I have been wondering about these. I have 3  lace pieces I found about 3 years ago and I think they were a Salvation Army steal. I paid $10.00 for the larger one and $5.00 each for two smaller ones.

The large one is 40 inches round. The two smaller ones are about 32 and 26 inches round.

Does anyone know what kind of lace this is and maybe when this type lace was made? I have no idea. They are in excellent shape. The two pictures are of the larger piece. They are all 3 similar but in different patterns.

I don't go to thrift shops much anymore. I have enough stuff and one just doesn't find the good things anymore. Thanks for any help!  Smiley

I'm almost sure that's needle lace. Punta del airia in very bad Italian -- "stitches in the air."

at least 100 years old. or made more recently from an old pattern. 

And you got a STEAL! No wonder you don't thrift any more... you've already won the jackpot!

Wow Scotskipper, thanks for the information! I do believe they are vintage just by the feel and the few small stains.
