    I can't tell what kind it is, but I can tell you it's not tatted lace. Hope someone can help you.

    perhaps bobbin lace, but it looks machined to me.


    I could be very wrong, but I did bobbin lace for years until my eyes realized quilting would be easier.

    It looks maybe like it's pulled thread work or bobbin lace?

    The way the motifs are connected looks like machine made lace. It's very pretty.
    Got fabric?

    Looks like Battenbug to me.

    At first I thought, it looks machine made to me. But on second thought I am not sure.

    I don't know what kind of lace that is, but I don't think it is Battenburg. Now I'm curious. It looks like it is machine made not hand made.

    Definitely not Battenburg which is a tape lace. I would have to see the motifs in person, but the sparse filling stitches with the infrequent picots imply that it is handmade. Those are definitely needle lace, but the flowers and leave are eithe machine made or if handmade, they are bobbin lace. Check and see if the filled in areas are evenly woven or irregular. Even would be machine made and irregular is probably bobbin. (there is also a difference at the edges but I can't explain it well in writing). The net it is attached to is also old-- possibly cotton-- nylon net isn't shaped like that.

    A lovely piece if lave! Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you to all for your interesting responses. Jamie - your message makes complete sense. I found that the embroidery is irregular which to me would imply that it is needle lace? What period do you think this could be and do you think that its originates from Brussels? I shall post some more photographs. Thanks for your help
