IDENTIFYING THE VARIETIES

Lorelei Halley's pinterest page:  https://www.pinterest.com/lynxlacelady/  You need a pinterest account to see my boards, but joining is free. I have a board for each type of lace.

Rosemary Shepherd's article: http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/pdf/research/classification.pdf

http://www.marlamallett.com/lace.htm 

Many photos, varieties of bobbin lace:   http://lynxlace.com   There are pages also for each major kind of lace.

A good way to learn to identify laces is to look at lots of photos of high quality antique laces.  http://lacenews.net/  has a section on "ebay alerts" with photos and descriptions of current offerings.  I have found the best way to see detail shots is to click on the photo, wait till the ebay page comes up, click on "enlarge".

http://www.laceforstudy.org.uk/  Many of the photos show very fine detail.  The site has a search function, so you can ask for photos of just Chantilly, for instance, or Duchesse.

LePompe 1559: You can now see both volumes, actually the ones Mrs Palliser had seen at Bibl. Arsenale. The order of the pages are different, but it is the pages we know from the published versions. They are online thanks to Bibliothèque nationale de France:

A site on Italian laces, not sure about historical reliability, possibly useful  http://www.fioretombolo.net/      It is oriented in a direction from our usual, and that itself is useful, for perspective.

MACHINE VERSUS HANDMADE

This one attempts to distinguish machine and hand made laces:

Jean Leader posted a link to this booklet on arachne today. I read the whole thing, and it is very well done. I have added it to the list above. I strongly recommend it.
