application lace


application lace
French  Point Appliqué,  
 lace in which motifs (flowers and the like) are worked individually and then joined to a net background (whether made by machine or by hand), in contrast to the method in which the net is worked round the solid parts of the design and the whole lace worked as a single piece without joins. In the 19th century application lace was made especially at Brussels and, in England, at Honiton. The method shortened the time required for production by employing a team of women, each a specialist in a certain procedure, simultaneously on the same piece of lace.
