Silk Blonde de Caen bobbin lace flounce.  It has a repeating large flower and leaf motif at the hem with little sprigs dotted over the bobbin made ground.

The main piece is in excellent condition for its age - I do not think that this has ever been used.  It has an additional piece of the same patten tacked on the end.  This piece does have some damage to the ground and has been badly attached to the other piece.

Cream in colour.

Early 19th century.

The good, main section measures approx. 161cm x 12.5cm (63 1/4" x 5").  The smaller piece measures approx 17cm x 12.5cm (6 1/2" x 5").
