Naval Flags of 1840, © Museum of London
This pocket square is taken from the design of a silk handkerchief in the collection of the Museum of London. It would have originally been created with a plate print in dark brown ink with watercolours added by hand. Naval subjects were of great interest during the 19th century, and this handkerchief may have been used as a means of learning to recognise flags and standards. The flags of Russia, Spain, America and France dominate the corners, with the British Royal Standard in the centre. Originally, owner’s initials, 'IFH' were embroidered in black cross-stitch in the corner. The central Royal Standard comes with the caption: "Royal Standard of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, 1840" and it has a narrow black band border.
This square is a great addition to any collection, the base white matching with most jackets and the flags adding small bursts of colour as well as a great talking point. We particularly like it in a winged puff or 2 point fold.
