Welcome to My Preview
Three pretty Honiton collars and one half-collar. These collars vary in complexity and make a good study lesson for technique.
Honiton lace is a bobbin lace from Devon and the only bobbin lace I have collected over the years.
On the open market, many dealers confuse Honiton with Brussels bobbin lace. The two are indeed similar, but Honiton has distinct rounded shapes whereas Brussels lace is more angular.
You will see the rounded shapes of Honiton particularly well in these collars.
Here is one of the pieces that will be for sale at 10:00 a.m. California time on October 13.
There will be a total of 4 pieces of Honiton for sale on this page.
A very pretty Honiton lace collar with leaves of various sizes, abstract roses and shamrocks.
