    Where on the stocking would this piece of lace have been worn?

      Hi Dominique
      I have to say that this was a “best guess” based on the quality, probable dating and size of the lace. The piece is very small, too small to be even useful as a pocket or embellishment. Reference sources used for the “look” were Queen Elizabeth’s Wardrobe Unlock’d by Janet Arnold page 206 The Hosiers. Please do have a look at images for 18th Century Hosiery in Google also. Then try 18th Century Stockings.
      Your views would be much appreciated.
      Sincerely
      Admin
