Antique 1800s very Rare Black Silk Veil Mantilla or Stole, which has been intricately Hand Made and then overlaid with ultra fine Leavers lace with a Needlerun over, in black silk thread.
The fabric retains its original shimmer which is truly mesmerising as the wearer moves, look once and the lace isn’t there, look twice and the lace starts to captivate you.
All the edges are panelled as was the style with this type of overlaid lace.
This is a beautiful, feminine lace item and has hardly any weight to it. It's quite rare to find one in this exceptional antique condition and this only adds to its beauty.
This stunningly beautiful and precious lady originates from the west of England and was made by my relatives from Southern Spain, the pattern shows signs of both French, Portuguese and Spanish influences although the strength is in the Leavers
The measurements are;
The Width; 32”
The Length; 140”
Such a wonderful fabric should be seen and shown off, which is why I have decided to sell this lace, to lighten my own Heirloom collection.
It would be the perfect vintage accessory, or an indulgent treat for an avid collector. It would make the most fabulous evening Stole, no one will have another, it's unique and a whole world away from antique lace wraps as it's in unmarked condition and without damage.
The lace has been shown in natural light for clarity and is completely untouched digitally.
