Antique Irish Crochet Lace Collar

Item Number L04905

If you are planning a trip to the San Francisco area of California before the end of July you must plan a visit the Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles.  There you will find the most glorious collection of antique Irish Crochet lace on exhibit for just one more month.  At this link you will find a marvelous history of this type of lace and a number of examples that are included in the museum's display:  http://lacismuseum.org/exhibit/Irish%20Crochet%20Lace.pdf  If you look there you will note that the two examples in my collection are as fine as any in the exhibit...

Fabulous and nearly perfect example of Irish crochet is fashioned as a collar terminating at the end with a large lily with three dimensional stamen that look like pearls.  Artfully arranged three dimensional motifs include roses, seed pods, ferns and posies which together make this a wonderful example of the style. It is beautifully executed and museum worthy -- a lace collector's must have.  The only evidence of use is the single raveled thread, shown below, which could easily be repaired.  White linen thread was used in it's making...it is creamy white and spotless, in perfect condition except as noted, and has been freshly laundered and gently pressed.  c.1880
