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/.

Tania - Thank you. I have added it to the ONLINE RESOURCES page in our IDENTIFICATION-HISTORY group.

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!

Christiane, there are also articles devoted to Alencon lace. Did you find them?

Just in case here is the link:

You will also find split by categories and SEARCH field. So, you can type any related word 'alencon' or 'argentan' etc.

As far as I understand the site includes about 2000 articles. The question is how to find the necessary one. ))) 

Happy Holidays!

Je ne connaissais pas ce site. À cause de ces quelques similarités avec la dentelle d’Alençon, les images qui s’y trouvent concernant le Point de gaze sont vraiment inspirantes, d’autant plus qu’un rapport de dimension y est indiqué et peut être très utile. Merci pour le lien et Joyeuses Fêtes.

I did not know this site. Because of these similarities with Alencon lace, those images on Point de Gaze are truly inspiring, especially as a dimension ratio down there and can be very useful. Thank you for the link and Happy Holidays.

Not sure if this website was already mentioned at NLT, nevertheless, I'd like to share.

Digital Lace Collection:

Some description of antique needlelace and bobbin lace. Different styles and periods. There are also close ups.

Those are wonderful photos. Thanks for telling us about them.

Post from a lady, who visited Fine Arts Museum , Normandy. A lot of pictures. There are pictures that show all the way through the production process, step by step. It can be interesting for the beginners.

There looks to be a natural simplicity about AA, totally deceptive of course. I too found the oak leaf cluster very inspiring.
