For those of you not lucky enough to be in Berkeley CA this winter, here is your chance to feast your eyes on their current display of nineteenth century laces:

Over 200 slides of hand and machine-made laces, with closeups!

Enjoy!

    This is well worth taking the time to review. The laces are gorgeous, even the types associated with women's handwork. There are some teneriffe pieces that made me understand why it was so popular at the time. And yes, the tatting could be very "loopy".
