ATTWOOD
(150 items)

This is my fav.The colour in it is as brilliant as the day as it was made.
The tag reads "These are real Egyptian work.I got them in the bazaar in Cairo." Art
This is the size of a cushion.I think that's what they were made for to attach as a front of a cushion.
There are silk hankies as well.
next lot of pics
I have managed to frame these for my friend in memory of her father.
We only found out he served in ww1 & 2 recently.I have had it framed for my friend with the french lace postcards.

    Just wonderful, ATTWOOD!
    Congratulations on a wonderful find!

    Fratelli Pegni, Cairo.
    A handkerchief from the same firm here at Museum New Zealand:

    Probably the same dimensions?

    They have a page on handkerchiefs but yours looks to be better than any seen there.
