Vintage Battenberg (or Battenburg) LACE Doily 1920's Round 8 by TheMaineCoonCat, $12.00. Battenberg lace is a type of needlepoint lace. Also known as Renaissance lace, but I'm confused, since renaissance lace is a tape lace, and sometimes even called Robbin lace (knypplad spets). "A heavy lace made from shaping linen braid, or tape, into patterns and then using “brides,” or connections made of thread, to hold the pattern together. Battenberg lace was created in the late 19th century."
