RE: [lace] Nuremberg lace

2022-12-01 Thread DevonThein
Dear Ursula,
Thank you so much for these references. Although I had looked for a lace
museum in Nuremberg, I had not found this lace museum, nor had I understood
how important the lace school in Nordhalben was both historically, and in its
relation to the Deutsche Kloppelverband.
I think I may write them an email about our lace pieces and see if they know
anything about them.

[lace] Nuremberg lace

2022-11-30 Thread DevonThein
I have encountered some pieces of lace said to have been made in Nuremberg in
the 18th century. I don’t know anything about Nuremberg lace production.
There is something in Palliser about German production. She claims that “ A
museum has been lately formed at Nuremburg for works and objects connected
with the lace manufacture and its history. It contains some interesting
specimens of Nuremburg lace…”
Our piece is bobbin lace with a five hole ground, no gimp. It can be seen
here: https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/214683

Any thoughts or insights would be appreciated.

Devon
