For those who love hand made lace.
Here's a little piece that am wondering if it is possibly handmade Alencon? And any ideas about the edging lace? Type? Machine or handmade? The triangle measures 10" across and 4.75" at the center point.
Thanks very much, Deborah
Any ideas on this piece anyone?
Thanking in advance.
Your piece is machine made, both parts. It actually looks like lace curtain machine lace. Below are links to some handmade Alencon, for comparison purposes.

Thanks as always. One day perhaps I'll understand!
Here is another piece I'm trying to identify. A quite large collar it has some age and looks a bit Duchesse-like but I really don't know. I think it's handmade though...?
Thanks as always.
