Museum Monday!

Child's Handkerchief, 893.2016.16
 This weeks Museum Monday lucky number is 893! This little hanky came in the same lot as 902 that we covered a few Mondays ago~ its utterly charming and has been cut down from a larger kerchief and seamed on two sides.
Inked in the upper corner is 'A Pott' over a 12, the number 12 not necessarily denoting a year date, but more likely a laundry marking, telling us it was 12th in the owners stash of hankies!
If you enjoy Museum Mondays, please choose a number between 1-950 and post in the comment section~ Ill add it to the jar and pick one randomly for next week's post!
