2106. Alencon needlepoint sleeve trim

  • Type: Alencon
  • Purpose: sleeve trim
  • Date: 1780-1795
  • Colour: natural
  • Width: 6cms
  • Length: 76cms
  • Notes: See Antique Lace- Identifying Types and Techniques By Heather Toomer  Page 57 Plate 49, Page 58 Plate 57(b). Some of the many repairs done in plain Alencon even though the piece itself has a Tortillee ground. Note that this very damaged survivor is unusual – as most such damaged items would have been thrown away. This piece helps us to understand how easily these sleeve trims were damageable. It points to a life where ladies were actually unable to do anything “unladylike”, and was a form of repression against any form of manual labour.
