Punched Embroidered Lace

Very unusual and rare ecru Swiss embroidered lace, from the 1920s and 1930s. There is a certain similarity to Guipure lace but this lace is embroidered onto mousseline with the holes having been pre-punched and then embroidered. The very thin cotton thread is soft and the lace has not been sized. It is used almost flat to best display the design. Here a narrow silk ribbon has been threaded through the edge holes, slightly pulled and then the lace has been pressed into a curve.

Very limited supply.
