Fabulous antique French liturgical lace is hand embroidered with very fine satin stitched motifs of roses, flowers and foliage. There are many tiny needle lace fillings and buttonhole stitch details.
Sadly the tiny cotton net is fragile and has tears holes etc, but the fine darning repairs are incredible in themselves and reflect the value and time spent on this beautiful embroidered textile.
The embroidery is in excellent condition.
A clever needle artist can use the beautiful linen/cotton embroidery for many decorative accessories: lampshades, hats, small boxes, doll restoration, etc.
Lace is 19 inches in width and three yards 11 inches in length.
