TYPE: collar
TECHNIQUE: cut work Hedebo, Hedebo edge
Collar with cut work Hedebo and a Hedebo edge. The collar is full of detail and dominated by two large tulips on the sides. Around the tulips are round and oval cut spaces with beading loops and crosses. The oval and square cut spaces around the centre are filled with beading loops with many picots. The single motifs are connected with small vines and leaves embroidered in satin stitch. The lace consists of 34 half rosettes made up of seven Hedebo rings with scallops, and filled with points and cross threads. The collar’s form and composition suggests that this collar is from around 1890.

Please note
• The right angled frame of a single and double row of squared ”Baldyring” spaces. The row finishes neatly at the edge.
• The filled ”Baldyring” row in the collar’s centre, above the half rose and the two squares
• The row of tilted scallops along the inner side of the collar, which indicates that the lace was embroidered as a single unit, and attached later to the collar
• The many whole and half buttonhole scallop wheels
