This fine antique bobbin lace table set, seemingly unused, dates fom apx. the late Victorian to the Edwardian era, c. 1900 - 1920.


The handmade bobbin lace, which we believe is Torchon, appears to be made from very fine linen thread, so it is beautifully light, open and very elegant.  The color is white, but not glaringly so, rather a softer, very slight creamy shade.  The pattern is quite complex, executed with very fine tread and a variety of design elements that are not commonly seen in this type of hand work, which is often a much simpler motif, suggesting the lace maker was quite experienced and very talented.  Please look closely at the third image.


The six attractive oval mats were likely intended as a breakfast or dessert set, however today they could be used to enhance virtually any dining or party function.


The set remains in amazingly excellent antique estate condition, actually appearing in unused, unlaundered, original condition.  Upon close inspection we find one tiny thread, on one mat, that appears to have come loose, otherwise the set appears, we believe, very much as it did when made many, many years ago. Obviously stored with care, the mats remain clean and well pressed, ready to be used and enjoyed for years to come.
