"I agree with Helen. This is a Duchesse bobbin lace, of a kind often called "Brussels Duchesse", meaning that it has needle lace elements added. This kind dates from the last half of the 19th century, and into the early 20th C. The pink…"

"Wow!  Spectacular collar :-) Looks like a mixed lace - Brussels duchesse, with needlelace details in the big ovals.  The needle lace parts would be worked by 1 or more workers.  Someone probably worked the little buttonhole rings,…"

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. We do have one for IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY, which would fit well with your interests. It opening page has links to good online information. (Much of what is online is useless. But I found the good stuff.)

I don't know what your knowledge level is, but beginner information might start here.

If you have any questions about this site, contact me and I'll try to help.
