      Hi Elizabeth
      Could you clarify please? Do you think that this drawn threadwork is specifically from Tenerife or could it be from anywhere?
      Sincerely

      • Let me see I can clarify in despite my English. The historical antecedents of Teneriffe Lace are the suns or stars placed in the squares of works like drawnwork or open sheath known as SOLES SALMANTINOS or SOLES DEL CASAR, famous in Spain of the XVI, XVII Centuries, when probably they went to the Canary Islands where they developed their personality and Techniques to be the Canaries Rosetas. In this case, you have the drawnwork.
