This Fall I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and I saw a very small but impressive lace exhibit.
This lace was made in Brussels and is thought to have been bought by Empress Maria Theresa to give to her daughter Marie Antoinette.
Laces were worn by noble men on the ends of their scarfs.
This hankie was made by Emma Radford from Devon England it's called Honiton Lace. Queen Victoria used this style of lace for her wedding dress in 1840.
