Physical description

Cap of black silk bobbin lace with lappets. Shield shape and bordered with leaves with parallel lines inside filled with tiny bows. The middle, more open area of net, is worked with blossoms, and some of them hang down in trails. The lappets are very long, and narrow where they meet the cap and widening down their length. The border pattern of leaves and lines are continued, and are broken by two symmetrically patterned cartouches, and the net ground is scattered with spots.
