A FINE AND RARE EMBROIDERED HANDKERCHIEF ONCE OWNED BY FAMOUS FILM ACTRESS LILLIAN GISH (1893-1993). Together with a signed certificate from WALT DISNEY ATTRACTIONS, INC. stating that the handkerchief is from the estate of LILLIAN GISH. The handkerchief is extremely fine and delicate and features pale blue silk embroidery. Scalloped corners. The name "LILLIAN" is embroidered, in script, on one corner. The handkerchief measures 8 1/2 inches square. American film legend Lilian Gish was known as "THE FIRST LADY OF THE SILENT SCREEN". She was also a stage and TV actress and was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 1971. The certificate is authentic Disney - please note enlargement 5 which I have photographed to show that the paper has Disney's WATERMARK which is visible when the certificate is held up to the light.
