The museum's exhibit includes a display area recreating a Belgian lace school from early in the 20th century, complete with period photos, costumes, and samples of lace.
The exhibit also features selected items from the museum's own collection of Belgian lace. From This Day Forward Opened January 2016 Some twentieth century brides selected spectacular gowns for a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Although Belgian lace schools and workshops had largely disappeared by the mid-1900s, lace making continues in Belgium today as a cottage industry, particularly in tourist centers.
The museum's second exhibit of 2016, "The Lacemakers of Belgium," highlights the lives and work of these artisans from more than a century ago.
It was last weekend that George was wrapped in the family heirloom for his christening at his local church, St James, in Teignmouth, Devon.
His mother Laura, 29, a teacher, said: 'Elizabeth was a seamstress and it was beautifully made from cotton and lace and it is still exquisite, a work of art.'It's such a beautiful dress and considering it is 125 years old it is in an amazing condition.
We want more children and they'll all get christened using the gown.
Next in line: George's grandmother Elaine Parfitt wore the gown in 1950 (left) and his great-uncle John was baptised wearing it in 1963 (right)'Originally it was made as an ordinary day dress, but was so lovely the family began to use it as a christening gown, and the tradition has carried on ever since.'Brendan's mother Elaine, 59, was christened in the gown at Coombe Down Church near Bath, Somerset, in 1950.
