Hi friends. I am visiting Bruges at the moment and wondered if you could advise on what to see and do for the lace lover, especially antique lace? We'll be here for another five days. Thank you!

"http://www.lynxlace.com/images/lace198.jpg This is what your beautiful piece of lace reminds me of, which is a kind of Tape lace. The other part done on the fine netting looks to be some kind of needle lace."

I now see i have taken up quite alot of your page, i am so sorry! I was so exited that i could figure out what your unidentified piece of lace was, I am a big fan of Princess lace and could just see it starring me in the face and the more i looked the more Princess pieces i could see bit by bit, they used nearly every kind but in really small pieces, eg leaves. After each time i posted to you i would see another type of Princess lace thats why the multiple comments. Hope it helped!
