Allover pattern of continuous flowering stems and leaves. The design is balanced, with edges planned to conform to the collar shape. The muslin motifs are attched to a four-twist machine-made net ground, with hand applied single cord cordonnet outlining the edges. Good, but somewhat fragile condition. Ref: Earnshaw, p. 121 Original donor: Annette Rosenshine.
