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.

Hi Brona, thank you so much for telling us about this. Such a superb piece of work. Although a very classical design, they are also somehow fitting for today's world. Do you know if much renovation was required?

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.

I spent a good portion of the last few nights drooling over the pictures of the LaceForStudy site Tania linked to... what a great resource!  I was interested in the use-related tags... i.e. ecclesiastical or modesty vest.  Browsing that way allowed me to see what kind of motifs were considered appropriate for each use.  For instance, regardless of the time period or manufacture technique, the ecclesiastical lace nearly all has scrolling motifs of leaves, but few or no flowers, and the motifs, when the lace has them, are abstract (crosses, initials, the host).  Flounces, on the other had, are festooned with everything pretty and feminine... especially flowers!

What a great site  I will look at it properly when I get home, and have a decent Internet link, but Wow! it looks like it is filled with information. Thanks for sharing with us/.

Magnifique Tania. J'avais effectivement manqué et l'Alençon et l'Argentan que j'associe aussi. Merci encore!

Beautiful Tania. I actually missed neither Alençon and Argentan that I associate. Thank you again!
