Historical information

This elegant lace is machine made with a spotted background above a floral pattern. It is reminiscent of a fine needlepoint lace. This type of lace remained popular into the 20th century being used mainly to decorate women’s clothing. Due to its open appearance it was used to embellish and be worn over clothing of a different colour.
