Bariec-07/04 Store

Early Antique Baby's Cap or "Biggin" -Handmade Hollie Point Lace.

The following 3 baby items all came together. All from the same period.

This is an Early Antique Baby's Cap or "Biggin" with handmade Hollie Point Lace {needle lace} at the back crown and nape.

In the book "An Illustrated Guide To Lace" by Emily Reigate, she writes "Hollie Point was worked at home, for baby clothes chiefly. Hollie point is an English stitch and does not appear to have been used on the Continent. It is a charming rectangular knotted stitch which was used for all sorts of semi religious symbols"

This little cap is made from very fine cotton, all beautifully handsewn and embroidered with tiny sprigs around the head {see photo's}The gathering for the crown is finely embroidered, with the Hollie Point lace in the centre and down the back nape.{The piece of paper which came with these items, I have photographed, it reads "Baby's Cap or Biggin" and Bib, ornamented with Hollie work, representing the Tree of Knowledge and the Flower Pot of the Annunciation. Time of Queen Elizabeth" {this must be queen Elizabeth the First}

The brim is in two layers. Photographed on a doll with a head circumference of 14 inches.

Condition:- It has not been cleaned, so a few marks and a small area of wear on the top layer of brim. Stitching is worn at the nape {see photo's} The hand sewing on this is minute, beautiful and intricate and Hollie Point is not easy to find these days. For its age it is in very good condition.

Some photo's show the inside.

Please study photo's to assess condition.

Photo's are not actual size please refer to description for measurements.
