This vintage, pillow lace trim was made with coarse linen thread.  The threads were twisted and plaited together and then woven to form a mesh background with a pattern of flowers and points d’esprit.  The bottom edge is scalloped, and the border of this edge is scalloped again with fine, looped picots.  The center of the five-petaled flowers were created with spiderwork. 

 

This item was purchased in England in the early 1990’s from a vendor who explained that it was vintage and made by hand.  Although a small section on the lower border is frayed, it is in good vintage condition.
