"Tücher für Bekleidungszwecke, insbesondere Ziertücher"

Im Nizza Warenverzeichnis habe ich "neckerchiefs" für "Tücher für Bekleidungszwecke" gefunden, aber leider nichts für Ziertücher.

I am surprised that they still sell them. Maybe these are the ones made from cardboard, with a bit of fabric showing on top?

  -> Thanks Ingeborg. That's a new one on me.

agree  Richard Benham: I'll take your word for this, but I have grave doubts about neckerchiefs. It's one of those words I'm aware of, but don't remember ever seeing in actual use. How's a neckerchief different from a cravat, for example?
10 hrs
  -> Thanks Rich. Agree with you on Neckerchiefs. Assuming that context is hard to find, I would just guess "fabrics"

agree  jerrie: fancy handkerchief, (neatly folded) breast pocket handkerchief, according to Hohenadel textile dico
