A Victorian or Edwardian white veil made of mixed tape lace, on tulle, hand made. A veil for hat, bonnet or wedding. Lovely white work on the entire piece of netting. Made in a pattern of meandering flowers and leaves. Three of the edges are finished with a turtle novelty braid while the top edge is a plain tape braid.
All trims are hand stitched to the tulle. A lovely piece of art in needle work. Alas, the veiling is not perfect as it does have some holes (shown in photo). The larger holes are concentrated in the same area. A few scattering of tiny holes.
Size is 39" long x 15" wide.
