TEXTILE: CHILDREN'S HANDKERCHIEF

BLACK INTEREST. (TEXTILE) CHILDREN'S HANDKERCHIEF. This is a children's handkerchief from the turn of the 20th century. It measures 11" square. some foxing, VG-. All around the perimeter are 2 inch high figures of different stereotypical Black children done in 2-colors. Obviously given as a gift to a child named Eppie Clarke, the gift giver has printed (with type, not handwritten) "A present to Eppie Clarke" in the center of the handkerchief and "Remember Jackson Fair & School" in the margin. He or she has then printed a different name above each of the children pictured who are ostensibly names of Epppie's friends. A great piece of Americana.
