Schiffli Lace, Machine Lace Doily, Lace Doily in a Pale Cream Shade.
Measures: 13" / 11" - Beautiful! All intact, no marks. Washed by hand. Darling!
This finely worked Schiffli lace doily comes to you very well cared for over the years, it's difficult to find tidy examples of this lace. This one is a honey.
This method of lace-making is done by embroidering a pattern on a sacrificial fabric that has been chemically treated so as to disintegrate after the pattern has been created. Schiffli machines came into use in the late 19th century.
All my linens and doilies have been laundered, pressed and examined carefully. The only exception to this, is when the item is very delicate due to age, pencil/sewing markings, or in its original packaging.
