From the Publisher:
******This exhibition catalogue is the result of a two year research project by the Jewish Museum in Prague. Showcasing 70 items, it features the most important examples of predominantly metal thread laces in the museum's collections.
It is divided into three sections: Lace on Synagogue Textiles, Shpanyer Arbet, Wedding Covers and Garments. As well as detailed full colour photographs, the catalogue also contains a number of patterns and designs of vintage laces dating from the 17th-19th centuries.******
