I believe these lace pieces were part of an Edwardian gown, forming a decorative element to the bodice, with sleeve pieces and cuff pieces. Its an ecru color and is made from strips of heavy bobbin lace that have been sewn together to shape the pieces.
The bodice part is in good condition and measures 22" bottom of armhole across to other armhole. The back from center neck to bottom center is 15" From shoulder at neckline to bottom of front side panel is 14"
Upper sleeve pieces are in poor condition, one of them being better than the other. They measure 18" circumference at top and 10" at the bottom. I have included a 40" matching piece of lace that has two identical side strips each 16" long. A clever designer can use this to improve the sleeves.
The two cuffs are in fair shape mostly needing reinforcing where the little buttons meet. They still have their little frill of silk organza on the ends They measure 8" circumference at the top and 6" at the bottom.
The pieces have been gently soaked in Woolite, rinsed, air dried and pressed. Ready for you to work your magic and make something spectacular.
No stains or odors. Lace is sound except for pieces of the sleeves that need help from the extra pieces of lace included.
