Dainty sheer cotton mull what I think must have been an apron, now with no ties. Beautifully hand embroidered in Dresden work?And may date as early as the late 18thc. Note the padded stitching on reverse that is top stitched down on front. Trimmed out in hand Valenciennes lace that is early but more likely 19thc. Straight edge top and round corners at the bottom. In excellent condition with one barely noticeable and finely executed darn that in of itself is a marvel.
