Princess lace wedding veil

Appliquéd Princess lace wedding veil, c.1910

Imagine your walk down the aisle in this heirloom quality wedding veil, "something old" for your wedding ensemble. Remember the old English saying:

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

Made from white cotton tulle hand appliquéd with bouquets of princess lace flowers, our graceful veil can be passed on to a daughter or niece for her own traditional wedding.

Princess lace is a tape lace available in rounded and scalloped shapes like handmade Brussels lace. Princess lace is a great buy if you want the look without the exorbitant cost of Brussels lace.

With a hint of the seraglio, the quasi-circular shape intimates an alluring feminine charm. The veil is about floor length, depending on your height—the mannequin is 6' tall—and on how much is taken up at the top with a headpiece.

There inheres in our noble wedding veil an uncommon beauty both historic and classic. As she walks down the aisle in this antique lace treasure, the bride will personify a poem of elegant refinement—for the guests on that day; and for the bridegroom forevermore.

The condition is almost excellent. I found a few tiny mends that are virtually invisible.

The veil is 80" wide by 84" long.
