Quite ornate handwork on this very long & wide Irish Carcickmacross lace. The lace has it's original cream color patina , but could be bought up white as all lace was colored with tea infusions in those days as opposed to dyes. 202" by 21" wide, 513.08 cm by 53.34 cm. The net is almost entirely covered with undulating vines, flowers & leaves with tiny flowers also all along the scalloped edges.
Part of a museum deaccession of lace. This seems as if it was never used, a few tiny openings, a very small repair along a flower, absolutely minor. In very good strong condition.
