Hand-embroidered collar, c.1900

The collar is fashioned from fine cotton batiste and is bordered with a narrow band of cotton lace. The hand- embroidered floral pattern is a treasure of needle art. The design includes padded satin stitch, French knots, and open work with fancy fill.

The condition is almost excellent. The collar, which has darkened with age, just needs a good soak to bring it back to white.

The collar is 48" long and 5 3/4" wide at the center-back.
