Absolutely marvelous all original antique 19th century victorian period Maltese Lace collar or capelet…This exquisite piece is completely made by hand with pure silk threads in beautiful gilded beige shade. Texture is extremely soft to the touch.
Remarkable hand work full of meticulous motifs: the neckline seems to have lot of wheat ears, a lot of circle group of flowers or clovers, the bottom has the largest groups of flowers and the scalloped hemline has maltese crosses. This piece measures 21” (53 cm) length along the neckline, 12” (30 cm) from the neckline edge to the hemline and 68 inches (172 cm) along the scalloped hemline.
Very good condition. Just a tiny area slightly browned due to age. Please see details in the pictures. Precious museum quality piece…Rare find! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question. Thanks for visiting my shop!
