Heirloom Collar

This collar was crocheted by Annie's sister-in-law, Mary (wife of Frank).  It was my grandmother Annie's (wife of Joe). 

It was forgotten in a dresser drawer at her auction.  She gave it to me.

You're very lucky to have it.
When I was living in Italy (back in the 1970s) an acquaintance of mine whose mother still followed the old ways, had a chest full of pieces of lace, an embroidered table cloth and sheets which her mother had been commissioning from the nuns over the years. It was given to her when she got married.
