NIM 1966-43

Built by Peter Scattergood of Stapleford in around 1869, this warp lace machine was employed making cotton laces, nets and veiling, at Truman’s Factory, Ilkeston Junction and later W. Beardsley in Stapleford. The knitted laces produced on warp machines like this, were the forerunner of the later Raschel lace machines most widely in production today.
