A 19th Century tulle applique and tambour embroidered shawl or wedding veil, which was probably, made in Brussels. All the tulle applique is edged with the tambour stitching and there is additional tambour work to outline petals and leaf veins. The veil has a floral and foliate pattern with an esprit ground. It is 83" (211cm) long x 74" (188cm) wide. In good vintage condition, with some light age marking and some repairs.Most of the repairs are small, but there is a long repair in the centre. There are also a few small openings, but these are minor. The photographs, show any fault of any significance, but over a cream or ivory dress, they would not be very noticeable. I have other linen and lace listed. If your would like extra photographs, please message me.
