English speakers only please.

Welcome to the Fabric, Lace & Trims Department.

For dressmakers, renovaters, collectors and those with a creative heart!

These are three lovely antique pieces of lace, all quite large, and a bit of a mystery in one way or another. Please read the details carefully.

* The first is Carickmacross of a very detailed design, at first glance it appears to be a fichu, shaped with shoulder seams and a wide border all around the edge. Lovely! But when one puts it on a mannequin the centre back curve is also shaped and so does not lie flat; it is rounded. Not easy to describe, but I almost wondered if this part should be on the head! Surely not, it is too shallow.

A nice antique creamy colour, with a soft staining around the back of the neck & very slight elsewhere. A few pinholes, and a larger hole to repair, but still very small. The two front points are cut off, as if it were attached to a gown.

Neck edge 47", centre back depth [excluding the curve!] 17.5".

* The second is easy! A lovely long collar with lappet fronts, a carrickmacross type again, with tamboured motif edges, very pretty and in excellent condition. Clean cream, a couple of nibbles to the edge and a pinhole spot to the ground.

Neck edge 43", centre back depth 6.5".

* The third is a straight piece, but my favourite. I have no idea what it is! A very dense net ground, although lightweight, with again solid motifs that at first I thought were carickmacross but I now think it is dense lacework. Quite a strong gimp thread to the outlines of the motifs and beautiful lace infils.

This certainly seems older than the other two, and could possibly be silk. A mystery to me but very attractive indeed. A lovely cream colour, no stains, a few tiny holes to the net ground. I would call it very good indeed.

34" x 8.5", finished to 3 edges but cut at one end.

I don't mind what they sell for, but please let me know what type of lace the third piece is!

Please do take a look in my shop if you have the time!

Payment within5 days please. Sorry, no cheques. Paypal only from overseas. Paypal or uncrossed postal order from the UK. No collections for small items.

A very kind lady has told me that the third piece here, that fascinated me so much, is imitation Alencon, late 19th to early 20th Century. How can they do this on a machine? I am constantly amazed by lace!
