maybe. At least it is the same period, I think...
Brona - Thanks for the link. Very interesting curtains. The workmanship and style seems somewhat similar to a few photos on my website. I wonder if they are from a similar source.
restorers said that the curtains are in very good conditions, only small repairs (relatively) were needed. These curains are well stored in the depository - in the Residence there are just a copie.

one more source on the lace
http://www.marianiforos.com/lacemain.html - this is for lace. no closeups. site is updated pretty often, I could hardly describe its content in words. Really gorgeous.
for those who is interested in linen or clothing etc. - home page is http://www.marianiforos.com/
That laceforstudy site is very good. It has photos of really old laces, before 1700, and lots of good photos of more recent 19th c laces. Too many laces found on other sites have really bad photos where you can't see the individual threads. Without that kind of detail it is impossible to see how the lace was made.
