2a ~ Fine Wide Antique Fancy French Floral Alencon Lace Yardage

Material:  Natural Fiber / Cotton
Age:  1910 - 20s
Color:  Light coffee au lait / pale mocha
Size:  Length ~ 114 inches = 3.16 yards
         Width ~ 12 inches
Quantity:  2 pieces, totaling a combined 3.16 yards in length

A pretty example of unused antique or early vintage French Pusher mill alencon lace, inspired by Alencon needlelace and likely dating from the 1910 Edwardian era, to the 1920's Flapper period.  I previously had this exact lace with a Made In France tag still attached, so I am confident as to origin.

This wide lace yardage features a very fancy, dense, cordonnet outlined floral design with flowing leaves reminiscent of Duchesse and square tallies which are a Lille trademark, all on a very fine mesh reseau tulle ground.

The lace is well constructed, with a nicely finished narrow top entredeux and straight bottom edge.
It is in extremely nice unused antique estate condition,  free of  holes, snags, tears, breaks, weakness, distress, stains, spots, etc.  The lace remains strong, stable and very soft and supple.

NOTE:  This lace is in two pieces; one piece measures 2 yards in length, with straight, unfinished sides/ends.  The second piece measures 1.16 yards in length, with unfinished sides/ends that are not straight, but rather cut with, or around the floral pattern design of the lace.  I measured this piece at the shortest possible length, as if it was cut off straight, so there is actually more yardage here, since the ends were cut to accommodate the floral design, as described above.  Top and bottom edges are nicely finished on both lengths, as shown in the last two images.

Certainly a nice and harder to find wider example of unused antique or early vintage alencon lace yardage that can be used in numerous applications, such as clothing, lingerie, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing & accessories, pillows, interior design, soft furnishings, window treatments, restorations and other projects requiring authentic period trims.   Photographed in the images above on a red silk background, to better show color and detail.
