50-inches of 3 1/2-inch wide antique Brussels bobbin lace trim joined at the center to form a 7-inch wide, 25-inch long section. The two pieces are joined loosely with basting stitches through the lower piece's engrelure, and could easily be separated into two identical pieces, both with a solid engrelure on top and a shaped bottom edge with picots. The clothwork features a wonderful combination of linen- and half-stitch with tiny open sections of criss-crossing twisted threads, and there are various ornaments including armure and other "snow" grounds. The clothwork, outline and braided bars are extremely fine and 10x magnification is needed to see the braiding and other thread manipulations. In excellent antique condition with a few minor age-related spots.
