I bought this beautiful Victorian lace from a lady whose parents worked in the Nottingham lace factories in the 1940's.
Not sure if this is Nottingham lace - it looks very French to me...
palest of gold in colour and intricate tiny lacework details - absolutely stunning!
Anyway, I have a lot of this and it's all stored in a box and not getting admired, so I decided to make something beautiful with it.
I decided to make a very special hanger for a very special dress. Afterall, we can spend hundreds of pounds on beautiful wedding dresses, so don't they deserve a little preferential treatment in the wardrobe?
Just look at the amazing detail in that lace - must have taken an age to make!
I've added mirror backed, mother of pearl and metal buttons
from the Victorian era through to the 1950's
Handle is bound in gold satin ribbon and finished with small vintage leaf brooch.
If you can't live without it - it will be in my folksy shop later at
