The Pickwickians, c.1839-1845. © Museum of London

  • 100% Silk
  • Hand-rolled
  • Designed and Printed in Britain
  • 42cm x 42cm

One of our favourite squares in this collection, this silk pocket square is reproduced from an original cotton handkerchief produced between 1839-1845. It commemorates the novelist Charles Dickens and his hugely popular Pickwick Papers. The handkerchief was designed by Hablot Knight Browne, or 'Phiz', who was the original illustrator for the Pickwick Papers.

The central image of Dickens is based on an engraving by Finden after a portrait by Daniel Maclise of 1839. This is surrounded by a wreath, which depicts the much loved characters from the papers including Mr Pickwick, top centre and Samuel Weller to his left. Around the border is printed a sepia graphic with, in each of the four corners, a gothic tracery arch with grotesque heads and two goblins pulling back a curtain to show an arrangement of books, the closest with the word 'Boz' on its spine - the pen name of Charles Dickens.

In front of the books lies an inkwell with two quills and, at the back, a cupid holding a further quill. This design is similar to the frontispiece of the 1837 edition of the Pickwick Papers illustrated by Knight Browne. The original handkerchief was likely printed in response to the huge demand for all things 'Pickwickian' at the time and may have been part of the regalia acquired by the many Pickwick Clubs that sprang up after the publication of the book.

When you look at the images of the pocket squares you imagine them to be good. But when you hold it in your hands and see the intricate details you’re just blown away. Can’t recommend enough. Absolutely a little slice of luxury. Zak - United Kingdom

I just took delivery of my first Rampley pocket square and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled. The quality is far superior to any other pocket squares that I own. The complimentary collar stays were a nice gesture, too. First rate company, first rate product. Trevor - Canada

I have ordered several products from Rampley and Co and in each instance it has been an absolute pleasure. The pocket squares that I have are of unmatched quality with exceptional colour, design and cloth. Even though I am located in Sydney, the customer service (particularly Emily) has been flawless and willing to ‘go the extra mile’. The shipping is very prompt and well presented.


Ben Brewster - The Cuff

Over the past couple years I've become more cognizant of the spark that a well-chosen pocket square can add to tailoring, and the exceptional designs from Rampley & Co are a big reason why. The classic art pictured on each square is undoubtedly the brand's signature appeal, but even smaller details like intricate border patterns and hand-rolled edges give each piece a one-of-a-kind feel.

Linus Norrbom - Menswear Influencer

From a person that feels naked without a pocket square in the chest pocket of my jacket, I can honestly say that Rampley & Co. have changed the way I look upon pocket squares. It is truly a great joy wear a piece of art in your pocket. They feature carefully selected artwork motifs, beautifully printed on high-quality silk and well handcrafted with nice hand-rolled edges.

Jamie Azzopardi - Celebrity Stylist

For the past couple of years I have followed the journey of Rampley & Co and I must say I am such a fan of their work. Their attention to details, fine British construction and ability to uniquely collaborate with an array of businesses, both fashion and art based, not only pulls at my heartstrings, but as a stylist and lifestyle blogger, gives me sincere hope that art and fashion do have a mainstream future together.
