Vintage Childs Hanky Handkerchief German Struwwelpeter

Very unique! The size makes me believe this hanky is meant for a child, but that is pretty scary for a child! 8 ¾” x 9 ¼” Great condition. From Wikipedia: This is a German Nursery Rhyme called "Der Struwwelpeter (1845) is a popular German children's book by Heinrich Hoffmann . It comprises ten illustrated and rhymed stories, mostly about children. Each has a clear moral that demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehavior in an exaggerated way. The title of the first story provides the title of the whole book. Literally translated, Struwwel-Peter means Shaggy-Peter. Struwwelpeter describes a boy who does not groom himself properly and is consequently unpopular. "
