RARE 19th c. Box of Nuns Linen Lacet Thread Point Lace Making
RARE box of The Nuns Linen Lacet Thread for Point Lace Making.
Marked in pencil on bottom: A. Selig, 813 Broadway, bet 11th & 12th Sts.
I've included an ad from an 1871 issue of Harper's Bazaar for A. Selig, a purveyor of
"all materials for needlework, lace work, dress and cloak trimmings".
Box includes 15 yds of lacet thread.
Very Good. Wear appropriate to age and material. Foxing and marks to box. Thread and lace have some yellowing.
Box: 9" x 3" x 1"
