Help IDing lace pieces?
I'm not usually drawn to lace but I found 6 lace rectangles -- I would say they're placemats but there's no cloth in the middle, just lace all over--maybe they're placemats anyway...they're definitely vintage, and very fine (to my eye), very endearing work, no stains...what kind of lace is this, does anyone know? And how does one take care of it? And what would be the approximate value of these? Does anyone have any favored lace sites or books I could consult?
Thanks very much in advance, and I'm sorry about the quality of the closeup -- it's hard to do it with a flash. If anyone needs a better photo I could try again tomorrow...
Here is a link that might be useful: the first two pics :)
