Lace, headwear. Originally defined as Brussels.
Open design of flowering stems and other motifs, made in bobbin lace, are joined with a Urai reseau ground. The wide broder of similar design has a ground of more open, simple plaited reseau. Threads used in the reseau are carried across the back of the motifs. Reference: Tois Siecles de Dentelles, Fig. 332, p. 492 (Jean Neder)
