ANTIQUE 1920's FILET LACE APPLIQUE LARGE BUTTERFLY HANDMADE COTTON This auction is for a sweet antique butterfly filet lace applique, handmade, handmade from white cotton, that dates to the 1920's ~ perfect for crafters, quilters and the seamstress.
Purchased at a local Western New York estate farm auction. Needs a soaking to refresh. Comes direct from the estate farm auction as found and has not been laundered. This applique was found in a trunk that has picked up patina with old age oxidation storage spots from years of non use. This will be pure white again with its first gentle soaking.
The applique is in very good condition for its age, still retaining its original shop label. No flaws noted except for oxidation spots.
Ideal for many projects, perfect to use for towels, doll clothing, quilting, and so many other craft and sewing projects.
Size: 8-1/2" in length x 3-1/2" at widest area in width.
We are happy to answer any questions about this item.
The items I sell are antique or vintage textiles. They are not new and not flawless. If you expect perfection, antique or vintage is NOT for you. The items I sell have been used and loved or stored away for decades. Textiles stored away for decades ALWAYS pick up small oxidation storage spots. Unless stated in description, I have not cleaned the textile unless stated and will be up to the buyer to refresh.
