This pocket handkerchief features apple blossom motifs in each corner, with cobwebs strung between two of them.

It belonged to Emily Hannah Francis, of Garden City, and was part of a collection of 145 souvenir and commemorative handkerchiefs put together by Emily, sent to her by pen friends from around the world, up to her death in 1943.
