  1. Great handkerchief! But... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2017

    This is a great handkerchief, with a common historic pattern that goes back to the mid 1700s. It's just big enough to possibly use as a neckcloth too. However, be careful - the color is not as dark as it is pictured online. It's more of a "brick red," almost a dark pink. Great for that faded look, but not what I expected. Still would recommend the purchase!
