Handmade French lace collar . This gorgeous piece of crochet lace is a Cleopatra style and is in beautiful condition . The color is dark cream from age or tea stained but it can be washed to bring it back to white ( I myself prefer to leave the natural aging in the lace ). There is one tiny brown spot on the back side of the collar.
This is another treasure found on my adventures in Paris . It will be a lovely addition to any project or collection .
