Excellent condition, with some tag ends along the border not cut off. 

This is a product of the Wiener Werkstätte led by Dagobert Peche who became co-director thereof in 1916. It is illustrated on page 110 in Hartmut Lang's "Die Spitzen der Wiener Werkstätte: Dagobert Peche", Barbara Fay Verlag, 2016 Lang attributes the design directly to Dagobert Peche.

This is a contemporary cotton guipure design with plaited brides. There are a few needle-made brides at the upper left of the temple roof which might be a repair.  This is one of a set as illustrated in Lang.
