This is a beautiful and delicate square Brussels applique lace veil with hand made droschel ground. Dates from around 1820. The ground is made up of 2cm strips of hand made droschel net. Unusual to find such a large example, this process was labour intensive and hugely expensive. Large pieces such as this were rarely seen after 1830, when machine made nets became available. In general good condition with just a few small holes and repairs and some pale age browning in places.
