"Irish crochet lace is an invention of rather recent date, first produced in Ireland about the middle of last century in imitation of old Venetian point. It was first used like Venetian point for trimming articles of dress and household linen. Later on it came into favour for curtains, bed-spreads and dress-skirts.
For a time the making of Irish crochet lace remained a domestic industry confined to the neighbourhood of Dublin and Belfast, then as the demand for it increased and the Irish supply no longer sufficed, it found its way about 1900 to the Eastern departments of France, where it has undergone so many changes and improvements as to rival in all respects the most beautiful laces of modern days..."
