A marvel of delicate traceries of rococo ornament in architectural style: miniature vase forms,broken curves, flowing acanthus leaves and flowers connected by tiny brides picotees in exquisite workmanship. Edge finished with cxrisp button-holed points. Top finished with a bobbin insertion. Fine linen thread probably from the monastery of Crema. - Jean Neder
