This needle lace cuff has all the characteristics of Irish Youghal lace: no raised cordonnet, semi-naturalistic flowers, the buttonholed loops often with scallops of additional buttonhole stitches surrounding the motifs and outer edge of the lace, a variety of filling stitches, and particularly the mesh ground of irregular bars decorated with picots. This example is of medium quality.
