Battenberg Lace

BATTENBERG LACE
Patterns formed with narrow tape, joined together with various brides, producing a form of Renaissance lace, but of coarser quality. Now made both by machinery and hand. Hand-made is used for collars and cuffs on dresses, and machine-made for drapery and other purposes.
