Here are the better pictures I promised. 

The background cottons are tea dyed, hence the shading – its not shadows.
I couldn’t bring myself to tea dye the collar as its in wonderful condition.

General consensus is that it’s turn of the 20th century, more likely Edwardian than Victorian and hand made.
I’d like to think I’ve given it a new lease of life.

    Such wonderful detail in these photos – love the soft, grayed reds and the white-white lace against them.
