CIRCA 1600's, RARE VENETIAN NEEDLE LACE BORDER. This lace came from the Grande Maison collection and was certainly important enough for them to write on the tag. "A.K.K. Sample, Do Not Sell" It is always a pleasure to see an early lace like this. Mounted on a velvet piece, the lace itself measures approx. almost 7" by almost 6". Good strong condition. A very good early lace for the lace collector.
