I hoped I had a photograph of this piece when it was new, but in the end had to take a picture of it now. The pattern is from 'Tatting from Burda', adjusted as to size. The ring at the outside is a bottom lampshade ring - that is, it is the ring that holds the bottom of a lampshade open. The advantage of these rings is that they come in lots of different sizes - and they are cheap. The result is a piece that can be hung on a wall or in a window. This one was hung in a north-facing window but has still deteriorated and faded considerably.
