#m4748 – GENE KELLY CAN HE DANCE VINTAGE NAPKIN - $28.00

WHEN I PURCHASED THIS ITEM, IT WAS DESCRIBED AS A HANDKERCHIEF – IT IS NOT, IT IS A NAPKIN. IT’S STILL A NEAT AND COLLECTIBLE ITEM!

IT HAS A LIKENESS/BUST OF GENE KELLY WITH HIS NAME AND THE QUESTION CAN HE DANCE. NAPKIN MEASURES 10 ½” X 10 ½” AND IS IN WONDERFUL CONDITION. I NOTICED SOME VERY MINOR COLOR LOSS (COULD BE PRODUCTION) BUT I HAVE PRICED ITEM TO REFLECT THIS IMPERFECTION.

#m4745 – SET OF TWO VINTAGE FALL LEAVES HANKIES WITH BURMELL LABELS NEW OLD STOCK - $30.00

THE OTHER IS THE MORE DIFFICULT TO FIND BLACK BACKGROUND WITH YELLOW AND TAN FALL COLOR LEAVES. THE LEAVES ARE MAPLE LEAVES AND THERE ARE “WHIRLIES” SCATTERED AROUND THE HANKIES.

AS NOTED, THESE ARE NEW OLD STOCK HANKIES. I LAUNDERED, LIGHTLY STARCHED AND IRONED THEM – THEN LIGHTLY PLACED THE ORIGINAL BURMEL STICKERS/LABELS BACK ON THE HANKIES.

THIS WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL FRAMED AND WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT GIFT FOR A HORSE OWNER OR FOR THAT YOUNG GIRL DREAMING OF ONE DAY HAVING A HORSE OF HER OWN. (BEEN THERE MYSELF – AFTER YEARS OF ASKING/BEGGING/PLEADING, MY DAD FINALLY PURCHASED A BEAUTIFUL RED WITH WHITE BLAZE HORSE FOR ME – HER NAME WAS RUBY.
