Antique EDWARDIAN TAMBOUR LACE Collar Capelet Hand Embroidered Tulle DIVINE!

A divine lace capelet all hand done on tulle with delicate floral motifs. This is an aristocratic garment from England, obviously done by one of the most expert professionals of the time, circa 1900.

The piece is an ecru color, with a delicate touch of gray in it. It may have been worn at a wedding, or on top of a silk satin or cotton lawn dress.

It is completely ethereal, and what is the most amazing part, absolutely creative.

Which means it does follow a strict lace tradition, but adds Art to its composition.

The capelet has the most elaborate inserts, a scattered point d'esprit in the tulle, and, this is really wild! minuscule loops on the edges.

Some areas between inserts are worked in the Irish lace manner, and some are done in a point de gaze manner, though in a way that is fairly different from Brussels lace. (Please see closeups.)

A small masterpiece of elegance and refinement which, can still be worn or displayed.

CONDITION:

Excellent. No holes or yellowing. A couple micro rust spots. Not visible. The piece was washed by hand and is fresh and clean.

MEASUREMENTS: Total Length: 65". Width: 12". (cm) by (cm) The piece will be shipped Registered Airmail (very safe!) including insurance and signature at delivery.
