Auction ends: January 31, 2016, 8:59 AM PST

Comments: An interesting length of bobbinlace applique on droschel ground. It very well could be an English piece given the nature of the fillings (no needlelace, woven bobbinlace tallies). This design is very sparse. A thin lower border with small regions of fillings, and tiny sprigs used as esprits.  This extreme simplicity is a bit unusual.

Finish: Soft vertical fold creases.
