Antique Handkerchiefs exhibit opens

August 2, 2023

Event Navigation

The Fred and Addie Drummond Home will have a collection of antique handkerchiefs displayed in the historic home from August 2 through 31. The special collection of dainty squares of fabric will feature a variety of cheerful designs. In the late 1800s, women often carried a handkerchief to dab their nose and dry a tear. Before the mass production of disposable facial tissues after the Spanish Flu of 1918, handkerchiefs were commonly carried by men and women.

Women of the 19th century, like Adeline Drummond, elevated handkerchiefs through the skill of embroidery and tatting, adding monograms and designs.
