The Gatherings is offering this Victorian handkerchief or hankie from the 1880's era.  It is a chromolithograph printed hankie.  A charming subject matter of an older child teaching a younger girl how to dance. 

Another child is playing the flute, while in the background, a fourth child is clapping.  Beneath the print, the title, THE FIRST STEP.  A black twig border of twining flowers edges the handkerchief.  It is American made. 

Size is 12" x 13".   The center picture, itself,  measures 6-1/8" x 7-3/8".  One fabric edge is a selvage.  The remainder are raw edges.

The handkerchief is good condition except for one pin dot hole in the border and some oxidation over the years. 

Note:  This handkerchief is pictured in the J.J. Murphy book on handkerchiefs, page 42, Plate 83.
