    Hey Everyone,
    These two little silk scarves were together. I'm thinking WW1 due to the Allies list. The border on the one looks like it was silk screened? Would this have been a mass produced silk pattern? The embroidered one has two little hands shaking bw the flags.
    Never seen these before so interested to here anything about such!

    They are WWI, made in France and Belgium as a cottage industry and sold on base to soldiers through stores (base exchanges), so when soldiers were on leave they could buy them and slip them into letters home.
