An exquisite piece of whitework, featuring drawn thread work, embroidery and I think tatting on the edge - looks too tiny to be crochet work....but I am not an expert on this. This pic doesn't do the doiley justice. My first scan was completely washed out, so I put the purple tissue paper underneath the next time, but apart from the fact that you can see the stitching a bit better, it still doesn't show the overall beauty of the piece. The lady in the shop glanced disparagingly at it and said "oh, twenty cents for that".

Verrry nice. The edge is crochet, and from here, the leaf is drawn threadwork but the flower is an exquisite section of inserted crochet.
