This is a gorgeous antique 19th century handmade bobbin lace collar dress embellishment in white Milanese or Flemish hand made lace that was removed at some time from a dress neckline judging from the top edge.
The hand made antique lace collar was made in Italy, Holland or Belgium in the early 1800s.
The gorgeous lace collar measures 5 inches from centerpoint tip to tip; 11 inches deep.
Other than evidence of having been removed from a neckline, the lace collar excellent antique used condition with no holes or broken stitches seen.
Gorgeous hand made lace like this was often part of a trousseau and handed done through the generations, and hence, from clothing item to clothing item.
