A pretty piece of hand made tape lace from the Victorian, Edwardian era.  The lace, more than likely, used as a collar or frontal piece on a dress.  Beautifully made, the lace features several rows of straight tape lace. mixed with various needlework filling techniques.  A picot edge finishes the scallop design around the bottom.  I believe the piece was worn as I have it laid in the photo, as it seems to fit best this way. 

Condition is clean.  Only a small amount of damage on the two short ends, possibly from removing from a garment.

Length of the collar is 35" long, at the straight edge.  Width on either end 2-1/4" wide.   Width at the center front, to the point, 3" wide.  Length along the scallop edge, 44-1/4"long. 

Suitable for costuming, wedding bridal or sewing adaption.
