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.
