Devon, I hope to have your input on possible dates for the recent lace photos that Margaret Ruhland posted.  I think some of those gros point may be very old, but some may be 19th century.  But which are which?

I slightly renamed some of your photos to clarify which ones are the same piece, and to make them more visible to search engines. Search engines appear to find photos 2 ways: by the name of the file, or if the key word appears on a page the search engine takes any photo which is on the same page.

Hi Devon
I love what you've put up on this website. It doesn't matter that you can't find the teachers, if tecky books make sense, you can be your own teacher. Its my personal opinion that thanks to digital photography we can probably work out ways to decipher antique work now better than ever before, even where there has been a break in the tradition.
kind regards
beth lea :)
P.S. I'm with you on the florals too.

I took the liberty of adding tags to some of your photos. I hope you don't mind. I wanted to be able to call up groups of similar things, especially antique laces and gros point.
