Edwardian Lace

There are many gorgeous garments that come from the Edwardian Period. So many we find now a days are usually in yellowed, torn, beat up condition. Edwardian garments are just now hitting the 100 year mark. This making them technical antiques in age. My favorite collection of Edwardian Lace garments comes from http://www.vintagetextile.com/

Right: 1905 Irish Crochet Lace Knickers

This collection is truly amazing! I would have to say as a professional collector and dealer Vintage Textile.com is absolutely a company to be respected for its knowledge and collection alike!

For all of you Titanic junkies (including myself) this is going to be a great week!

I thought it would be fun to start off with an Edwardian lace feature.
