Size: 10.5 cm x 80 cm
Starting Price: 1.00 EUR
Auction ends: Oct 12, 2012 06:43:04 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller vellapremium, languedoc roussillon , France
Comments: An ~4″ wide border of Alençon with a design typical of the later 19th century. Probably the brides tortillée above, réseau fin below. There are a few modes of various patterns, some picoted rings. The twisted rempli is typical of this period. One end looks like the original start or end point, can’t see the other end. The condition looks very good from what I can see in the photos.

Comments: See my piece on collecting French Santon lacemakers at http://tinyurl.com/8jjuscy. This one is from the workshop of Maryse Di Landro in Aubagne. It is one of the more realistic pieces, and the Le Puy type pillow is nicely done. The threads and bobbins seem a bit tangled, but overall good condition.

Comments: I’ll give this one the benefit of the doubt and call it handmade. Photos aren’t really close enough to tell, but it has a good feel. Pretty standard later 19th c border, very regular and close work. Seller doesn’t comment on condition, but looks very good from the given photos.

Offered by: Ebay seller petticoatlanes2011, Amherst, NH, United States
Comments: I’d say it’s more a square shawl, Honiton applique on machine net. It gets lots of points for excellent condition, and the tulle net looks wonderful with a great drape. The motifs are a bit larger and the tulle a little whiter and heavier than contemporary Brussels work, also note the tally fillings in the motifs. It is a little more advanced than snails/slugs era, but not too much.

Offered by: Ebay seller oooptafagv, lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse fan leaf with a nice off-center Point de Gaze insert (no raised rose petals). The Duchesse has a rather wild spray of motifs which I find charming. A little wrinkled, but it doesn’t look like it’s ever been mounted. I see a few minor broken spots here and there, nothing major. Overall good condition.

Auction ends: Oct 14, 2012 08:07:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller atelier1900, Selkirk, United Kingdom
Comments: A Maltese rectangular piece, might be a shawl. Three roundels with the Maltese cross in the center, guipure and woven leaf ground, and a simple geometric pattern on the outside. Nicely made, in good condition, but I don’t find the design all that inspiring. It’s just a little off-normal for Maltese.

Comments: Probably a Bruges bloemwerk collar, although the filling detail is a bit unusual. It could almost go over into the Italian tape lace tradition, but not quite. Double picoted brides form the ground, and overall it has a nice bold look. Condition seems very good, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

Comments: An Irish crochet collar of simple form and very nice workmanship. The motifs have raised elements and are tightly worked. Could be Clones knots on the brides, but the photos aren’t close enough to tell for sure. Beautiful symmetry to the design and overall very good condition. Nice piece.

Comments: A Youghal handkerchief, with an effective but uncomplicated design of leaves. Good decorative work on the solid parts, nicely offset by an open mesh shading effect in the leaves. Very few decorative fillings. Overall condition is good, I see a few minor holes in the leaves up toward the upper right, nothing serious.

Comments: A Chantilly fan with pierced ebony sticks retailed from Tiffany’s. The condition is excellent – not the lace has been backed by some white material, probably silk which is a good protection. Good figural Chantilly doesn’t come up that often. Note the interesting little circles above the putti, not sure how those were made. Might be an embroidery – unusual.
