A really outstanding example of unused antique Leavers mill alencon lace, inspired by French Alencon needlelace, but done in bobbin lace style and likely dating from the Edwardian era to the 1920's.
This lace yardage features a very fancy, dense, cordonnet outlined floral motif with a variety of fillings, on a very fine hexagonal mesh tulle ground.
We do not often find antique/vintage alencon with such an ornate, dense pattern, it is usually more open and airy if you will, nor do we regularly find it in a wider width, such as this attractive piece.
It is also well constructed.  The top edge of lace is straight and finished with what I will call a tiny braided header, for lack of a better description.  The bottom edge is scalloped, with dainty picot detail.
This lace is in extremely nice antique estate condition.   I see no evidence that it has ever been used;  it is free of  holes, snags, tears, breaks, weakness, distress, stains, spots, etc.  The lace remains strong, stable and very soft and supple.
I just noticed that the ends have been turned under and carefully hand stitched, which I had not previously noted, as if this piece was being prepared for some specific finish - trim purpose.  If you prefer the ends raw, simple remove the single thread.
Certainly a nice and hard to find wider length of unused very fine, antique alencon lace yardage.
Photographed in the images above on a red silk background, to better show color and detail.  On my monitor, color is best represented in the four close up views, rather than the first and last overall images, which appear slightly more yellow than actual soft cream.
