Point lace cuff

Cuff. Floral design. The technique of the raised outline and the toilé looks like that of Point de Gaze, but the lace is not typical of any special make. It may be an imitation of raised Venetian point, but was probably made north of Italy. This piece belongs to the same set as 11.28-11.30.
