Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous hand made Duchesse mixed lace collar from the later Victorian, Edwardian era. Off white in color, the collar, dress embellishment piece, is filled with scrolls and flowers insets, joined with bars or brides. Both the inside and outside edges are made in a scallop design. Beautiful for embellishing a dress or outfit of today, Or just enjoy the beauty of the piece.
The lace is 4-1/2" wide.
Laid in the round shape, it is 19-1/2" diameter across. 37-1/2" along the inside neck edge, opening to opening. At the outside edge, the collar is 61" around, from opening to opening. (see last photo)
Condition: Although very nice, I did find about five broken thread bars. Skilled with a needle, I am sure these would be an easy fix.
