"Goldenberg 1904 says that "W. Felkin, in his history of lace manufacture, says that lace net was first made by machinery in 1768. Other authorities place the date as between 1758 and 1760." But you are right, Lorelei, that…"

"I received a note back from Rita: "Hi Nancy, I don't think it is netting or lacis. When I blow it up fairly large, I do not see knots, I see fibers twisting together, not knotted together." So we're back to my initial thought…"

"It's definitely not bobbin-lace -- I'd bet a thousand bucks on that. I just emailed Rita and sent her the link to the original post. I'm sure she will be able to say if it is or isn't filet netting.  Meanwhile, Karen, could…"

Nancy A. Neff commented on Administrator's group Identification-History
"I disagree about where the lace was started. It looks like bundles of threads going up the sides of the triangles away from the points, as if it was worked from the fabric edge down and the ends were bundled up and trimmed. At the very points, it…"

Nancy A. Neff commented on Administrator's group Identification-History
"Yes, of course it's not sprang. Sorry I threw that red herring in there. The knotting pattern suggests it's a kind of macrame, done with a pair or groups of warp threads from a fabric rather than cords. Someone who has the set of Weldon…"

"Could the net be sprang? I've read about it, and seen it in person once but didn't know enough to know what I was looking at. This seems to fit the descriptions I've read and what I remember seeing--a net made entirely from warp…"

"Again good photos. Here both the pull-thread work in the center and the bobbin-lace are both definitely handmade. Neither is particularly well done, but I think that Lorelei is right, that probably the bobbin-lace isn't helped by having been…"

Nancy A. Neff replied to Bobbie Eccles's discussion Lace Identification Help 6 in the group Identification-History
"Good photos! The mesh is machine made, and definitely not buratto. The needle-weaving portion looks so "messy" that I think it's machine-made also. Let's see what others think, however."
Jan 19
Nancy A. Neff replied to Bobbie Eccles's discussion Lace Identification Help 6 in the group Identification-History
"I agree that the mesh is machine-made for sure, but I don't think it's buratto because some of the threads in both directions appear twisted. Buratto is woven by twisting pairs of weft threads between single warp threads (so the warp…"

"Yes. It's odd that at least one of the others using this tape I've seen was also "held together" by crochet instead of embroidery, and I don't remember seeing crochet used otherwise. Maybe a leaflet with patterns using…"

"No, not Maltese--it doesn't have the very distinctive Maltese cross nor large areas of leaves. Again I'd say it was machine-made based on the extent to which the lines and edging look like sort of messy embroidery, but that may be the…"

"The closeup is a little out of focus, so I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is machine-made lace imitating lacis."

Nancy A. Neff replied to Bobbie Eccles's discussion Lace Identification Help 4 Figural in the group Identification-History
"Nice! The figures are needle-lace, and the edging etc. is lacis--needle-woven patterns on hand-made net."
Jan 18
Nancy A. Neff replied to Bobbie Eccles's discussion Lace Identification Help 3 Hankie in the group Identification-History
"This is tamboured lace--made by running lines of single crochet through net. I can't tell machine from handmade for sure, but based on the "messiness" of the stitching shown in the closeup, I'd guess this is machine-made."

New group on Facebook--for UFOs

Some of us have started a group on Facebook for those of us challenged by UFOs--UnFinished Objects. The group is the Craft UFOs Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1674307326156108/.  "Craft" in the name is our indication that craftsmen in all areas are welcome, although since it was started by lacemakers, there are mostly lacemakers in it right now. However, many lacemakers have already confessed to closets full of…

Nancy

Welcome.  Nice to see you here.  All the policies and software are the same as needlelacetalk, except that this group includes a wider array of laces (basically anything handmade).  Let me know if you have questions.
