"As far as what constitutes lace, my own personal view is "string and a hole!""

Administrator replied to Lanni Liana's discussion help in the group Identification-History
"There are different definitions of lace. Some people regard only bobbin and needle lace as true laces. Personally I am willing to regard crochet as lace, when worked on a fine scale, particularly Irish crochet.  Those long loops are unusual. I…"

"Thank you for your answers. But isin't crochet a type of lace?  I would think that this sort of crochet work could come from an eastern country. Could anyone confirm this? Infact, I have never seen in Italian crochet works the…"

"It appears to be primarily crochet, with those woven cloth inserts in the shape of flowers.   The stacks of long stitches arranged in geometric blocks are probably treble crochet, or something like it. The ground appears to be chains. (Red…"

Lanni Liana replied to Lanni Liana's discussion Which elements make me understand that this lace is machine made? in the group Identification-History
"Thanks for the answers and sorry for the delay. An upholsterer bought  this lace at a wholesale company for 1 euro x mt.. I immediately thought that it could only be done by machine but I could not find the differences between machine-made…"

Administrator replied to Lanni Liana's discussion Which elements make me understand that this lace is machine made? in the group Identification-History
"I agree with Jo. This could very well have been handmade. There is nothing in it that can't be done by hand. Most lacemakers would not choose such a fluffy thread, but one often finds that machine made laces do. I don't know why, but am…"

Jo Edkins replied to Lanni Liana's discussion Which elements make me understand that this lace is machine made? in the group Identification-History
"Well, it might not be, of course! I could make this by hand... But I agree - it looks like machine-made. First, you are perfectly entitled to have a 'feel' about it. It looks too regular and even, and so on. As to the technique - one place…"

Administrator replied to Lanni Liana's discussion Corner in bobbin laces in the group Identification-History
"Turned corners in bobbin lace only began in the mid 1800s. According to Anne Buck THOMAS LESTER, HIS LACE AND THE EAST MIDLANDS INDUSTRY 1820-1905, there are pattern drafts from 1840s for either Bucks point or Lester Bedfordshire dating from as…"

Helen Bell replied to Lanni Liana's discussion Corner in bobbin laces in the group Identification-History
"Great question! :-) No real definitive answer though.  It's widely held that it's a 'modern' invention, but there were corners in lace in the mid-late mid 1800's, as you see them in some of Lester's fabulous Beds…"

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group, as it fits well with your interests.  Its opening page has lists of resources, both books and online. Take some time to explore. If you have any questions about the site, contact me and I'll try to help.  If you have other laces that you want identified, post a photo in the IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group, in a comment, or start a DISCUSSION in that group. Several of us will answer.
