The historic Ipswich lace samples we have from Ipswich MA from 1789-1790 use whole stitch CTCT kat stitch as the ground. So, I am assuming that was the normal way of making that ground at that place and time with minimal use of pins. The prickings do show pins being used in the kat stitch ground.  However, there are a number of other Ipswich-looking laces in Museums in the US that has a different kat stitch ground, like the one in the Smithsonian https://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/object-groups/lace-colle...  TE.H39069 where it looks like the kat stitch was made with CT pin CT or more likely TC pin TC, and also large pinholes in the vertical intersections. This would have taken more time and pins.  From a distance, it looks like honeycomb stitches but there is only one twist (and cross).  

Any suggestions/ideas of when/where this type of ground might have been made?

I'm going to take a closer look at those MoMu pieces and see if I can tell on those.

Zoomed in on this--does it have the same almost-honeycomb features?

I feel like it's similar? But I'm not quite there with the details.

Yes, it is the same, and several others are, too.

Yes, it is the same, and many of the other Museum pieces are, too.
