A wonderful long, very wide length of gossamer fine unused, cream/blonde antique Leavers mill lace, inspired by French Valenciennes bobbin lace.
Photographed in the images above on a red silk background, to better show color and detail.
The lace features an interesting and rather unusual large, airy, multi-motif floral and foliate pattern, on a very fine tulle mesh ground.  The floral motif has a slight sheen and feels very silky and smooth, whereas the net, while extremely fine, does not tactilely have the same silky feel, leading me to believe that the lace is likely a combination of natural fibers, possibly linen and silk.
The top edge of lace is straight and finished with what I will call a tiny header, for lack of a better description.  Bottom is scalloped, with dainty picot edge detail.  See 7th image for a close up.
This lace flounce yardage is in extremely nice antique estate condition.   It has never been used and other than a few very tiny, light,  diffused storage/age related specks that would surely disappear with a light soak,  I see no stains, spots or similar issues.  I noted only two small tears/breaks to the lace;  located within a few inches of each other, almost directly above/below, very near one end  (apx. six- seven inches from end) and no other breaks, snags, etc.
When I acquired the lace it was rolled and I believe it had been stored that way for many years, subsequently there are no weak or distressed areas on fold lines, etc.
A burn test shows the lace is a natural fiber, likely linen/cotton, with silk.   It appears strong and stable and remains extremely soft and supple.
An extremely nice and hard to find long length of unused very fine, diaphanous antique blonde Leavers Valenciennes lace yardage.  More rare to find in wide widths, such as this example.
