Think I may have sorted the picture of the hankie. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Matt

It could be a commemorative Coronation handkerchief like the one below - the background colour seems similar:

You have the Tudor Rose, Thistle, Shamrock and Daffodil in the corners so that suggests the 4 home nations so that wouldn't be Elizabeth the First. It also seems more modern. Could be for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. She would have been ER too.

It appears to me that the hankie would be rather over-elaborate for any Royal, whether Queen or otherwise, to be using in everyday life. In my view the suggestion that it's a Coronation souvenir from 1953 is probably correct.

Hi,

Thanks for that. I was presuming it was a souvenir piece rather than a used royal piece, just didn't know who since the ER through me.

But seems my 1st thought of Queen Elizabeth II was correct. Thought queen mother is an interesting point.

Thanks for your help.

Matt

I think it is much more recent than the coronation. That shade of blue I have seen on china for the golden jubilee in 2002 and some of the commemoratives for the 'longest reigning monarch' were that shade of blue and purple. I would be very surprised if it is older than 15 years.

Thanks for that. I was trying to look up the colour scheme as thought it might relate to an event but couldn't seem to find anything related.

It's in pretty good condition and don't think it's 60+ years old.

Thanks

Matt

I definitely think it's an item commemorating an event though, and I have seen pieces that hold their colour for remarkably long periods of time, even from the Regency. Could this hankie have been made for the Queen's Golden Jubilee perhaps?

If its commemorating a specific event, would not that event be mentioned on it most times? The coronation one posted earlier say what it is commemorating.
