Battenberg lace is a type of tape lace. The name for this American lace was chosen in honour of a wedding of the Battenberg family, which occurred about the time a patent for making the lace was applied for at Washington. Originally Battenberg lace was heavier than the other machine tape laces such as Princess lace.
Some regard Battenberg ace as a type of Renaissance lace. Others regard Renaissance Lace as a different type of tape lace.
