Antique Victorian French Crisp Airy Delicate Silk Chantilly Lace Trim Ink Black :
NOTE: Photos 1 - 3 depict actual lace being sold in sale. Remaining photos portray trim from another sale which is of the same, but with a silk taffeta trim along upper edge (this is presently being sold in another sale).
PLEASE READ "CONDITION DESCRIPTION" ABOVE..........of pure silk fibers....crisp lace showing no signs of deterioration or brittleness. Upper trim which is hand-stitched with brown threads consists of a pure silk taffeta base and is ruched/pleated at 1/2" intervals (unique). Authentic of the 19th century/1800s...Much lovelier in person....delicate, crisp lace...ink black in shade....one will love it.......perfect for the doll costumer.
This measures approximately a tad less than 35" x 4 3/4". Each scallop is about 1" across at widest point. There is aseam line(see Photo 2) at the 5.5" mark, however, once the lace is gathered, this will not be seen. Lovely, delicate, airy pure silk lace.
This is being sold "AS IS". Please note that flaws shown are not as prominent in person as they may appear at a closer view.
