(22 reviews) Write a Review
Original Lt. John Selden Handkerchief

The original of this handkerchief is in the Selden collection in the Museum of the Confederacy, along with Lt. Selden's frock coat, trousers, shirt, and other items.  Our reproduction is a faithful copy of the original, being 100% cotton and measures 28 x 23 inches.  This is the largest of our handkerchief offerings to date!

A must for any great impression!

    Lovely Pattern and Quality; Great around neck

    This, like many other products from South Union Mills are made with great quality. I love the various patterns in particular because I think it is rather difficult to find patterns like those from the era. This product goes especially well with navy attire.

    Useful - Authentic Look

    This was the first SUM product that I bought. The large size allows you to wrap it around your neck. Being a copy of an authentic historical piece that has a real story behind it makes be proud to wear it in honor of Lt. Selden and his sacrifices. Combine quality construction with a traceable history and you have a winner. For a reasonable price this handkerchief allows you to improve your impression. Throw out your "gas station" bandana, as one guy accurately called them, and get one of these beauties.

    Excellent Reproduction.

    This line of handkerchiefs are Jim Dandy offerings for the living historian. Good variety of colors and styles as well. Until Chris began offering these, I'm unaware of any other source of accurate, pre-made period handkerchiefs (save for bespoke) either, let alone direct copies of documented originals. Highly recommended
