TYPE: collar and serviette
TECHNIQUE: cut work Hedebo
Collar and serviette in cut work Hedebo. The collar has large distinctive scallops, typical for the period around the year 1900. The large patterns of the collar consist of leaf and half moon-shaped cut spaces, grouped in a manner that forms flowers. The main motif of the serviette is a large circular cut space, surrounded by eight drop-shaped spaces. The cut spaces in both the collar and the serviette are filled with needle lace. The collar has much greater variation than the serviette, which was probably made 10-20 years after the collar. Both are finished with scallops with circular cut spaces in every scallop.

Details



Please note
• The beautiful French embroidery on the collar which is replaced on the serviette by plain sewn satin stitch
• All the 83 round spaces along the collar’s edge are filled with ‘spiders’, and not with traditional beading loops. On the serviette both “spiders” and beading loops can be seen
• The serviette might be embroidered from a pattern in a needlework magazine, which, at the beginning of the 20th century, enabled mass production of cut work Hedebo
