French Vintage Hand Embroidered Handkerchief

I recently found this amazing hanky in Paris and could hardly believe the intricate hand work! The bouquet of roses, daisies, lily of the valley and more have such detail. The colors are so bright and vivid. The bouquet is surrounded by swirling car-touche woven into the sheer linen. It's hard to believe, but that even seems to be hand stitched, as there are no 2 exactly alike. I've spent much time examining even with a jewelers loupe. I might be wrong, but I've never seen anything I can compare it to. The last photo shows the back side. Of course, the hems are hand rolled and stitched. It measures 12" square. It has never been used and seems to have some sizing on it. Slight discoloration from storage all these years, but will launder to be perfect. Delightful for you or as a gift! Thank you for visiting
