Auburn, Cayuga County, New York, United States, North and Central America
1870s - early 20th century
A women’s collar made of machine-woven off-white linen or cotton gauze with machine-made lacework trim. The collar is made of gauze with the bottom edge trimmed in a scalloped eyelet motif. At each corner is a motif of a highly stylized floral leafy vine in cutwork and also with scalloped eyelet edges. The top band of the collar is longer so it can be closed at the neck without inhibiting the designs in the corners.
