This lace collar is made in Irish Youghal lace (also known as point d'Irlande). It's a needle lace inspired by Italian needle lace and was first developed in Youghal, County Cork, Ireland.  This type of needle lace went into decline after World War 1 and there are very few practitioners left who do this kind of work.  Image courtesy of http://www.stellaniforos.com/p/archive.html
