Ebay Alerts! Six Items – January 13, 2011

http://tinyurl.com/4kuvb7p ANTIQUE LACE HANDMADE IRISH YOUGHAL NEEDLE LACE C 1880
Starting price: $49.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 16, 2011 14:50:10 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris and Palm Beach
Comments: Border of Irish Youghal needlelace.  Just over five feet long, which is unusual. Not a very exciting design, but a good, basic piece.

$49.99, reserve not made, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/472b8s4 ANTIQUE LACE 8 HANDMADE POINT DE VENISE COASTERS ANGELS
Starting price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 16, 2011 17:48:38 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris and Palm Beach
Comments: Something for the collector of table linens. Nice work, I think Italian, the stitches look like Burano. But I’m thrown by the buttonholed cordonnet, Burano is normally has an overcast border. Good workmanship.

Sold for $81.00, 6 bidders.

Starting price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 18, 2011 08:50:23 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London and New York
Comments: Excellent large Flemish border.  I won’t venture a guess on the date, this type of lace was made over a long time period. It is really beautiful.

$433.99, 6 bidders, reserve not met.

http://tinyurl.com/4e7z9dv IRISH CROCHET FRONTED CHRISTENING GOWN 19th C RARE
Starting price: $30.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 22, 201115:00:01 PST
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay Seller eastayton, London
Comments: Anne has some beautiful pieces up this week – it’s hard to choose. I love this little gown, with the very fine knotted guipure Irish crochet horseshoe pattern. The use of the lace is lavish and very effective, due to the small scale of the motifs.

$152.50, did not make reserve, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4v5dgyq CHANTILLY HAND MADE BOBBIN LACE FAN WITH BOX 19th C
Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 22, 2011 15:50:01 PST
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay Seller eastayton, London
Comments: Good Chantilly fan – very nicely contrasting sticks. Condition looks excellent, other than a break in the ring at the bottom of the sticks.  Good artwork in the lace, quite a fine design.

Sold for $662.12, 14 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4gefqe7 ENGLISH HONITON BOBBIN LACE SUPERB QUALITY 19th C
Starting price: $30.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 22, 2011 16:10:01 PST
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay Seller eastayton, London
Comments: Wonderful Honiton guipure – some kind of border. The rose footside is unusual.  Only problem is that it is cut at one end, but given the quality I think that is minor.

Sold for $841.77, 12 bidders.
