This exceptional vintage bobbin lace trim is approximately 60mm wide.  This lace is sold by the metre.  This handmade lace is in good condition for its age.  Based on the lace that this came with it is likely to date from the late 1800's to early 1900's. It has a few age spots which add to its character.  It is exquisite!

Bobbin lace, while still made by artisans today, was used in fashion from the 16th to the early 20th century. Bobbin laces are made by using a pattern drawn on parchment or card that is attached to a padded support. An even number of threads (from 8 to more than 1,000) are looped over pins arranged at the top of the pattern. Each thread is wound around the neck of an elongated spool, or bobbin. In the creation of bobbin lace, the threads are crossed over or twisted around each other to produce solid areas of either linen-stitch (which resembles woven fabric) or half-stitch (a more open stitch), areas of decorative filling stitches, and a background linking the motifs together.
