SOLD 450 Years Of Lace - The Allhallows Museum Honiton Catalogue * £12 €18 $45 Shipping Included

This is a softback book with 143 high definition images of lace. The book is in excellent condition and is a catalogue of an exhibition of 2002.
The illustrated lace is simply stunning and has examples from the 16th century onwards.
Examples from many European countries are shown as well as from the UK. I adore this urn of flowers and birds from 17th century Italy.
It is also interesting to see how styles and fashions influenced each other.
I am particularly interested in the cross-over influence of Dresden lace and Hollie Point. of which there are many examples in theis book. Below you can see a sweet Hollie Point sampler.
