Antique Irish Crochet Lace Collar

Three Dimensional Elements

Item Number L05005

If you are planning a trip to the San Francisco area of California before the end of July you must 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...

This is the finest piece of Irish Crochet lace I have seen in person...  An artfully arranged collection of three dimensional motifs join together to make this a sampler of the style including roses, pansies, seed pods, Irises and best of all, shaggy and amazing chrysanthemums -- It is museum worthy in every way from design to execution.  The only evidence of use is the single linen tab sewn on one corner with an old chain stitch sewing machine, which could easily be removed.  White linen thread was used in it's making...it is creamy white and spotless, in perfect condition and has been freshly laundered and gently pressed.  c.1880  21.5" X 19"
