Thanks for telling us about this piece. It is Magnificent. I had heard about it very vaguely, so to see the actual piece - Wow!!

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.

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!
