Bucks Point

Bucks Point is a style of bobbin lace associated with Buckinghamshire in England, although it was made elsewhere. It is made on a hexagonal grid (although the angles vary) rather than a square grid, like Torchon. It was copied by machine lace quite early, which is why I think the East Midland lacemaking areas took up other styles such as Cluny or Beds Maltese.

Here is an example of Bucks Point from my lace collection (although, as I am not an expert, some of my identification may be wrong). Click on a picture below to go to a page about the piece, with a large scale image.
