Offered by: Ebay seller bethsalie, paris, Île-de-France, France
Comments: A Point de Gaze border, no raised work. Foral motifs, but with an architectural look caused by the ‘fence’ running through the middle of the design.

A higher end market piece with floral swags and a ribbon/bow design.  Closely spaced teardrop shapes in the border separated by a lattice grid filling. This piece doesn’t do as much with the decorative ‘mode’ fillings as the one above, but is no less effective. But both these pieces experiment a little with clothwork.

The guipure work around the edge look almost like birds -overall quite a bold appearance. Compare this with the more usual second piece with the lighter three layer construction – Crosses on the outer edge, flowers in the center, and a small woven leaf neckline.
