This is a gorgeous lace handkerchief made in Switzerland by Doerig. The hankie is still in its original box and was never removed, so it is unused and in original like-new condition even though it was bought during the 1980s. The label reads “Doerig Swiss Made Pur Fil Dentelle de St-Gall”. Pur fil is a French expression that means “Pure Linen”. St Gall is a famous lace making and textile center located in Eastern Switzerland. The price tag is still present and it appears that the original owner paid 110 Swiss Francs for this handkerchief - the Swiss Franc has traditionally traded for more than the US dollar, so this was a very expensive hankie. The box measures 9 1/8” square, but the hankie is somewhat folded in the box, so I would estimate that the hankie measures about 13”-14” square. This is a beautiful hankie, brand new, but old - a gorgeous accessory for a wedding day, or just a gorgeous item to own and admire.
