For those who love hand made lace.
Albums: Identification-photos, machine-lace
This lace actually could have been made by hand, but I don't think it was. The tallies have more than 2 pairs in them. I count 6 passives for each. But if I count the braids entering and leaving, there should be 4 pairs or 8 threads per tally. I have seen some very old Genoese bobbin laces at the Art Institute of Chicago which have more than 4 threads in them. But this doesn't happen in modern laces. I have seen some French Cluny type laces which have more than 2 pairs, but those are quite rare, anad would not have such a pedestrian design as this lace. Also the half stitch area between the tallies has vertical straight threads, instead of horizontal straight threads. This can be achieved by hand if you weave in the s'Gravenmoerse manner. But again, the design is wrong for that.
