This charming vintage handmade crocheted lace was originally created for a set of pillowcases. It is a lovely color of richly toned pumpkin orange. The crochet pattern is ornate and the craftsmanship is exquisite.
The lace is in two pieces, each 1 5/8" (4.1cm) wide by 39 1/2" (100.3cm) long. It is tightly worked and has body but is soft and flexible. Due to its' vintage I would guess that the tightly spun crochet thread is cotton. The lace might have been piece dyed, the color is fast, and there is one small area at the top of the lace on one panel where the color has more of a red tone. (Please see detail photo.) The lace is in very good vintage condition.
This is absolutely beautiful lace and it would would make a striking trim for linens, home furnishings, fiber art or clothing.
