Auction ends: November 27, 2016  7:34 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller supa_troopa, Redditch, Worcestershire, United Kingdom
Comments: A triangular Chantilly shawl. Fairly large motifs in the central floral design, in other places the motifs are more compact. No ombre shading. It can be difficult to maintain constant tension over large areas of half-stitch, and it’s nicely handled here. There’s no photo of the piece spread out, but you can see some nicely handled strapwork along the edges.
Provenance: None cited.

Offered by: Ebay seller mummybuffy, Plymouth, United Kingdom
Comments: See also a matching, but slightly shorter length #291948684212.
Early 19th c Alençon border.  This is similar to but lighter than the later 8th c ‘Herren’ Alençon. It has 8 rows of ‘esprits’ in the form of small buds, and a single flower in the pointed scallops. This is a much more feminine design than earlier pieces, and is meant to be ruffled. The flowers have some decorative stitches in the clothwork, and ‘modes’ are limited to single or double rings.
Provenance: From a Cornish estate
Date: 3rd quarter 19th c.
Condition:
Modifications: One end cut, can’t see the other end. Engrelure added.
Damage: Réseau fin looks in good condition (unusual for a piece of this age) although seller cites ‘one or two stretches’ with no further details. The leaves in the lower flowers look to have holes, not enough closeups to really examine this.
Soilage: Looks clean.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Tightly woven and decorated clothwork as well as numerous fillings make this example very high in quality.

Starting Price: £130.00
Auction ends: November 28, 2016  11:14 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: This seller has several handkerchiefs from this collection. They are largely made up of early laces re-purposed as handkerchief edges (#332038687639, #232150942102, #332038702948). One with a Mechlin edge, #232155335710, has a more original work, even though the Mechlin is in the style of the mid 18th c.
I’ve been staring at this Valenciennes handkerchief for some time trying to decide if something similar is going on.  Many of the motifs (largely fleur de lis) do not match well in the pattern, however any joins are extremely well done.
Provenance: From a collection put together by Peggy, the Marchioness of Crewe, her great aunt, Lucy Cohen, and Peggy’s daughter, Mary, the 9th Duchess of Roxburghe.

Comments: A round hole Valenciennes border. It has the look of 3rd quarter 18th c, plain clothwork with ‘line drawing’ to define the motifs. But it could be a later copy.  Would be nice to determine the fiber, linen or cotton.

Auction ends: November 28, 2016  12:20 PM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller garden*hill, Reading, United Kingdom
Comments: I agree with the seller, these lappets have the feel of English Devon. Not quite as refined in design as contemporary Belgian examples. Motifs are made separately, connected with small brides, and they have the same snowflake fillings as Belgian work.  However an exact attribution is very difficult. See the example in the second photo of a set from my own collection, which I feel a little more confident in an English origin. But not much.

Comments: In the past two weeks a number of exceptionally long, excellent laces have appeared on Ebay, found by the seller in the Netherlands as a family collection stored in a box. Some are already on their way to join my own collection.  From the condition and general style I’m guessing these might date from around WWI.  This example is a Rosaline Perlé length, and the perls look needle-made.

Administrative: Away for awhile

Apologies for the few posts lately.  I had to make a trip to Minneapolis to help out my mother who has recently been released from the hospital. I’ll be here for a few weeks, and will gradually get caught up.

Thanks!
