Lace was once popular as a symbol of wealth and power among the aristocracy of Europe. This exhibit primarily showcases pieces from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries —the golden age of lace— from the enormous collection of tens of thousands of pieces of Diane Claeys, a global antique lace collector and appraiser.
