For those who love hand made lace.
This is an example of Schiffli or chemical machine lace. The pattern is embroidered onto fabric chemically treated so as to disintegrate after the pattern has been created. The end result looks rather fuzzy. This is a pattern of legs, and presumably the ball at the top is a picot.
