Lace picchvais became very popular during a short-period of time in the late 19th and early 20th century after the introduction of lace making machines during the second half of the 19th century. They were manufactured in Europe. Nottingham, Scotland or even Germany have been suggested as production centres (Madhuvanti Ghose (ed.), Gates of the Lord, The Tradition of Krishna Paintings, Chicago, 2015, cat.41, p.101)
