This is tamboured lace--made by running lines of single crochet through net. I can't tell machine from handmade for sure, but based on the "messiness" of the stitching shown in the closeup, I'd guess this is machine-made.

Yes, and given the harp motif, probably Limerick lace.

Thank you

If you want examples of Limmerick lace, see

I agree.

I would class it as Tamboured lace, as it seems to have been crocheted, not needle stitched.   Needle stitched or "woven" would indicate what I know as Limerick Lace, but the crocheted version I know as Tamboured lace.

Certainly of Irish heritage, due to the design. A piece to treasure, anyway! - whatever it is called!!!
