Fig. 43. Unfinished Work of a Spanish Nun
Bury Palliser History of Lace (London: Sampson Low, Son & Marston, 1865), p.81.
We have lately received from Rome photographs of some curious relics of old Spanish conventual work parchment patterns with the lace in progress. They were found in the convent of Jesu Bambino, and belonged to some Spanish nuns who, in bygone ages, taught the art to the novices. None of the present inmates can give further information respecting them.
