Welcome to Chantilly Dreams, an exquisite collection of antique and vintage handmade lace, bridal lace, heirloom linens, fine antique porcelain and china, as well as vintage sewing patterns, sewing antiques and more for the enthusiast or the serious collector.
collections are carefully chosen from countries around the world
that have mastered meticulously handcrafted lace and
embroidered textiles such as France, England, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Germany
and Malta. Featured are pieces that epitomize rarity, historical
significance, and quality of handmade craftsmanship. I am passionate
about preserving historical lace, linens, and other treasures for future generations,
and committed to raising awareness regarding their value as art.
I am always interested in acquiring the types of items I offer at Chantilly Dreams, whether it's one special piece or an entire estate. Occasionally exceptional items are accepted on consignment. I am enthusiastic about antique lace from the 16th Century to the 19th Century, as well as fine linens, textiles, lace fans, and antique & fine vintage apparel.
