Whitework Filet Lace and Embroidered Curtain or Bedcover: French C19th
A very fine antique filet lace whitework bedcover, made in France and dating from the late 19th century.
The incredibly fine filet lace panels depict imagery of bowls of flowers and heraldic emblems interspersed with cut-work and hand embroidered floral panels.
The lace and embroidered panels have been skilfully patch-worked together to make this wonderfully versatile bedcover or curtain.
The whole piece has been finished with an all around edging of bobbin lace.
It is in excellent antique condition.
