Ebay Alerts! Three Items – December 26, 2010

http://tinyurl.com/2g4n3gn Magnificent Antique Filet Lace Table Runner circa 1920s
Starting price: $112.50 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: ~ Dec 31st
Offered by: Ebay Seller cork123, Cleveland, Ohio
Comments: Filet works aren’t easy – there is so much second-rate material out there, and there are few good resources for the collector on the subject.  And it is extremely difficult to attribute a source for any of these objects. But I like this one a lot – bold, innovative design with a definite Arts & Crafts appeal. Good embroidery technique with well finished edges. Condition appears excellent.

Sold for $112.50

Starting price: $405.00
Auction ends: Dec 29, 2010 05:17:23 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London
Comments: A nice bobbinlace applique shawl, looks like machine net (pretty sure, not enough closeups to tell 100%). Pieces like this frequently suffer over the years from laundering,  rust and tears in weak net. This one looks in very good condition, and shows signs of a few small repairs. Edges look a bit frayed in some places. Nice cohesive design – a good example of the genre, but nothing spectacular.

Did not sell.

Starting price: $45.00
Auction ends: Dec 28, 2010 16:55:24 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London
Comments: The lace itself is a fairly standard Duchess-Point de Gaze Rosepoint, which was often commercially marketed as Duchesse de Bruxelles when it was made (later in the 19th c). But the form is quite interesting. I’m guessing that the long lappets are meant to edge the front opening of the dress, which might put this piece in the late 19th early 20th centuries.  I see a few small brown spots, but overall very good condition.

Sold for $1,200.00, 4 bidders
