This auction is for a great old 1893 handkerchief from the Columbian Exposition/1893 Chicago World's Fair. I believe it's silk, with lightly colored (or faded??) embroidery in all four corners, and printed with a scene of the "Landing of Columbus" Also reads "Souvenir World's Fair Chicago 1492-1893" A small amount of staining here and there. I have not attempted to iron this, as you can see in the image; but I have no reason to think you won't be able to. A good size at 10.5" square. Nice item from the fair; now almost 120 years old, of course. A true antique.
