Is your wedding theme "vintage" or "rustic"? If so, keep it authentic with a little lace purse on your arm. This is a vintage lace doily REMAKE. It will fulfill the ancient tradition of carrying "something old" on your wedding day. Tuck your little necessities inside.
A vintage lace doily, circa 1930, was used to fashion the purse. The shape and style is known as a "reticule". The word "reticule" comes from the Latin - reticulum - meaning net. Roman soldiers, Julius Ceasar included, carried one at their waist to carry their coins.
This beautiful handmade white doily, with picot edge, was rescued from oblivion, re-purposed for a bride's special day. Such skillful vintage needlework ought not to have to end in a landfill.
I think the doilies are quite precious, even just from a historical point of view. Handmade by young girls, possibly for her future home, decorative and useful at that time in history. Discarded today, cast off, useless.................except if it's re-purposed.
