Kimberly Davis commented on Lorelei Halley Administrator's group Early Bobbin Lace
"Yes, it is a fantastic book!  It is in Swedish, but has a lot of pictures and a small synopsis in English.  This was Lena's thesis/dissertation.  Kim"

"I really meant the two lacemakers chose to make the pattern differently - one is the reverse of the other - I am assuming we are seeing the fronts of both pieces.  The design does give one the feeling that it is a woman and her reflection, but…"

"I really like the edge design on Devon's example. And also Kim's piece. It also occurred to me that the 2nd woman is a mirror image, perhaps a woman and her reflection on water."

"Hi Kim, Would you be able to post an overall in a new post? What a fun piece! Any figural is my favorite. I especially love the different treatments of joins in bobbin lace...whether it's a continuously made piece or a joined piece.  Laura…"

"Kim, you are absolutely correct, it is bobbin lace. Structure is that of a part lace. I really like the raised tallies on various places."

Fun piece of bobbin lace

I recently got an inquiry through our museum email regarding this piece of lace.  The woman, who gave permission for me to share these photos, got this piece 40-50 years ago as an "old" piece  of lace. She first sent me a low resolution photo.  I suspected it was machined lace as pieces of this nature which I see are more often than not machined compilations of motifs from varying types of lace.  I asked for larger close ups so that I could see the threads.I then received this a second photo,…See More
