Flemish Tape Lace
14.5" x 144"
Simple tape, simple fillings, 5-pointed star ground, straight edges. Unknown origin.
From the seller:
This lace came from the estate of the Morgenthau's. I believe this is the family of Henry Morgenthau who became U.S.Sectretary Of the Treasury under President Roosevelt. So somewhere along the family route. The lady herself also came from the original family of the Lehman Bros - the big wall street company that went bankrupt in 2008.
