I am offering these together. Both of these collars are very old and not new.
The ecru French Alencon collar is heavily embellished with different size pearls and prong set marquis and round rhinestones. This collar has been attached to blue silk. The silk addition is very nicely done and may or may not be easy to remove. The condition of this collar is very good. I do notice a few loose pearls, as well as some difference in the pearl colors from one side to the other. This must have taken a great deal of time to complete and is quite unusual. The applied pearls and rhinestones are all hand done.
The petite Brussels or Belgium lace collar has losses around the edge, as well as a few small holes. Overall, it is in very usable condition and nice for a doll dress, or small neckline. This collar is an oyster white color. I recently washed and pressed this item. It is slightly stiff from previous starching, but nothing unpleasant. The edge of this collar could be repaired with some patience and small stitches.
Please email with any questions. Thank you.
