This book sets out much of the basic information needed to identify many of the major European hand-made laces in a neat volume, making it easy to assimilate and readily portable for both the newcomer to the lace world and those needing a handy reference.

The laces are divided into the main categories of needle and bobbin-made lace with details of specific types, such as Maltese, being given with clear illustrations. A glossary and bibliography are also included.

We have a collection of lace from my grandmother (1900 - 1976) and would like someone knowledgeable to look at it. Please could you recommend someone? Thank you
