VINTAGE "HANDKERCHIEF OF THE MONTH BY BURMEL AS SEEN IN VOGUE" VALENTINE HEARTS HANDKERCHIEF - NEW OLD STOCK
An absolutely gorgeous vintage "Handkerchief Of The Month By Burmel As Seen in Vogue". New Old Stock - Never Used!
The hanky is very soft and there a light sheen to the fabric which makes it beautiful. 4 large valentine hearts with scalloped edges. The colors fresh looking and vibrant in a scarlet with an off white background. Pretty bows decorate the center of the handkerchief. In one corner there is a tag which says ""Handkerchief Of The Month By Burmel As Seen in Vogue" On the underneath side there is a price tag from a store called McCurdy's and the price is $ .50 so that shows you how old the hanky is!
When I looked up McCurdy's store on the internet, it said that it was a Rochester, New York-based department store founded in 1901 and later aquired by May Department Stores.
This lovely hankie measures 14" x 14-1/4". No fabric content tag on it but probably cotton.
Absolutely gorgeous and so unique!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
