Superb Antique hand made Italian Rosaline bobbin lace Cantu Collar in Cream Ecru, fashioned of linen. This lovely collar frames the face beautifully, it features an ornate floral motif with scrolls, and is finished off with a scalloped edge of the floral design all around. In centuries past collars like this were so valuable that they were mentioned with jewelry and gems in wills and household valuable inventories.
Fantastic handwork, by an experienced lace maker, a beautiful piece of this art to add to your collection, for study, to display on your mannequin, have framed or to actually wear. This is in wonderful antique condition, there are two small spots shown in the last photograph which may soak out, I have priced this lovely collar accordingly.
