Needlelace handkerchief border

14.5" x 14.5", ~3" wide
Overall good and clean, few broken fillings and mesh. Botton section cut out. A difficult but not impossible repair.
Mounted for the 2007 exhibition.

19th-20th c. Much like old flat ground, but with raised ptdegaz cords. Note the small woven fillings.
I've seen this before in a book. Similar to Belgian_unknown_border_1
