Antique lace
In this website you can find lace from the 16th century: cutwork and pulled threadwork, punto in aria to finest Venetian needlepoint and outstanding Flemish lace. Then there are the examples of magnificent French lace such as point de France, Alencon, Argentan, Argentella and of course point de Sedan to mention just a few. You may also find  eighteenth century delicate Brussels lace and the extravagant point de gaze 0f the 19th century. Many more examples of delightful laces such as Honiton and Buckingham in England, also Ireland with its famous lace schools of the 19th century produce many examples of wonderful lace.
