Jean Neder: A bobbin guipure of the narrow type of braid which distinguishes the work of this region from that of Milan. In thes patterns the braid is continuous without crossings, making close and frequent turns leaving no room between for ground reseau. The thread is firm and round of the typical Italian cream white linen.
