PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Set of 6 pocket cotton handkerchiefs embroidered with floral motifs inspired by Victorian pattern books and floriography, including lily-of-the-valley and yellow rose. Throughout the Victorian era, the Language of Flowers flourished in England and the United States. Through gifts of floral arrangements and blooms, subtle and sentimental messages could be exchanged in a genteel manner. "Talking bouquets" or nosegays were a way in which these could be fashionably worn or carried by women of the era, whilst floral subjects in 19th century art captured popular notions of romance and beauty. Each square cotton handkerchief features an appliqué posy, reflecting interests in embroidery and needlework as a pastime. In the Language of Flowers, the lily-of-the-valley signified the return of happiness whilst a yellow rose symbolised friendship. This set of fine cotton handkerchiefs would make an especially thoughtful gift for a friend and can be scented with favourite essential oils for a fragrant touch.
