These are 4 magnificent 18th C. handkerchiefs and as such, by the looks of it, never bused for this purpose.
They are absolutely exquisitely made.
One of them has "the Royal Crown" embroidered on to the handkerchief and would certainly have come from the Royal Household at the time/
Would it not be wonderful if one could establish whether they belonged to the Arch Duchess of Austria, Marie Antoinette,who married Louis XVI at the Royal Opera House in 1770,we shall never know.
I feel they would be best displayed with a black back ground in felt and framed with a beautiful gold frame.
