Vintage Hankies

What with my harebrained new project, maybe it's no surprise that I've suddenly become a collector of vintage hankies (something I've secretly loved forever). Here are a few of my latest finds:

I'm pretty sure that no matter how hard I try, my hankies are never going to look this amazing.

Of course, that's part of the appeal.

These things are works of art, but made to be utilitarian objects too.

 So then, all sorts of other questions arise.

Do I wash them? Some of them have clearly never been used. Many are folded into this lovely square shape, designed to fit in the box and still show off the whole pattern.

Or do I just keep them like this?
