Item details

Stunning & Exquisite Set of 3 French Antique Hand Made Lace Collars

I don't really know how to describe these collars. There are so many kinds of lace and variants of (like crochet, appliqué etc...) and I am still learning....

However, these are totally exquisite pieces, all totally different.

One has hand made floral embroidery over filet net, the second is broderie anglaise and made of a stiffish cotton, the third is possibly crocheted in fine cotton with flowers embroidered over the top and a beautiful bring detail all along the edge. The last one is similar to the third but has flowers embroidered around the edge.

They are in perfect condition with no holes or marks.

This came in a huge lot of linens, textiles and other items from an auction in Pau last year. The story behind the auction was poignant - Maya, a well known linens dealer who owned a vast and wonderful collection, had passed away about 10 years earlier and I happened to be sat next to her husband. And he was telling me that he had kept all Maya's stock to pass on to their daughter to continue the business when she had finished travelling the world. Unfortunately, she contracted an illness and didn't survive. He waited four years before feeling able to let the collection go... So it has been an honour to pass all these lovely items to my own buyers who have loved and treasured them.

I describe my items to the best of my ability but please remember these are antique or vintage items and not every single flaw may be listed, It is part of the charm of bygone times and have had a previous life and could tell many stories. So please take this into consideration - always happy to answer questions, send more photos or provide more details before you make your final decision.

I scour brocantes, vide greniers, auctions, and all sorts of nooks and crannies to find wonderful old French treasures and it is a passion that grows greater by the day. Where I can I give the story behind each item as they too have had a life and are now looking for their own new story ... I love to share my passion and am happy that these long lost items are going to new homes.

Everything is well packaged with bubble wrap and polystyrene chips where necessary. Will send anywhere but please don't hesitate to ask for definite rates as the ones I publish are based on the post office website and not always reliable and will amend the shipping accordingly. I don't charge any extra for shipping (i.e. time etc) and I recycle packaging where possible to help the planet.

IMPORTANT - IF YOUR COUNTRY IS NOT DISPLAYED IN THE SHIPPING PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN ADD PRIOR TO CHECKOUT. The "Everywhere Else" box has the highest postage rate so do no hesitate to contact me so I can add your country and change the postage accordinglg. I will send anywhere in the world.

I use an economy courier for France, UK and a large part of mainland Europe (with insurance against loss), for everywhere else I use La Poste however please request definite rates and mention if you would like it sent "signed for" and insured against loss. I have just added shipping for France, UK and the US as the rest of Europe and overseas are the same rate usually.

Happy to combine postage too - for example the cheapest courier to UK is up to 2kg so can pack quite a lot for the minimum cost. For orders of two items or more a free gift will be included.

Last but not least, please don't hesitate to ask me any questions or for more photos, I am always happy to oblige.
