Bobbin Lace Motif (Tb 68)

Bobbin lace motif
4 inches

This bobbin lace motif has an outside scalloped trial, braiding with picots, leaves in sets of three, and a raised tally in the center.

Small motifs such as these were employed singly to decorate smaller items such as pin cushions or combined with additional identical or coordinating motifs to adorn larger items such as skirt hems. This motif is now on display in the Handmade Lace Exhibit at the museum.
