Battenberg Angel (10x14", open framing, no glass)This angel's gown is a piece of rare, vintage, delicately handmade Battenberg lace. The pattern is an irregular design of circles interconnected in many places by just a single thread of white cotton. It was actually once the front panel of a woman’s jewelry pouch. There was a similar back panel to which it was stitched to form a flat envelope with a drawstring closing. The openings for the ribbon form the looped ruffle at the neck. A satin lining bag was slipped inside to hold the jewels securely. Because the pattern of the lace was so whimsical, I thought the halo of spirals and the wings with oversized polka dots suited this little angel well. After all, not all vintage items have to be serious and formal., battenberg lace
