CIRCA 16-17THC. SUPERB VENETIAN POINT LACE PANEL
CIRCA 16-17THC. SUPERB VENETIAN POINT LACE PANEL. A early panel of Venetian lace finished on three sides and possibly part of a item from a Church.perhaps a chalice cover or some other piece for the altar? Measuring approx. 38-39" by 19 1/4" wide.The mirror image design has undulating vines and florals . This lace came from a very early lace collection that was once part of a important collection of very early laces. In very good strong condition, this was well kept, perhaps a few scattered openings but basically minor. A wonderful item for the early lace collector.
