Gentle collar from France
Last month I was browsing through the goods on one of the auction sites and ran into this beatiful sample of irish crochet lace, that was made in France. At least the seller was telling so. Couple of days of worries, a letter saying that I won the auction and the only thing I had to worry about is the postal delivery, till my precious will arrive.
And here it is, the perfect sample of irish crochet lace tat was made in the beginning of the 20th century. I understand that the photo on the top is not a good idea, but I do not have a proper photo background at my summerhouse. That is the next issue I have to work on.
The collar is in a perfect condition and absolutely symmetrical. Folded in two it is identical, even filling lines are the same on both sides. The central part of a collar is a big flower and branches
Here is the central flower
It is made of a classic irish rose with a buttony in the center and a set of dcs using the packind cord over the edge
The petals of this flower are made with a element, that I have called a sun, it might have another name but so far I have not met it in the books. It can be found in a tutorial Flower with radial center and the filling with bars that I also did earlier Rose and shamrock in a hexagon shape motif The only thing you can do is joun these two elements
