"Hello experts, Once again, I offer up an interesting (I think) piece for your scrutiny. Found in the UK, it's 6.5" wide. Is it some sort of Mechlin? 18th C, 19th C? I've looked at masses of photos on Lorelei and other's pinterest…"

"Thank you both. That's all fascinating. Yes, looking under a magnifying glass and holding the piece up to the light there are some thickened areas but not always. In most cases it looks like the braid is threaded once through the edge of the…"

"Nancy, I think your example is better than most "'slugs n snails". Here are some of mine. But you are right, Deborah's piece  is unusually poor in design, even for "slugs n snails". I can't really call it tape…"

"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…"

Lorelei Halley Administrator replied to deborah greenfield's discussion two old laces - handmade perhaps?
"The lace you have named as "Honiton" is Honiton, I think. It is from the years around 1900. A type called "slugs and snails". Some Honiton of that time period was made with poorly defined patterns and rather sloppy workmanship…"

"I wouldn't call the second piece, the dress front, "Honiton": the motifs are not typical, including how the cloth-stitch areas are made, nor are the fillings. However, I don't know what to call it--I don't think I've…"

2 antique laces possibly handmade??

Hello,Here are photos of an old silk black lace that I haven't come across before. I thought initially it was machine but looking at the close up I wonder if it might be handmade..?? Any thoughts anyone and any ideas of lace type? Then there's an antique Honiton (I think) collar. To me even the tape itself looks handmade but I don't have the eye or knowledge  you do. Thanking you very much, DeborahPS Sorry that I posted this by mistake on the general discussion board and couldn't figure out how…See More

I've always loved old textiles, ever since running around flea markets in London as a kid. Currently living in France, I've been able to pick up quite a nice little collection of laces and textiles and am trying now to learn more about them.

Hi Deborah,  Yes, sorry, I left a long comment and then immediately deleted it because I was wrong about one of the fillings and wanted to think more about it. I will go and leave a revised version since I'm not so sure it's necessarily Milanese. Sorry to be a tease--I didn't realize the notification would go out immediately.  --Nancy
