Handmade Antique Cotton Bobbin Lace

Regular price $40.00

This is handmade lace.  That means someone sat down in front of a pillow full of pins with tiny bobbins of cotton thread and twisted, wove and braided this finery into existence.  There are 4 continuous yards which equals several day's work for a lace maker.  Sold as one piece.

Condition: This has some discolorations due to age.  It has been gently hand washed, but I have not tried to whiten it.  It was removed from a garment at some point and there are some loose threads from that garment still remaining.
