Here's a glorious piece of lace - a new find from the trunk. It is in excellent condition; but could use a professional cleaning.
There are 3 tiny pinholes in the net at the very top of the lace. It measures: 72 inches long and is 8 1/2 inches wide.
Not being quite sure is it is indeed handmade, I took a couple of pictures of the same flower motif from two different locations. Photo #5 is the underside of one flower, #6 is the front. If you have a big enough screen, you can follow the threads.Next, I took two photos of another flower from two different areas and there are differences between the two - one has more little bumps than the other. You can draw your own conclusions. I can take more photos, if you desire. Please contact me if you have any questions.
