Pattern for rose point lace, designed by Charlotte Treadwin (lace pattern)

Charlotte Treadwin (1820-1890)


Point lace is made by applying readymade braids to the paper pattern and working needle lace stitches to make patterns and join the motifs created by the braid. Accessories such as collars, cuffs and fan leaves could be made from the lace. Patterns like this could be worked at home and satisfied the demand for antique revival laces in the second half of the 19th century.
