This attractive Bedfordshire edging is dated to the 19th Century.  It is slightly curved and is made up of two pieces -  a wide edging and a narrow insertion.  They might have been joined to make a wider piece of lace or possibly so that if it was used on more than one garment, the more expensive wide piece was protected from damage as the sewing stitches were unpicked.  It is made in white cotton thread and is in good condition.   Purchased for the collection. Catalogue: GF.41.2011
