Bequest of Louise Tifft Brown 1933.344
This lace was given to the museum by Louise Tifft Brown, a native Clevelander who became an expert in lace while living in Venice for 35 years.
Double-headed birds alternating with flowering vases appear on this filet/lacis lace. The pattern repeats horizontally, with organic spirals which burst into the upper and lower registers.
