Beautifully worked antique hand made bobbin lace edging was originally attached to the hem of a Victorian christening garment. The piece is two and a half yards long and three inches wide. It is ivory in color. Condition is clean and very good. It is still basted together at the ends to form a circle (see photo). There is one tiny nick where it was removed from the original garment (see photo). The Victorians used their lace over and over so this lovely piece might have had a long history before landing on the christening coat where I found it.
I can't tell you what specific style of lace it is, but the high quality workmanship is obvious
