Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Exceptional Antique Normandy Lace

Doily or Centerpiece

Item Number L04605

Stunning for it's detail and hand work, this antique Normandy lace centerpiece or tray cloth is made up of more than 20 individual pieces, some as small as a nickel.  The very center is perfectly embroidered net which is surrounded by a round, embroidered chemical lace inset.  Next is an embroidered "chintz" pattern on net, then4 panels of hand made Valenciennes lace.  These are worked into the pattern carefully and perfectly at each corner, which because of their irregular shape required tiny net lace filling pieces.  The piece is finished with two flat rows of Valenciennes lace and and an outer ruffle of the same.  Unusual in white instead of cream and in perfect condition.  It is freshly laundered and pressed.  c.1880's - 1900  16" X 16"
