Elaborate Unique Victorian Hand Crafted French Linen Lace
Elaborate Victorian Hand Crafted French Linen Lace. This exquisite rare piece of Victorian lace was entirely hand made in France with an Ivory coloured fine linen. It may have been used as a curtain, line a shelf, babies crib or perhaps a shawl? I have shown many photos to show the elaborate lace design, check out the large impressive floral motifs. The top edge is slightly gathered with a scalloped piece of lace sewn onto tape which was obviously used to tie onto something. Condition is excellent, I found no damage and all is intact, the linen threads are strong with no breaks or staining, just a few rust specs on the tape. Approximate measurement is, along the top edge 135cm or 53 inches. Along the bottom edge 169cm or 106 inches. Depth is 64cm or 25 inches. Weight is 307 grams unpackaged. All our linens are Antique or Vintage, hand made and embroidered unless stated otherwise, We take pride in the quality and present them laundered and pressed. Sometimes there are minor imperfections due to age and normal wear, we point out the obvious faults for accuracy and describe to the best of our knowledge but sometimes mistakes can be made and we might miss something. Many of our English linens are early 1900s era, some will have a small number or initial in the corner, this was a common practice in the yesteryear's for laundry purposes and is part of their history. I take my photos outdoors and with a macro lens, where I can inspect their condition in natural light and to get the best quality picture. "Only" and should not be relied upon.
