CIRCA 1900,. ETHEREAL BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE WEDDING VEIL
CIRCA 1900, ETHEREAL BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE WEDDING VEIL. A long and lavish Brussels Point de Gaze wedding veil measuring approx.120-130" long. There is a handmade Brussels Point De Gaze lace wedding cap and then approx. a 30" double layered length with Brussels Point De Gaze at the top of the veil and then the long veil which has been made with diaphanous silk tulle and is double layered. This was assemble during the 1900's with earlier Brussel Point De Gaze lace and was probably made by a skilled wedding dress maker.The edge of the lace has a later Valencienne lace all around the edges. The veil is quite voluminous and has a wonderful ethereal quality to it. In very good condition, a few openings near bottom edge, a common problem with such very long wedding veils, it isn't even easily seen, one could repair or even shorten slightly if desired. This seems as if it was probably worn once. This is a veil that certainly would look wonderful on the bride! One would not really worry too much about the dress, as the veil is quite extravagant.
