A wonderful long length of gossamer fine early vintage Raschell mills ivory lace, dating to the first half of the 20th century, c. 1940s.

The lace features a lovely design inspired by French Chantilly bobbin lace, with a cordonnet outlined fancy floral motif and a variety of fillings, on a very fine mesh reseau tulle ground.  The bottom edge is nicely finished with pretty scallops.

It is very soft, light, airy and diaphanous, actually looking and feeling much like silk, which we believe it is, but suppose it could possibly be an extremely fine cotton.  Since it is already seamed together, like a flounce, there is no raw edge for me to do a burn test.

This wide lace yardage is a creamy off white, or light ivory in color that I feel is well represented in the images above.

The lace is in extremely nice vintage estate condition.  It is clean, with only a very slight musty storage smell and the barest hint of subtle darkening to the ivory hue on the edge of a flower in one or two tiny areas, less than an inch in size; only detectable if examined very closely and carefully and certainly easily resolvable with a gentle soak.  We noted only two tiny breaks in the net body;  one sharp pencil point size and one just slightly larger, but still extremely small, maybe 1/8 of an inch.  There are also several small breaks in the very top entredeux edge, but only two actually intrude into the body of the lace and that is only minimally, affecting one or two tiny brides in the net; less than apx. 1/8 of an inch.  Otherwise we noted no snags, tears, weakness, or distress.

NOTE:  This length of lace has one very well executed side seam, so the lace forms a circle, as if intended for a dress or skirt flounce.  If this is not desirable it can simply be opened at the seam.  The first image shows a single layer of the lace and the last image shows it doubled.

Certainly a nice and harder to find wider example of earlier 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.
