Offered by: David & Christine Springett, Ebay seller springettbobbins, Rugby, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
Comments: This piece is very similar to examples that Brian Lemin used in his piece on lacemaker’s lamps on Lace Fairy (http://lace.lacefairy.com/Lace/Gallery/LaceLamps.html).  Rare, yes, although a complete stand with 5 globes and central lamp was sold through Ebay in May 2006. The condition and overall presence of the Springett set is quite remarkable – an amazing set.

Sold for 1827.00 GBP, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4gmfxkb ANTIQUE LACE VERY WIDE LONG FLOUNCE H/M CHANTILLY LACE
Starting price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Feb 21, 2011 16:55:02 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach, United States
Comments: Good wide (23″), long (8-3/4 yards) Chantilly flounce. I don’t find the design too inspiring, it almost looks like two separate flounce designs merged together in the interest of size. I’m also not too taken with the large areas of half stitch – a little bland in places. But overall this is a nice piece. A few condition issues, and seller says it is a bit ‘stiff’. Not sure what that means.

Sold for $650.00, 4 bidders.
