Youghal Needlelace Panel With Harps & Musical Notes

Youghal Needlelace Panel With
Harps & Musical Score
Formerly owned in 1860 by The 5th Earl 
Spencer known as Viscount Althorp 
Earl Spencer was twice Lord Lieutenant 
of Ireland 
This is a very interesting and unique Youghal
Lace Flounce, as it has a little musical
score worked into the design. 
Along with all the beautiful swirling leaves
and flowers which are usually present in
Youghal Lace.

The Flounce Measures 32x263 cm

Try this on the piano and see if you can identify
the tune 

How intriguing musical lace !
