These are quite beautifully made, both embroidered and plain stitching. It is unusual to find the attachment on braces.
minutely embroidered in tent stitch with stylised flowers and leaves in shades of rust, pink, blue, yellow and green silks on a natural fine mesh ground, edged with blue silk with a ric rac stich, the front end attachments of ivory silk and elastic, the back attachments similar but with steel buckles and fastened to small bone buttons to a central inverted ^ piece, the backs of ivory silk with some ivory kid round the backs of the buttonholes, 2 1/4 x 31 in or 5.5 x 79 cm
The embroidery is very good, just one slight pale ivory mark to one side of the silk. The front attachments have a few slight tan coloured markings. The elastic has some light brown marks. The backs have a few light markings. Ask for photos.
