> Rare book for precious lace
It is indeed a very rare book that the Lace Manufactures’ Museum has just acquired; missing from the Collective Catalogue of France and from the National Library of France . It is the second great collection of antique lace still present in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century: the one belonging to Helen Vieweg-Brockhaus.
Hélène Vieweg-Brockhaus (1835-1909) as well as her husband Rudolf Vieweg-, both came from a family of publishers. They both shared a passion for the Arts.
She managed to gather lace pieces from the 16th to the 19th century, of good quality and perfectly preserved, also some items of great size. The exceptional character of the Vieweg collection lies also in the variety of different styles and types of lace.
His book can be seen at the documentation centre of the museum, 33(0)4-71-59-41-63
