{Acrylic Frame with Transparent Acrylic BOLTS & NUTS}

As written already earlier, I did find in Milan, Italy these Transparent Acrylic BOLTS & NUTS to use with the Acrylic Frames. A perfect way for preserving your antique heirloom lace work from Grandma or other relative. No more worries about staining it or being afraid to use it at all. This is a unique way to display antique lace against a dark brick or wooden wall or as a window hanging. What do you think? 
  • Perfect for hanging on a brick wall or on a wooden back ground. LINK for Purchase is below post.

  • Or for hanging in the window...

  • View by night.

Simple framing between two sheets of clear acrylic and fastened with the transparent Italian Bolts & Nuts. 
Nothing takes away from the beauty of the antique French knotted filet lace with cherubs.
On my on line boutique I do offer two of these, they could be hung facing each other or used individually.
I have not charged anything for the tedious crocheting around these antique pieces.
Sorry, both are SOLD OUT...

Just wanted to present them to others as an example of what can be done with any antique heirloom piece of lace. 

The advantage of this acrylic is also that it is safe for shipping. Of course, glass could be used as well, if someone would prefer that. 
Do you like it? 
Would you have some pieces of lace for displaying this way?

Ask if you want to purchase some of the Transparent Acrylic Bolt and Nuts for use with Acrylic Frames of your own!

    I hope you are having a wonderful week, my friend.

    1. Dearest Miyako san,
      It is not knitted but this is antique French needle lace. My contribution only was the crocheted edging in order to preserve this great piece better. Have a lovely fall week.

    2. Oh, my dear friend;
      I've misread your post. Thank you very much for letting me realize it. It sure is a long way to learn English, my sweet friend (^^;)

  7. Olá

    Que bonito trabalho! E que ideia tão original! Gostei muito.
    Continuação de bonitos trabalhos.


  8. Oh my stars ~ I can't believe you stitched that! How intricate. I have a frame just like this one. It's great for displaying things isn't it? Very lovely Mariette!
    xo Catherine

    1. No Catherine, I did NOT stitch that. It is a French antique filet lace in linen stitch, done on hand knotted net. This I only cleaned up and added the crocheted edging before framing it like this.
      Do you also have those transparent acrylic bolts & nuts on your frame? Would love to know...

  9. Dear Mariette,
    Such a lovely lace, and I think the frame is great. I like it as a window hanging.

  10. This looks stunning and you are right ... takes nothing away from the original piece!! Most fabulous and creative idea .. thank you for sharing... Hugs to you both...xo C. (HHL)

  11. Erg mooi idee om het kant op deze manier te presenteren......ik heb zelf geen kant, maar mijn oma heeft heel veel kant. Prachtig, vooral bij het avondlicht.
    Liefs Bianca xx

  12. I loveeeee that gorgeous piece of lace Mariette, and the you have it displayed is simply stunning my friend ;)


  13. Hi Mariette, I love the framing! The lace looks gorgeous with brick background and hanging in the window is great idea too! It must look beautiful when seen from outside of the window, especially in the night time with light on inside the house.

  14. Liebe Mariette,

    das ist ein so wundervolles Motiv - ich liebe Engel und hab selber viele im Haus -

    lg. Ruth

  15. What a great idea and lovely angels.


  16. What a beautiful way to display such a beautiful piece Mariette! I love it against the window pane:)

  17. Dearest Mariette,
    I always know you has that something special and now we know why special thinking about it??
    It was a lovely antique lase from grandma with girl and boys has beautiful birds with antique view by night.
    Would be nice to have myself in one night??
    Hugs and Love to you always!

  18. Hej Mariëtte, ik was er even een paar dagen tussenuit en heb dus een aantal berichtjes gemist. Dit ziet er heel mooi uit, een hele leuke en handige manier om zulk prachtig handwerk te laten zien.
    Fijne zondag, lieve groet


Thanks for your visit and comment.
