"Since it is appliqued onto a large piece of net, presumably machine made net, that would place it no earlier than 1820 or so. There do not appear to be any stripes in the net (which might mean hand made), and the piece of net is quite large. While…"

"Thanks Adminitrator and Helen. At what period does it belong and what was its use?"

"There is nothing that absolutely identifies it as either Duchesse or Honiton. But on the whole I has more Honiton features. The red lines show where cuicumber tallies make a vein in a leaf. Honiton does this often. Also there are lots of spaces with…"

"It's a sectional lace, and I can't tell if it's Honiton or a Brussels Duchesse.  It's got the lovely rib and roll work, and not the 'slubs and slugs' of Honiton, but that doesn't mean it's not…"

"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…"

"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…"

"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…"

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.
