Vintage 1909 Silk Handkerchief Box Embroidered with Swans with Vintage Hankies
A charming, very old English, yellow silk covered handkerchief box with which is embroidered on the lid. The embroidery is a countryside river scene, with two white swans. The inside of the box is also lined in yellow silk.
The box is very well made, however due to it's age there are some slight things to note. There are are four tiny dots on the top left hand side of the lid, the corners of the lid are very slightly worn on the bottom left hand side of the lid and the top right hand side, the paper on base is slightly worn in some patches around the outer edge, the front button to hold the lid shut is no longer present, but the silk loop is still good, so a little button could easily be added, and the inside join between the lid and the box has a little tear to the silk on the left hand side.
That sounds like a long list of things, but they are all really small, but of course you need to know about them. I have shown them in the photos.
Inside the box there are are 12 vintage hankies which have all been laundered. Some of the hankies are very old, good quality linen, which would probably be original to the box. There are also a couple of embroidered hankies and a blue and white checked one with a lace edge.
I believe this box and the original hankies to have been a wedding gift, as there is a gift card inside to a 'Clara Jane Lister with Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Winn's compliments.' It is dated 1909. There is an address included too. 'Scale House, Near Skipton in Craven'. (Skipton in Craven is in Yorkshire, England.)
This whole listing is like a little treasure chest of history.
Size: 7 inches x 7 inches x 2 inches deep.

Black Tasselled and Bead Embroidered Evening Scarf / Wrap - Vintage 1950s
A sleek and graceful black evening scarf in a fine, sheer diaphanous material with beaded embroidered top and bottom edges which have tassels too, and beaded hand embroidered swirls throughout.
I'm not entirely sure what the material is. Possibly Polyester.
This scarf is very long at 66 inches and can be used as a wrap, or wrapped around the neck with the ends hanging down the front. It is in beautiful condition and I doubt that it has been worn much, if at all! It measures 66 by 13 inches and the tassels add on an extra 7 inches both ends. Would make a lovely addition to any evening outfit.
Length: 66 inches x 13 inches with a further 7 inches at each end for the tassels
(167 cm x 33cm x 17 at each end for tassels)
Price: 24 euro

This scarf is in very good condition with the exception of two very fine 'pull' lines which which I have shown in the last photo. These lines run the length of the scarf, but you actually cannot see them unless you hold the scarf up to the light and look extremely closely. In fact I didn't see them at all at first, until I was taking the photos. But I'm telling you, because you need to know. This is reflected in the price.
A lovely everyday scarf to add to your vintage collection.
