CIRCA 19THC. SUPERB BRUSSELS NEEDLELACE
CIRCA 19THC. SUPERB BRUSSELS NEEDLELACE. This example was probably cut down from a larger collar at some point.A good reminder NEVER to cut good lace. There is no reason as there is so much lace that is not significant that can be cut. Be that as it may... this must have been cut at a later date as no one in a earlier date would have cut such a beautiful lace. Measuring approx. 16 1/2" by 6" wide. A few minor openings, otherwise lace is in very good strong condition. The lace has it's original cream patina.
