Maltese collar

This collar is made of cream silk and the tallies are short and fat. That suggests that it may be Maltese lace even though there is no Maltese cross. But it may be English Maltese.

There are flowers with petals made from tallies, and other clusters of tallies. There are plaits or twisted pairs connecting things. The flowers part has been stitched onto the inner part.

This collar is too big to fit in my scanner (which is how I am reproducing the lace) so I can only show part of it to the right. The entire collar is photographed below to show its shape.
