A pair of black silk Honiton guipure lappets with rounded ends. It has a busy design of roses and foliage with leadwork fillings and needle made bars. The top ends are cut on a slant, and are unfinished so these might have been joined together originally.


This is a rare pair of lappets as very little black Honiton was made, and silk was used as the dyes available at the time were not suitable for cotton.


Condition is fairly good...there is quite a bit of wear to this piece, and several repairs.


19th century.


Black in colour.

 

Largest piece measures approx. 62cm (24.5") by 10cm (4") at its widest points.


Price - £100.00
