Description

Milk Maid antique white lace cuffs.

As soon as I saw this lace I wanted to make romantic cuffs,
it is so feminine, and yet has a cheeky frothy look that made
me think of old paintings with pretty milk maids.

The main body of of lace dated from c1930 - and has a lovely
embroidered pattern.
The top edge lace is even older - Victorian c1890.
Both pieces of lace are in fantastic condition and are crisp white.
The combination of these two beautiful eras makes for a wildly
heirloom pair of cuffs !

I then added tiny Japanese seed beads in both matt and shimmer
white across the top and at the sides - to give a bit of discreet
shimmer and shine.

They are tied with a white ribbon - tie comfortably to fit.

This listing is for a set of cuff (2 cuffs)

Free Shipping

each cuff size flat: 180mm wide x 120mm deep

As all designs are made with mixtures of fabric and beads /
crystals they cannot be washed - can be spot cleaned.
They should be treated and worn with care so that the
delicate stitches do not snag. When not being worn keep
flat in a safe place away from sunlight, damp, dogs, cats
or children !!

Comes in a box (made from recycled material).

    These are unbelievably beautiful. The design, the intricacy are absolutely amazing. There aren't words for this. If you are a crafter, an embroiderer, you can truly appreciate the amount of time and work that went into something so delicate and lovely. I have decided not to wear mine because I don't want anything to happen to it. Instead, I am mounting it and taking to a framer tomorrow to keep it safe behind glass. It truly is a piece of heart made with skill and love. Thank you so much for sharing with the rest of us. It is a treasure.
