“Royal Wedding Gifts: Queen Victoria’s Appreciation for Limerick Lace”

The Sovereign, Queen Victoria, is often called upon to provide wedding presents for the numerous minor German Royalties, with whom she shares ties of blood.

Previously, these gifts often included lengths of Scottish products from the Highland Industries Association. However, according to well-authenticated rumor, Her Majesty has now added Limerick Lace to her list of suitable wedding gifts. Reportedly, several beautiful Limerick Lace pieces, purchased by the Queen during her recent visit to Ireland, are en route to adorn the trousseaux of certain Royal brides. This not only showcases the Queen’s appreciation for Limerick craftsmanship but also promotes and supports the Limerick lace industry.
