This piece of antique lace is beaded with mother of pearl beads. I have never seen beading done using mother of pearl beads before. I wonder what this unique, detailed piece was made for--an evening purse, a bridal gown?

Yesterday I went out prop hunting and stopped by one of my favorite resale shops. There I found a framed Emerson quote and a Phrenology bust. The Phrenology bust turned out to be quite a find. Research unearthed that these unusual pieces were given to doctors in the late 50s and 60s by pharmaceutical companies and were signed Boehm (fine porcelain).
