Strip of needle lace with three medallion motifs and tendrils, Strip of natural colored needle lace: point de France. In an apparent maze of volutes and flower buds different symmetrical compositions can be distinguished, including volutes that form cartouches and that surround a rosette flower or further down a heart with a rosette flower underneath. The motifs are made with festival stitches and decorative stitches. Very light relief has been achieved by the way in which a part of the volutes is made and around the flat fixed motifs. The motifs are connected to each other by painted bars
