Scalloped needle and bobbin lace collar decorated with worked lace roses, floral sprigs, leaves, sunflowers and scroll and wheel decorations. The collar is currently sewn to the neckline of the wedding dress 2000.439.1, which may be a later alteration. The neckline of the collar is banded, while the hem is finished with a repeating scallop.
