Em's Heart

It's no secret that I am extremely fond of vintage linens and lace, and I couldn't resist showing you this exquisite piece.


It is yet another rare vintage find (and unfortunately already sold) from Em's Heart

This antique needlelace runner is an extraordinary piece of Venetian needlelace and contains 4 scenes depicting a couple in period dress that changes from scene to scene. 

The urns of flowers are in needle and hand made net lace.  It is trimmed with a Reticella needlelace.   From the Late 19th century. 

I know why these gorgeous pieces never last long at Em's Heart. If you are a lover of linens, as I am, stop by and vist  Em's Heart.

These are gorgeous. Ten years ago or so I took a bobbin lacemaking course and loved it. The class gave me such an appreciation of the work that goes into making a piece of lace. With machinery technology we forget the handwork that used to go into these works of art.
