Lace designs at Calais Museum

I love these design registers and it’s great to see some of them out on display in the Calais Lace Museum. These pages of lace nets are interesting for the variety they show. Some are regular and look like nets that would be used on hats (the two on the second row) while the piece at the centre of the top row looks quite irregular. The sample at the bottom left looks similar to the design used on the ceiling in the restaurant (see my blog in July). The date given for these pieces is 1908 but the designers are not specified.
