Lace

Lace

We made a marvelous find a while ago when we had the good fortune to visit an old lace factory. We found a trove of hand painted lace patterns. These would have been developed by the design department for use in the adjoining factory.
They are all hand painted and vary in sizes and designs but give an amazing and beautiful insight into the design process before the days of computer design. Fantastic in a frame.
Also maps, adverts, anything that you can hang to brighten up your walls.
