Binche Collar

Description
This collar was made in the Binche point de Fée style bobbin lace. It has an abundance of square tallies and a snowflake ground. The curved outer edge has picots and the ends come to a point. The pattern, which features a three and one-half inch long repeated segment, was made for the collar shape and identified by the donor as lace made by Belgian lace makers during World War I.
