Unidentified Doiley

Several years ago I found this Doiley for $2 in a local Opportunity Shop:

Unidentified Doiley

And I know someone on the 'big" Crazy Quilting Mailing List identified it for me - but I have lost those e-mails in a computer meltdown.

I know it was specific to a European city - maybe is Czechoslovakia???? And that there were on some large webpage that had details of many other forms of lace.

Is there anyone out there who can point me in the right direction??? I haven't cut it up, yet, and think this may be one that manages to outwit my scissors.

This looks like a pattern I just got from Nordic Needle. Search on Hungarian if the addy doesn't work.
