Chantilly bobbin lace

I've been making lace since the mid-1980s, starting, of course, with Torchon bobbin lace. Within 2 years -- in fact, as soon as I found out how to make it! -- I was completely hooked on needle-lace. I love not only the process of making it, but the freedom of design as well.

Having collected vintage & antique handmade lace since childhood, I now have a broad collection that includes many high-quality pieces, but is largely made up of representative & study pieces. It was one particular piece, a tiny 1860s collar of superfine Point de Gaze lace, badly ripped, that started me on the adventure of making my own lace by hand. Nearly 30 years later, the rip is still not repaired. :-D

I took the liberty of making some small changes to the names and tags you gave to the group of photos you just uploaded today.  I did that to increase the likelihood that search engines can find your photos.  Over time I've learned what search engines read and what they ignore.  Words that a searcher is likely to use need to come first in a phrase, or photo name.  And there is a grammar that tags use.  If you want a phrase rather than a word as the tag, the phrase needs to be surrounded by quotation marks.  And the individual tags need to be separated by commas.

Beth, I understand your thinking.  It seems, though, that weighing the facts that charring stops certain chemical reactions and the the threads are very brittle, the decision to leave the fragments on the mat would be my choice, too. They felt the fabric would be destroyed by trying to remove it.  They do not mention  acid-free, but that may be a chemical reaction they do not have to worry about now. I have seen copies of the original photos taken and don't see any real difference today.

I am more concerned with the Chancay gauze sitting there in an embroidery hoop.  Wouldn't you think the wood and pressure would tend to cause the visible part  to eventually break away from the whole piece?  Perhaps stitching it to a foil and cotton covered canvas, the size of the hoop, and then carefully folding the rest back and securing behind it would isolate it from wood and relieve the pressure.
