Vintage Handmade Lace & Embroidery Christening Collar Bib

We are pleased to offer a wonderful vintage (possibly antique) christening collar or bib. This piece was hand made in France.

The bib has two layers. The under layer is a double layer of very soft pure white fabric, probably cotton lawn. This layer is hand edged in very fine lace. The top layer is also hand made of the same fine lace and has hand embroidered flowers, leaves and scalloped edge.

The bib closes with a single, tiny Mother of Pearl button which fits into one of the scalloped loops at the back.

The collar measures approximately 9" x 8-1/2" and is in very good condition. We see one, possibly two, very light pinpoint spots on the underside layer. These are truly minuscule and might even come out if the piece is hand washed or dry cleaned.

This is truly a beautiful piece for a baby's christening. Or, it could be used as an overlay on a baby or doll outfit.
