Lot of unused lace edgings of a similar technique, early 20th century vintage, all cotton. These have rounds in a Teneriffe style, but I've always thought Tenerife lace was something like hairpin lace, and these clearly are not that.

We do know that these are authentic old laces from the estate of a dealer and collector. But aside from that, I don't know lace at all well, so I tried to get you many close up details of these patterns. Probably machine made needle lace or bobbin lace, I think?

There's four pieces of edging or insertion trims in this lot, ranging from 1 3/4" to 6 1/4" deep (this widest one looks as though it's two widths joined together, the colors aren't the same between the two).

There's a little over 2 yards of each, more than 8 yards altogether here. All has some brown foxing, but no damage from use. It's been carefully cared for over the last 100 years.
