Item/Description: Vintage 1930s-1960s “Aloha Hawaii” handpainted handkerchief travel souvenir.
In addition to containing the wording “Aloha Hawaii”, this lovely little lady’s hankie is charmingly and decoratively adorned with hand-painted scenic imagery consisting of a beachfront cocoa brown thatched Tiki hut that sits nestled amidst two very tall, towering reddish-brown palm trees with swaying green palm fronds. In the background is a lush green forest. Pale blue accents around the house, trees and woodland forest give the impression of blue sky.
Highly cross-collectible, this stunning vintage handkerchief/scarf will appeal as much to Hawaiiana enthusiasts as it will to lovers of vintage linens and textiles.
With its gorgeous handpainted colorful scenic imagery, this darling little handkerchief displays exquisitely - just envision it inside a picture frame or shadowbox beautifully adorning a wall, desktop or table in your home, office or business establishment!
