Cloth square printed in red. Large red square at center is painted with rows of the initials "TR" for Teddy Roosevelt. The border is made up of repeats of the Teddy's face, wearing red hat and neckerchief. This handkerchief was issued by the National Kerchief Co. to promote Teddy's Bull Moose Part candidacy, referencing his Rough Rider image from the Spanish American War.
