SALE! 15% OFF! Offered is a lovely example of a tatted collar. The ecru tone and tatting confirm a romantic style. The pretty scalloped edge formed from the tatted medallions adds to the airy look of this open work design. The collar is 22 1/2" in width at the neckline and 33" at the bottom edge. It is 6" long at the back. This adjusts its cling to the neckline by the inner most "string" which flexes allowing some gathering of the collar. We are unsure of the age of this, but it was found at auction with other collars (to be offered soon) and Victorian/Edwardian era clothing. We initially thought this was machine made, but a fellow shopper Fran advises us: "is definitely handmade. Tatted work like this would look machined if it was. In earlier years (up to the 1990's) a lot of tatters tied off each section of work. I think I saw evidence of this in the pictures. Now most tatters have learned how to work the thread ends back into the work for a cleaner finish." (thank you Fran). We found no holes and no stains. It has been hand laundered, air dried and pressed. Item 114196a Lot L12/1/6
