CONNOISSEUR’S GUIDE to The Many Lives of Old Lace      $20

“Altered” has always been a dreaded word in the world of antiques.  Good vintage handmade lace should be an exception to that rule.

So much of the finest of handmade old lace was reworked so it could continue to be worn and enjoyed that to discount that lace is to overlook a huge potential for collection.  Alterations in old lace re clues to past lives.

Learn to read the stories in the threads of old lace that tell of those past lives. See lace as it was worn originally, and as it was remade and worn again centuries later.
