ELABORATE 19THC. BRUSSELS PRINCESS LACE SHAWL /VEIL
ELABORATE 19THC. BRUSSELS PRINCESS LACE SHAWL/VEIL. A elaborate Brussels Princess lace shawl measuring apporx. 100" by 17" wide.The shawl has a gentle cream patina and has masses of very pretty flowers with deep borders on each end and scalloped edges all around. As most lace was colored cream during that time, light tea infusions were used to color the lace as cream was the very popular color for marriages so if one wanted the shawl white for a wedding then that is easy to do.In very good codnition, shawl seems unused.
