Vintage cotton crochet lace edging... this might have been used for linens originally, but we think it would be lovely for edging open shelves in a cupboard or kitchen! The hearts are perfectly cottage style, even just as this is, with browning and spots.
There's 3 1/2 yards here, all in a continuous piece. It's 4 1/2" deep at the points. It's fairly heavy, not delicate or 'lacy', but it's been used, and we did see some broken threads. We just hung it on the edge of our old wooden table with push pins for photos, and it looks very pretty.
