"I think you ought to write down now, what you DO know, and put it with the piece. Each generation assumes that their knowledge will last! Write the name of your great grandmother, and her dates if you know them, plus any other information, and her…"

"Thank you so much! Yes, it is frustrating not to have the history. I really have no idea what part of my great grandmother's life it came from. But my family always has been a disorganized crew! No doubt moths have been frequent players in its…"

"What a lovely piece, with such unusual framing.  Yes, it is machine made lace with hand embroidery on top.  It is sad to have lost the history, but it is still a treasure to enjoy.  "

"Someone with more knowledge than I have will probably chime in....  it looks like machine netting to me and some of the lace bits look machine made. The little ribbon flowers appear to be appliqued on it.  It is a mixed technique piece. I…"

"The one photo that uploaded was off center so that part of it had nothing in it.   Try to take a photo of the whole thing from a distance, then do a close up. It looks like embroidery on netting from what little I can see."

Bridal veil ?

Right. Now, let me confess straight off that I know very little about lace. I am new here, and I am eager to learn.I am attaching photos of a piece that was preserved in this frame. It belonged to my great grandmother, but I don't know whether it came from her bridal veil, or what.Could anyone here date this for me? The frame is metal and is covered with a lovely golden woven material. There is glass on both sides.I just love this and would so like to know more about it.Thanks.See More

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 HISTORY-IDENTIFICATION group, as it fits well with your interests. You might also find my pinterest boards useful, since I have them sorted out by structural type of lace.
