Excellent Very Wide Example Antique Leavers Valenciennes Bobbin Lace, Flounce - Yardage

Material:  Natural Fiber ~ Linen / Cotton
Color:  Ivory, blonde
Size:  Length ~  3.27 Yards = 118 inches
Width:  12 inches & 10 & 1/2 inches ~ see description below
Quantity:  1 continuous length, with two seams

A very superior antique Leavers mill example, inspired by French Valenciennes bobbin lace and likely dating from the turn of the century to the Edwardian era.
The lace features a beautiful floral and foliate motif, with a variety of fillings, on a fine dotted esprit mesh tulle ground.
It is very soft.  A burn test confirmed a natural fiber, believed to be cotton or linen.
This lace is one long, wide length, however there are two seams at apx. 25 inches from each end.  The middle section measures apx. 68 inches long.  This middle section is 12 inches wide and is finished with what I will call a braided header, for lack of a better description.
The two 25 inch lengths, attached via nice hand done seams to both sides of the longer 68 inch center piece, have been cut at the top, as shown in the last image, subsequently they are apx. 1 & 1/2 inches narrower in width than the middle piece, measuring apx. 10 & ½ inches and do not have the top braided header.
This lace flounce yardage is in extremely nice antique estate condition.
It was nicely hand seamed with attention to pattern and the well matched scalloped lower edge furthers the visual impression of one long continuous piece.
After carefully examining the lace and header I do not believe it was ever used/attached to anything and I find no holes, snags, tears, breaks, etc. to the lace.  Intermittently, every eight inches or so,  I note some tiny holes to the header, possibly from where it was attached to a card / original packaging.
There are a few very small and very pale age/storage related specks that would certainly disappear with a light soak.
The lace is strong and stable and remains extremely soft and very supple.
An extremely nice and hard to find wide width and long length of unused very fine antique blonde lace yardage.
Photographed in the images above on a red silk background, to better show color and detail.  On my monitor the light ivory color/shade is best depicted in the first two images.
