Hello, Here's a little piece that am wondering if it is possibly handmade Alencon? And any ideas about the edging lace? Type? Machine or handmade? The triangle measures 10" across and 4.75" at the…Continue

"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…"

"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…"

"Thanks so much Nancy - that's very helpful. I'll keep researching to see what the Honiton-ish one might be and will try to get  a better pic of the black lace tomorrow (late here now). Thanks again.  Best, Deborah"

"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

Kimberly Davis replied to deborah greenfield's discussion Very old lace - date ideas anyone?? in the group Identification-History
"It could be 17th, but it could also easily be 18th or 19th.  That lace was made for a very long time with the styles changing very little. Kim"

"Thank you. Very interesting. Gilian Dye said that she thinks the lace I've posted to be 17th rather than 16th. That seems to be the general concensus. "

"Hello Kim,  Gil Dye also seems to think it would be 17th rather than 16th C. Hard to say the age of the tunic but 17th would fit there as well. Do you have any online reference for lace from this period? Thanks much. Deborah"

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.
