EXQUISITE VICTORIAN DRAWNWORK DOILY L-3
This is extremely fine, museum quality , hand made "Drawnwork" / "Drawn thread" needle lace doily. The lace maker starts with a piece of material and with a needle and thread draws the threads of the material together to make the design. The spider web in the doily is done with a needle and thread after the drawnwork is done as a filler. This technique dates back to the 16th Century. It took most likely 40-50 hours of work to complete this exquisite sample of the Victorian era finest workmanship. It survived its 130+ years of existence in excellent condition with no broken threads. Size : 5-3/4 x 5-3/4 ".
