Deep flounce, probably 18th century. Could have been a furnishing lace, to be used as a bed skirt or surrounding a dressing table, or suitable as a Church lace.
Lots of interesting filling and background stitches; wonderful flowing design of stylized flowers and leaf fronds.
Size: 15 inches deep, 34 inches long.
Cut edge at the top tells us this was salvaged from a wider piece. Some wear and tear in the lace, but overall in very good condition,
