Details

Antique lace strip from Valenciennes (France). Its remarkable decoration consists of a medallion framed by leaves, where two humans arms are inscribed in the shape of a St Andrew’s Cross. This motif, which recurs all along the piece, can be related to the symbol of a Franciscan religious community. It is a religious lace almost certainly intended for a Holy Week brotherhood. Minimal gaps and small old stains. Good condition.
