Exceptional Antique French Normandy Lace Tray Cover with Petit Point Roses in color, and white hand embroidery on the Fond De Bonet inserts. Lovely fine tissue linen with elegant tambour lace, white work embroidery, and rows upon rows of French Valenciennes worked into the design. Crazy beautiful, the French embroidered net laces, needle-run lace, and hand embroidered fine cotton batiste rounds and half moon shaped insertions take this over the top.
This is one of the most sought after of all the hand made antique laces, and it's no wonder. So rare to find and certainly in this condition, there are just a few minute breaks in the net and lace as shown. Gorgeous on a tea table, a vanity tray, to frame or to have made into a pillow.
