I don't remember where I got this, but it is beautiful. It is cuff-sized. Needlelace of some sort. Can anybody give me any information about this kind of work?

That's beautiful!  I'm thinking Venetian (not gros point), but I'm nowhere near an expert.

Thank you for posting those photos. It is a marvelous piece.  I also am not an expert on needle lace, and I agree that Venetian is the first thing that comes to mind. Not terribly old. Perhaps circa 1900.

I noticed the heavy gimp threads and bars rather than netting.  Those will narrow it down.  Looking at your penny for scale, that is TINY thread!

Thanks, y'all. Yes, I have the feeling it's in the range of 1910. Foreign-made probably - that is to say, not in the U.S. I tend to assume intricate lace of that era comes from China because the lacemaking industry in Europe had collapsed by then - but that's a complete guess, and I need to do some research. I wish I remembered where it came from. Probably a thrift shop.
