Item details

This is a wonderfully fluid length of antique lace which shows evidence of having been stitched to something else a long time ago (before I found it).

124 inches (10 feet 4 inches, 3 1/3 Yards), and 12 inches deep.

You'll see in the photos that there is a hole in the lace, which I think must have happened when it was part of a skirt or cloak, because the fibers themselves are still pretty strong. The large hole is about 14" in from one end, and that leaves you 3 yards of clean trim without significant flaws.

I don't know what style of lace this is. The pattern is two sizes of roses, plus a large plume which I suppose is a leaf. Those two motifs alternate to create a softly uneven scalloped border.

Color is good black, but beginning to have a slight brown 'cast' to it.

Condition is Good to Very Good vintage / antique. Other than the hole, near the one end, this is in extremely good condition for lace that is 100 years old or more.

I find most of my items at estate sales, flea markets, thrift shops and auctions, and I offer them to you in pre-owned, as is condition. I make every effort to describe them to you honestly and to point out flaws that I find, and they're sent from my smoke free, pet free studio. Please feel free to ask questions before you decide to purchase.

Thanks for visiting my shop!

Note that due to time constraints, I only ship two or three times a week. If you need something shipped more quickly, please contact me first to be sure that I'm able to meet your needs so that neither of us is disappointed.

I will ship to most countries, but if you're not certain please feel free to contact me before you purchase. Unfortunately, insurance through the US Postal System is not available except at the most expensive shipping rates for mailing internationally.

If my shipping cost estimate was over the actual cost by more than $2.00, I will refund the overage to you.

I'm happy to combine shipping for items if you purchase them at the same time.


I accept payment via PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout.

If you choose to cancel a purchase before I've shipped it, I will refund your full purchase price plus any shipping fees that you've paid. Cancellations after shipping will be handled on a case by case basis, and please convo me for a solution.

I don't accept exchanges or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My items are sold 'as is', in vintage, pre-owned and / or used condition. I try to describe any problems that I find, and I will only refund if I have grossly misrepresented the condition or size of an item. In this situation, I will refund only after the item has been returned to me (and received) in the condition that it was shipped in.

Etsy policy requires that Sellers be responsible for refunds due to shipping loss or damage. Given this reality, I am adding appropriate insurance to all shipping prices in order to protect both of us. For Priority Mailing, this would mean any item valued over $50 US. (As I am selling unique items, I'm not able to offer an identical or similar replacement, obviously.)

In the rare case that your parcel arrives damaged, or the item has been damaged in transit, you MUST take photos of the damage and upload them for me ASAP, in order for me to file an insurance claim. I'm sorry, but no photos = no refunds.

Additional policies

If you are purchasing with a deadline in mind, please check with me first to be sure that I can accommodate your needs. It will save disappointment on both of our sides. (For instance, holiday or birthday gifts, film shoot, rehearsal needs, etc.)
