These are a pair of beautiful fine Brussels Point de Gaze lace cuffs. They each measure 26 ins x 3.2 ins. And have mostly been made in one piece - each has a neat join to the tulle above the needlelace border (photo 5).
Pale Ivory colour, excellent condition, but they feel a little soft and wrinkled - I think they may have been laundered at some stage. I acquired these as part of wonderful collection of lace, still in the original L. Hanze Dossaer & Co, Ostende, box. Some pieces are used, some unused. Hanze Dossaer, 5, Rue de la Bride were founded in 1840 and seem to have been both retail shop and lace manufacturers.The item "Pair antique/vintage Brussels Point de Gaze lace wide cuffs" is in sale since Thursday, April 06, 2017.
