Description

The exquisite and everyday beautiful linens and lace photographed for this book represent collectible household styles made in Europe and North America during the 20th century. Both rare and commonly found examples are included so that readers can learn to differentiate between the two groups. The chapters are organized by types of work, including Appenzell, Battenberg, Bobbin lace, chemical and other machine laces, crochet, cutwork, embroidery, linen damask, explained with origins and copies liberally discussed. The photographs are breathtaking, from over-all room settings to minute details. This is a visually exciting book. The price guide is a valuable tool for this expanding field of collectibles which seem to be undervalued when the quality and supply of fine examples are considered.
