Here is an incredibly fine embroidered whitework collar from the 1850's. Possibly a bit earlier or a bit later.  The 19th century collar is filled with impeccable small stitches, so small, a magnifying glass is needed to see.  Padded stitches form the flowers and leaves. 

Again, the use of padded stitches form a design at the border, terminating with a scallop buttonhole edging.   The narrow round collar is made of muslin fabric with the embroidery worked in cotton thread. This beautiful collar was deaccession from a small Ohio museum.  Attached is still the inventory tag.

Condition is very nice.

Size:  1-1/8" wide center back, from top to bottom.  12-3/4" long from one side to the other.
