hankie holders existed, but these are stunning.

I have never seen a vintage Handy Holder fact I never even knew there was such a thing? Maybe I've seen them and didn't even know what they were? What a pretty collection you have. So nice of you to stop by and let me know you love dishes as much as I do. In fact, they just follow me home!

Hello Elizabeth,

Your vintage collection of hanky holders is stunning. So very precious and feminine. The pastel colors and fabric is reminds me of something that Marie Antoinette would own.

What rare and exquisite items to own.
Thank you for sharing.

Wishing you a lovely week.

How beautiful! I love old linens and laces...they are so unappreciated by many people... and yet, they are so lovely. :)

So lovely and elegant. I have several vintage ones that belonged to my family. Some very special that were my mothers.

Beautiful. Happy Pink Saturday.
(I had never heard of Hanky holders before. What do they look like inside?)

Hello, Elizabeth...I found one of your photos on Pinterest, and decided to come and check out your blog.

These are so lovely! I never realized there were so many different kinds of hanky holders. A while back, I bought a pretty crocheted clutch at a thrift store to hold my precious mother's hankies. Thank you for sharing yours.

Blessings for a delightful weekend,
Marianne xo
