"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…"

"Nice! The figures are needle-lace, and the edging etc. is lacis--needle-woven patterns on hand-made net."

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."

Nancy A. Neff replied to Bobbie Eccles's discussion Lace Identification Help in the group Identification-History
"Hi Bobbie, This is a tape lace, made of machine-made tape curling around in a pattern held together, in this case, by crochet. The tape may be hard to see as a tape--it comprises the  ovals connected by thick bars at the ends of each oval.…"

"Rather than be done by sewings between braids parallel to the footside, couldn't the ground have been done in diagonals from the footside like point-ground or Val ground, with an extra cross at the intersections? Two two-pair braids come…"

"BTW, you asked it's use. I can't be absolutely sure because of the lack of dimensions, but I think it's the right size, and it's certainly the right shape and finished correctly at the sides, to be a bonnet veil. It is a lovely…"

"Lorelei, If that's Honiton, then it's hardly even "slugs and snails". This is an example of that style IMO, showing a clear 'snail': https://www.pinterest.com/pin/544794886163238756/ I admit, however, that I don't…"

New group on Facebook--for UFOs

Some of us have started a group on Facebook for those of us challenged by UFOs--UnFinished Objects.

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.
