Vintage Silk Chantilly Lace from France


Here is some difficult to find silk vintage Chantilly lace. This is an exquisitely delicate and unusual 12″ wide Chantilly lace. Simple flowers and leaves are strewn gracefully across a loose netting background, with one gently scalloped edge. Both edges are adorned with wispy eyelash trim. Once hand-washed in cold water, this lace softens up delectably. This would perfect on the bodice of a romantic vintage-inspired wedding gown!

Double Helix Chantilly Lace


We call this lace, “When Scientists Marry!” If Gertrude Belle Elion (renowned research scientist in chemistry) had ever decided to tie the knot, her gown would have been trimmed with this enchanting Chantilly lace. This is a 2 1/2″ wide ivory Chantilly lace in an oh-so-scientific pattern of double helixes, on a loose netting background and framed by a wee picot edge.

Alençon Lace Trim


Alençon lace or point d’Alençon lace was first made in France in the 16th century, and is renowned for its fine netting ground, corded outlined floral patterns, and heavenly detailing. Alençon lace is also called the “Queen of lace”, and is superlative to use as trim for wedding gowns and bridal veils. This 1 1/4″ wide imported French Alençon lace is an edging lace with a floral corded motif, netting background, and a shallow scalloped border. We offer it in both soft white and creamy ivory, and it costs $5.96/yard.
