Hand worked needlerun veil. It has an unusual edge treatment where the needlerun stitches are at a 90 degree angle to the edge, and the net is cut where they stop. It is quite an effective method as the net cannot fray too much! The flower and bud motifs are heavily stylized and bold in design, and border each side of the the veil, with an extra spray in two of the corners, and little florets dotted all over.  An interesting piece for the collector.

Condition is very good for its age, but there are a few small holes in the net.

Early 19th Century.

White in colour with a few faint marks from age.

Measures approx. 91cm x 86cm (36" x 34").

Price - £180.00
