Louise 'Lucy' Consistre's rose doily enlargement of leaf and rose

Enlargment of the leaf and rose section of the doily.

Both the leaves and the two tone roses are all tatted in blocks of 4 rings with 4 double stitches between picots or joins. (Note: In the original the number of ds in these rings varied; it was either 4 or 5 ds but the difference is nearly impossible to spot.)
