Irish Crochet Lace in Austria and France

Large amounts of Irish crochet lace were produced in Austria and France in the early twentieth century. 

Even though Irish motifs and techniques were adopted at the start, they were used in very different and often dramatic ways.  The motifs were often three-dimensional and were arranged in large areas of various grounds.

The many wonderful illustrations of 25 items largely tell the story and are big enough to work from. 

Design strategies and techniques are considered and a few patterns are included to provide inspiration for and assistance to crochet lacemakers.
