Rare - United States Army - 3 Piece Handkerchief Set in Embroidered Satin Case. This beautiful set was found in the Military Locker of my Late Uncle who served in the US Army during World War II. I'm not sure if they called these sweetheart handkerchiefs, because the ones I saw online called sweetheart were actually marked "Sweetheart" . These are not. They just say: United States Army which is embroidered on each handkerchief, along with the US Army logo of the Eagle. They look to be rayon, and each measure: 9" x 9", and have matching white embroidered edges as well. One is pink, a deep red and a green one. The embroidery is beautifully detailed. The beautiful satin pillow case is pink on one side, light blue on the other, and has a beautiful embroidered white lace United States Army Logo with the Eagle with outstretched wings. On each side of is a satin ribbon, and below a larger matching ribbon of amazing detail (see photos) ! The set is in excellent condition and has been lovingly stored unused since World War II in climate controlled conditions in his military foot locker.
