Machine lace with different thicknesses of thread

Bobbin lace is made of threads of the same thickness, except for gimps. Machine lace is frequently made with different thickness of thread. It often uses very thin thread to bind together the thicker, more visible thread.

These are examples of this type of machine lace in my collection. Click on a picture below to go to a page about the piece, with a large scale image.
