Ebay Alerts! Eight items – December 16, 2010

http://tinyurl.com/29lbquo Uraltes Klöppelkissen mit Ständer+Zubehör um 1910 !!
Current offer: 58.00 EUR, 6 bids
Auction ends: Dec 19, 2010 11:23:46 PST
Offered by: Ebay Seller sammeln123, Chemnitz, Germany
Comments: A wonderful Art Nouveau Klöppelständer – quite an innovative form. German stands come up for sale all the time, but the Art Nouveau ones are very rare. I’m guessing that the pegs used to fix the height of the inner piece are missing, or might be in the bag of bobbins? Otherwise, apart from a few scratches, condition looks good.

Sold for 234.99 EUR

Current offer: $299.95 Buy it Now
Auction ends: ~Jan 13, 2011
Offered by: Ebay Seller kenpa, New Jersey, USA
Comments: The classic 2-volume English version of Elisa Ricci’s Antiche Trine Italiane (1908). See Bianca Rosa Bellomo’s outstanding Italian site http://tinyurl.com/28slnfq for everything you ever wanted to know about Elisa Ricci.
This translation, published in 1913 remains one of the best references on Italian lace, and the photography is great. It has recently been reprinted (poorly), and also scanned in for publication on the web at several sites (see the Arizona Textile Library version at http://tinyurl.com/2flundj).

Comments: Yet another Point de Gaze-type Belgian needlelace handkerchief. I like this one, good design paying attention to overall effect rather than just adding frills. Condition appears very good.

Auction ends: Dec 19, 2010 18:11:49 PST
Offered by: Ebay Seller adtjmd, Hickory, North Carolina
Comments: Interesting piece, looks very Belgian, maybe Liersekant? It is an applique of a net-like material fixed with tambour stitches. A few small holes, but overall looks good.

Did not sell.

http://tinyurl.com/2d7u8eh RARE MALTESE LACE FAN W/MOTHER OF PEARL ENGRAVED STICKS
Current offer: $45.00, no bids, reserve not met
Auction ends: Dec 20, 2010 04:43:38 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay Seller mithya, London-New York
Comments: Maltese fans don’t come up too often-I think the lace is sometimes a bit too heavy to be really practical. This is a nice example with a central pattern typical of Gozo work, which can also be a lot lighter than other Maltese designs. Condition looks very good.

$102.51, reserve not met.

http://tinyurl.com/2dcm235 ANTIQUE LACE- CIRCA 19THC. LILLE LACE APRON
Current offer: $225.00, no bids
Auction ends: Dec 20, 2010 16:28:34 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay Seller mithya, London-New York
Comments: An impressive, unusual piece.  Seller warns about condition, but it looks pretty good from the photos.

Sold for $483.99

http://tinyurl.com/2d356eg ANTIQUE LACE-CIRCA 1770,FINE MECHLIN LACE
Current offer: $45.00, no bids, reserve not met
Auction ends: Dec 20, 2010 06:03:17 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay Seller mithya, London-New York
Comments: Nice 2nd quarter 18th c Mechlin length – narrow but very long. Snowflake fillings. I’m thinking that the picot edge might be a later addition – not enough closeup photos to tell definitively. It’s a common 19th c ‘improvement’ since the slight picots of the original weren’t in fashion. Usually not difficult to remove, if desired.

Sold for $295.00
