Antique Irish Crochet Lace Collar

Three Dimensional Elements

Item Number L014810

Several years ago the Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles in San Francisco published a beautiful pictorial tutorial on antique Irish crochet lace .  At this link you will find this marvelous resource for the history of this type of lace: http://lacismuseum.org/exhibit/Irish%20Crochet%20Lace.pdf   Photos in this pdf file include breathtaking examples, some of which are similar to the beautiful collar listed for sale here.

Antique Irish crochet lace collar has three dimensional elements and is artfully designed and executed in grand, feminine style.  A break on the attached lace edge at the neck (which could be removed and replaced) is the only flaw.  There are threads here and there where the piece was removed from it's previous garment.  In good to excellent condition and has been freshly laundered and gently pressed.  c.1880's  6" deep X 14" inside neck
