Black Satin Velvet Brocade Kerchief | Slovakia


In stock


Origin: Slovakia
Era: WWII era (circa 1930-1950)
Condition: very good; suitable for both wear and display
Measurements: 29.5″ x 30″
Additional Notes: A particularly fine example of a traditional black satin kerchief from southern Slovakia. This kerchief is unique due to the raised velvet floral motifs. The color, texture and reflective nature of the kerchief made it rather difficult to photograph accurately, but rest assured that it is in excellent condition and the surface is bright and shiny (not grainy as it appears in the photos). Such kerchiefs were worn in southern Slovakia as well as in Hungary where they were likely manufactured.
