Collar of Linen and Bobbin Lace with Flowerpots, anonymous, c. 1630 - c. 1640

bobbin lace, h 60cm × w 78.5cm. More details

Although both collars originated in the same period, the 1630s, the type of lace used to embellish them differs greatly. The pattern of the Italian needle lace is highly geometric, while that of the Southern-Netherlandish bobbin lace is freer and has a more compact structure.
