Tiny surface scratches and specks front and back, minor dent at marking on back; interior plastic covers are clear but slightly warped.
Honiton lace is specific to an English town in East Devon, close to the River Otter. It's a fascinating craft whereby human hands function like spiders making an intricate web! The maker uses threads hung on bobbins to make a twisted lace that's then sewn onto net to form natural shapes like flowers and insects.
