This Victorian lace collar is a recent eBay find.
It’s a period bridal jabot tie collar that came from a New York estate with an extensive collection of historic textiles. I was sold on the ecru color as I find it easier to style than white lace.
I love the embroidered tulle, Brussels lace edging, and original silky floral ribboning. I adore Edwardian design and clothing. It’s so beautifully designed and intricately constructed. I pass on most things I see because styling them without looking like I’m wearing a period costume is challenging but every once in a while I find a piece such as this that ticks all the boxes.
Worn here with a short sleeve black blazer I’ve had since the 90’s and a pink blouse with billowing sleeves.
