~FRENCH VINTAGE LINENS AND ANTIQUES~

Where You Will Find Beautiful & Unusual Vintage Linens & Apparel and Antiques from France

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Over the years I have collected all sorts of vintage and antique French needlework. Recently while going through some boxes in my workroom I gathered together this group of handmade edgings or laces in a variety of techniques and in various lengths but they are all over 2 yards long.
These laces are all hand worked of cotton and they are all in fine vintage condition, all clean and stain free. You may find a tiny break here and there in a few pieces but I have inspected each piece and there is absolutely no serious flaw in any of these pieces of vintage hand made French lace and edging.

I would like to point out that all these pieces represent untold hours of patient hand work by long-ago artisans. If one estimates that a maker could work an inch ( or even 2 inches!) in one hour you can see that these pieces represent an enormous amount of concentrated effort and patient dedication.



Please see individual descriptions below...the number of each piece is found on the 2nd Photo.

#1 Crocheted lace edging in a scalloped pattern, excellent vintage condition, clean and white with no stains. 3 inches wide and 96 inches (2 yrds 24 inches) long. $25.00

#2 Exceptionally long knitted edging with points. An amazing amount of work is represented by this piece. From top edge to point measures 5 1/2 inches and this piece measures 220 inches long which is just over 6 yards. Clean and white, no stains. $75.00

#3 A very fine length of 'dentelle de Puy' which is a type of bobbin lace. This lace is made with infinite patience by weaving slender bobbins wound with thread through an intricate pattern formed by pins stuck into a paper pattern. Very few artisans continue this remarkable craft but efforts are being made to teach a new generation here in France. This lace is 2 inches wide and 93 inches long ( 2yds and 21 inches) Superb condition: $50.00

#4 A very pretty lacy crocheted edging. This piece is 4 1/2 inches from the top edge to the point and it measures 100 inches long (2yds 28 inches) . Excellent condition with one small break that could be easily repaired. Clean and white $35.00

# 5a and #5b Tatted lace. This lace making techique uses a little wood shuttle wound with thread and nimble finger work. Again a dying art as this too is such a demanding and difficult technique to master. I have 2 lengths of this tatted lace edging in a slightly 'off-white' shade. They are 2 inches wide and one is 110 inches in length and the other is 104 inches. $50.00 each

#6 Another length of 'dentelle de Puy' in a more 'open' pattern. Clean and white. 3 and1/2 inches wide and 88 inches long (2 yds and 16 inches) $25.00

#7 Also 'dentelle de Puy' in a 'denser' pattern than the one just above. This lace is in a pale ecru colour. Excellent condition. 3 inches wide and 108 inches long (3 yds long) $40.00

#8 Deep knitted lacey border which measures 4 inches from the top edge to the point and 174 inches long ( 4 yds 30 inches) Superb condition $50.00
