“On the charm of lace, as beauty’s aid, it is hardly necessary to dwell: all acknowledge the graceful and softening effect of filmy ruffles and delicate webs of flax thread. Never does an old lady look so charming as when she drapes her head and shoulders with old lace, and never are the charms of youth and beauty so apparent as when enhanced with lace.”–A History of Handmade Lace by Mrs. F. Nevill Jackson (1900) 

Oh, those turn of the century sensibilities!
