Early Antique Handmade Hollie Point Lace-Baby's Collar/Bib

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

This is one of the three pieces that all came together {see Baby's Cap}

This is an Early Antique Handmade Hollie Point Lace Baby's Collar/Bib.

Hollie Point is an English needle lace.

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"

The information that comes with this piece calls this a "Bib" but it is shaped like a collar, which hangs down the front or back {see photo's}. The Hollie Point is centred around the neck and the pattern represents "The Tree of Knowledge"

{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}

Length from back of neck down front is approx. 10½ inches. All beautiflly handsewn with tiny, tiny stitches

Conditionis very good.
