Hand crocheted lace collar, made with ecru cotton thread. The inner portion is 17" and the outer edge measures about 40". The collar is 5" wide. It has a tie with two 1/2" balls on 9" cords. It will fit an older girl or small to average adult.
So many hours went into the making of this collar! It is in excellent condition overall, but has some brown discoloration on one side. The collar has not been laundered. It was blocked and lightly starched when it was made and shows no signs of wear.
If you wish to wear, rather than display this piece, wash gently and dry flat. Starch is optional. This collar dates from the 1920's - 1930's.
