About this title

Synopsis:

This delightful book, shaped like an actual handkerchief, features over 650 hankies in full color, ranging from the 1940s to the early 1960s.

There is even a section on the care and decorative uses of handkerchiefs. 2004 values. AUTHORBIO: Helene Guarnaccia has been interested in antiques for many years. When her children were young and she taught Spanish, she enjoyed going to antique shows and flea markets, furnishing her home in period items. In the 1980s, Helene became an antiques dealer and has written four books on Salt & Pepper Shakers for Collector Books, which have sold over 100,000 copies. She also co-authored a book on Handkerchiefs in 2003. AUTHORBIO: Barbara Guggenheim has a doctorate in art history and is a well-known art consultant, lecturer, and contributor to W and other journals. By day, Barbara helps individuals and corporations purchase fine art, and by night and on weekends, she is a collectibles junkie. She is passionate about her collections, which include handkerchiefs, salt and pepper shakers, Eiffel Towers, 1940s and 1950s tablecloths, lighthouses, ironstone, ceramic poodles, and many more. REVIEW: This book is a fascinating read, and a surprise if you're used to traditional white, lace-edged hankies. There's so much more to handkerchiefs, and you will see them all in this book. The hankies featured are predominately from the 1940s through the 1960s, during an era where they went from being something that you used and needed to kitsch fashion accessories.
