Oval needle lace is completely handmade with tiny buttonhole stitch and picot fillings. Design depicts doves and floral motifs with tiny stitches and fillings. Oval Mats were used for trays, fine linens and curtains. I have shown a picture of the lace back-lighted on a lampshade. These ovals are in excellent unused condition. Lace measures 6 by 15 inches each.
