To Jodjce tbe Ae of Lmre.
In fixing the approximate date of
any given iece of lace it is well to re
member that uiachiuc made thread was
not used till after tbe iH'ginnins of tbe
eighteenth century. Before that time
the threads ran in lengths of about
twenty inches, for the worker could
stretch no farther than her distaff and
had to break off and join again, so that
after unraveling sonic twenty-five
inches of thread no joint Is found the
lace is surely after the introduction of
machine made thread. The "bride's
ornee" alone are enough to go by. In
the fifteenth century the bar bad only
a knot or n dot as ornament, in the
sixteenth a double or single loop and
in the seventeenth a star. The edging
also helps. A sharp angle In the scal
lop fixes the date In the middle ages,
the rounded scallop came in with the
nineteenth century, with the seven
teenth a dotted scallop, and the eight
eenth century one Is more elaborate, a
Iprge alternating with a small scallop
and dots along In the center of each.
