The handwork that went into this antique tatting trim amazes me. Made up of tiny little circles that have been tatted and woven together, it must have taken days, maybe weeks to accomplish. From the Edwardian era in the early 1900's it could indeed be older, from the Victorian era in the late 1800's. I discovered this beautiful tatted piece where the lady had a large collection of antique trims and laces. Please see my Sewing section for more.
This particular piece was wound up in a ball as you see here. I unrolled it to measure it and then rolled it back up as I found it. It is a full 7 yards, or over 250 inches in length. Made of ecru colored cotton and in great antique condition, it surely needs a new home where it will be treasured and used.
I look for Cool Finds where ever I go and I never know what I’ll run across. I find sewing boxes and so much more and realize that, being vintage, they most likely have been used and will have some wear and tear. Buttons may have come off of a dress or coat, or they might have never been used at all. Books may have been handled and gone through over and over.
