Vintage Hankie Bag Holder, Handkerchief, Handmade Shirt with Provenance 1910s to 1930s 

Very cute handmade bag to hold your soiled hankies.
The shirt is about 12 x 12 inches. Made of blue cotton with pink cotton trim, tiny decorative buttons, and old ribbon bows on the shoulders.
It has a silk ribbon on the top to hang it and the top is open to put your hankies inside of it.
Comes with handwritten noting giving the provenance of the bag - 
'Soiled handkerchief bag. Hung on Grandma Ellis' bedroom door'

Grandma Ellis is Effie Randall Ellis 1866-1938.
I'm guessing that the bag was made in the 1910s, 1920s maybe 1930s.

The bag is in very good condition, lightly aged. The original ribbon for hanging was broken, so I added a new ribbon. The ribbon bows at the base of the new ribbon are old and original to the bag.
