A 17thC century bobbin lace made in Antwerp, which then was mostly shipped to Spanish America. It originally featured a representation of the Annunciation; this design was lost over time, so that now the best-known Antwerp lace only includes the pots and vases that were once just a minor motif; the lace is also now known as pot lace (Potten Kant). Antwerp lace and Mechlin lace were at one point both known as Flanders lace.
