A pretty example of unused early vintage Pusher mill alencon lace, inspired by Belgian and Swiss bobbin laces.
A paper tag was affixed to the lace via a metal staple, (see last image) which I carefully removed so it would not snag and damage the yardage.  This tag, from
The Lace Net Import Co, notes the company details about the lace, such as color and pattern number, etc., but also included a patent number, which dates the lace to apx. 1932.
Since the lace was imported by this company and based on style, design and quality, I think it quite possibly originated in France.
This wide lace flounce yardage is a creamy off white color that I feel is well represented in the images above.  It features a very fancy, dense, cordonnet outlined floral design, accented with charming bows, wreaths and swags on a fine mesh reseau tulle ground.  The lace is light and airy, like French or Belgium made Chantilly and well constructed, with nicely finished top and bottom edges.  The top edge featuring a narrow entredeux and the bottom a very attractive scalloped design.
The lace is in extremely nice unused vintage estate condition.  I examined the entire yardage and while  I may have missed something minuscule, I really don’t think I did, noting only one tiny pin head size break in the net and no other holes, snags, tears, breaks, weakness, distress, stains, spots, etc.  The lace remains strong, stable and certainly very useable.
NOTE:  This lace is in two pieces; one piece measures apx. 3.88 yards in length and the second measures apx, 7.66 yards; both with unfinished sides/ends.  For storage purposes (to avoid oxidation and better preserve the excellent condition of the lace) I removed the yardage from the original display card/board shown above and gently rolled it, however I will include the card when sold.

Certainly a nice and harder to find wider example of unused early vintage 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.
