From the late Victorian era, a pretty Renaissance tape lace Battenburg collar. A finer design collar, which would be suitable for costuming or wedding dress embellishment. It is made of a couple different types of tape laces.
Worked in open and filling stitches of scrolls and flowers. Trimmed at the edge in a picot needlework. Off white in color in a cotton thread.
Measurement: 28" around the neck line. Width at the center front, from the neck area to the bottom edge is 5-1/4" wide. Measuring from the outside edge, from one side to the other, it is 46" around.
Condition: Clean. Although the collar very nice it does have a couple of filling stitches (see photo) which would need minor repair.
