Huge box - family antique lace collection - Honiton, Carrickmacross etc. After months of rain and dismal weather here in Scotland it was a real tonic to arrive in Provence to a brilliantly blue sky! I will be starting to list it all as I unpack, launder and photograph, so do keep popping back over the next few weeks. Of course you are always welcome to contact me through my website. If you want me to look for anything in particular, and you can follow my trips on Facebook too.My next trip to France will be mid March - the pre-Easter markets are always a treat, with dealers arriving from all over France. A fabulous box of family lace - unsorted and unlaundered. This is a treasure trove for those of you who make antique dolls clothing, and other projects requiring Victorian lace. There are over 100 panels in the box. I can spot many panels of handmade Honiton lace, some Maltese lace, Schiffli lace, some long lengths of Carrickmacross lace, a pair of Victorian lace fingerless mittens, a fine lace handkerchief, collars, hand embroidered whitework edgings, handmade Milanese lace, a beautiful Edwardian blouse (with some damage, but perfect for projects), embroidered tulle lingerie lace, doilies and more. Lots of longer lengths of edging trim. Those of you have won boxes of antique lace from me in the past will know that this really is unsorted, with good lace (not just small bits).
The vintage dress box in which the lace was found measures 48cms x 30cms x 9cms. I sell antique and vintage textiles and ephemera - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their charm. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life.

Please note that as I sell unique, antique textiles and ephemera, any item you return MUST be well packed and received in exactly the same condition as sent. I always try to offer my customers excellent service.
