Material:  Natural Fiber / Cotton
Age:  1900 - 20s
Color:  Ivory, blonde
Size:  Total Length ~ 100 inches = apx. 2.77 yards
         Width ~ apx. 8 & 3/4 inches = 8.75 inches
Quantity:  1 continuous length

A wonderful long length of fine antique or earlier vintage Pusher mills ivory lace, made in France and dating to the first quarter - half of the 20th century.  Judging by the style of the tag, as well handwriting present, (see last image)  we estimate apx.  1900 - 1920s.

The French lace features a very attractive design inspired by French Chantilly Blonde de Caen bobbin lace, with a delicate cordonnet outlined fancy ribbon and floral motif, including a variety of fillings on a very fine mesh reseau tulle ground.  It is very soft, light and diaphanous, with areas of more dense flower pattern combined with somewhat more open areas featuring a lighter pattern motif of floral sprays, ribbons and points d esprit, typical of Blonde de Caen.  The upper edge features a narrow entredeux, while the bottom edge is nicely finished with pretty scallops.  Unfinished sides/ends.

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 fairly  nice, unused antique estate condition, however it is not absolutely perfect.  It is clean, with only a very slight musty storage smell.  We noted only apx. three tiny breaks in the upper net body;  one apx. 1/8 of an inch and the other two smaller, apx. sharp pencil point size. Each quite minor and located relatively close together, and within a few inches of one unfinished side/end.   More significantly, however are five small openings, all located within a half inch of the bottom scallop edge and spaced about 16-18 inches apart along this bottom section.  Three of the openings measure apx. 1/2 inch in size, and two are smaller;  all repairable with a few stitches, however this may not render the repair completely invisible, but a gathered application, such as a flounce, would certainly remedy.  We did not initially notice this issue, and subsequently overlooked photographing, so please read description carefully and advise if I can provide any additional information.  Otherwise the lace appears strong and stable, with no other noted snags, tears, weakness, or distress.

Certainly a nice and harder to find wider example of antique or 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.

NOTE:  Photographed in the images above on a red silk background, to better show color and detail.
