Yes those litttle 3 petal flowers near the center of the piece are Cantu style flowers.  But the rest doesn't fit with Cantu.

Monica,

The flowers are Cantu - take a look at Betty Manfree's site to see more

Another possibility is Idrija. Of course in Idrija pure tape lace dominates, but they are also doing some part laces with individual motifs. But that is a wild guess on my part, based on similarities of style. I don't recognize the pattern.

There is a Slovenian lace group on facebook. I have asked there. Will report back.

This is a beautiful pattern.  I think it is an Italian lace, possibly Cantu.  It has features that are found in Rococo lace - the three petal flowers - but this has other flowers which are not found in Rococo and I think I have seen them in an Italian pattern book

Does anyone know where this pattern comes from?  I would love your help please!

I'm not sure if this is bloomwork or duchesse.  The ground suggests bloomwork, but the flower motifs are more complex than what usually occurs in bloomwork.  But it is in wild color:

This one is definitely bloomwork, from Rombach de Kievid
