Exquisite handmade flounce of Brussels mixed lace with point de gaze needlelace roses amongst floral sprays and an undulating ribbon and beautiful swags of acanthus leaves at the hem. The flounce appears to be complete; one end has been finished off by the lace maker and the other end has space at the edge; clearly indicating the beginning of a border.

Provenance - this piece previously belonged to Lady Wantage.

Condition - there are a few areas of damage and a number of repairs.

Mid to late 19th century.

Cream in colour with a few faint age spots - I have not laundered this piece.


Measures approx. 233cm x 47cm (91 1/2" x 18 1/2").
