Antique Honiton Lace page 3

Gay Ann Rogers Needlework

 

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.

Honiton lace goes way back to the 17th century, but it reached the height of its popularity after Queen Victoria's wedding.

 

It stayed popular throughout Queen Victoria's reign and these pieces are all 19th century, made during Queen Victoria's life time.

 

Most pieces are in great condition considering their age; some have breaks and tears here and there, most not disfiguring. I look at it this way: if I were over 120 years old, I'd have some breaks and tears too.
