TYPE: collar
TECHNIQUE: baldyring, udklipshedebo
”Baldyring” collar with a Hedebo edge and inserted cut work Hedebo. The collar was attached to a shift and was cut open to make a better fit. The collar is a fine example of one kind of ”Baldyring” collar and shows a great variation in the filling of the square spaces. The two square areas in the corners of the inner border are needle lace, which we know from cut work Hedebo.

Please note
• The four-leaved flowers in the inner ”Baldyring” next to the fabric consist of four points, where the Danish buttonhole stitching meets in the centre
• Many spaces are filled with circles of bars of threads, and circles which are only attached at four places.
Both circles are embroidered around beading loops with different numbers of stitches
• The needle lace on the edge consists of rosettes with a Hedebo ring in the middle. The rosettes were sewn together and added to the collar at a later date
• The collar was used in folk dancing around the year 1900 by one of the daughters from a large mansion in Greve. She had probably renovated an older collar
