Cap Crown (Belgium), early 18th century

This is a Cap crown. It is dated early 18th century and we acquired it in 1962. Its medium is linen and its technique is bobbin lace, brussels style. It is a part of the Textiles department.

Instead of connecting bars, the bobbin-made motifs of this early 18th century Brussels-type lace are held together by a net which was added after the motifs were made. Nets are an important feature of other types of laces of the 18th and 19th centuries.

This object was bequest of Richard Cranch Greenleaf (American, 1887–1961). It is credited Bequest of Richard Cranch Greenleaf in memory of his mother, Adeline Emma Greenleaf.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 27 x 21 cm (10 5/8 x 8 1/4 in.)
