Walkern lace

We have been very kindly given some beautiful hand made lace and crochet, which has come from an old farmhouse in Walkern, shortly going up for sale. It is so pretty and delicate and there's lots of it! We think it was probably made by someone in the village many years ago, which makes in extra special. We shall use it wisely, as advised in this quote by John Ruskin.

'The real good of a piece of lace, then, you will find, is that it should show, first, that the designer of it had a pretty fancy; next, that the maker of it had fine fingers; lastly that the wearer of it has worthiness or dignity enough to obtain what is difficult to obtain, and common sense enough not to wear it on all occasions.' 

This piece fits perfectly across the hall stand.... with double sided tape, no harm done, to lace or furniture.
