Lt. John Selden Handkerchief

(20 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!

    Great niche product

    Another excellent Union Mills product. Now, I don't have to tear up an old piece of white cotton. Thanks, Chris.

    Love it!

    I try to get all the reproduction gear I can that is copied from actual relics and artifacts. This is one of those items. Very nice! Throw out those paisley gas station bandannas and get one of these repros to improve your impression. Well worth it!

    There has been a lack of textiles of this general nature. For some reason the focus always seems to be on the upper end of the economic spectrum. The plebeian handkerchief/bandanna has been sorely lacking. Thank you for making the effort to fill the gap.

    No more Chinese red bandana or old piece of flour sack for this Yankee.

    Finding the fresh corpse of a well turned out Rebel captain face-up on the field. I availed myself of the contents of his pockets. The useless Confederate paper money made its way to the nearest "convenience." However, the neatly folded handkerchief- which I gather had just come from loving hands at home- has proven an indispensable addition to my kit. I keep it close- even after I wash it in cold spring water - I don't want any of the boys "eyeballing" it while it dries. An excellent and highly recommended item. It's the little things that count!

    We received this part of our order today. The rest is to come next week. This is a beautiful handkerchief. We really like the material, the size and the color. A great product.

    Great field handkerchief

    Posted by Dave Hull on 2nd Mar 2015

    Received my new handkerchief the other day, which arrived promptly. The Lt. Selden kerchief will make a fine field handkerchief. Puts me in the mind of the OD green rag I used my entire time in the Army for just about every conceivable use imaginable. This will definitely be my battlefield handkerchief.

    Another Solid Example

    Posted by Louie on 14th Dec 2014

    When you're in the field there are some things you do not want to go with out and a good handkerchief is one of them. They need to be strong, durable and functional as well as authentic. This handkerchief fits all those needs perfectly.

    Lovely in neutral tones

    Beautiful piece and large enough for many uses. I like it quite a bit.
