Starting price: $49.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 20, 2011 17:48:20 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris and Palm Beach
Comments: Very good Belgian needlelace handkerchief – I like the monogram work. Design is quite nice.  Jour fillings are pretty standard with 3 loose spots as noted by the seller. Overall nice condition. I like the closeup photos that show the linking between the edge picots – a very Belgian technique.

Sold for $570.00, 5 bidders.

Starting price: $49.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 21, 2011 16:17:56 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris and Palm Beach
Comments: Nice Belgian needlelace fan,  ‘Rosepoint’ (with raised rose petals). Looks in very good condition, other than 1 broken stick. Design looks a bit heavy to me, but that is often the case when trying to use raised roses on a fan where the material needs to be very supple.

Sold for $510.10, 6 bidders.

Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 22, 2011 16:30:01 PST
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay Seller eastayton, London
Comments: Now this is an extremely interesting piece. It is a copy (you would not have found this fan form in the 18th century) of an earlier Devon bobbinlace style. It was illustrated in the exhibition catalog ‘450 Years of Lace’ from the Devon Allhallows museum. It goes to show that the lacemakers of the mid 19th century were certainly capable of doing good copies of earlier laces.

Sold for $543.00, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4z6r6x3 HUNGARY LACE 1960. 5 DIFFERENT COMPLETE SHEETS.CTO.
Starting price on both: 2.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jan 24, 2011 04:47:47 PST, Jan 24, 201104:50:32 PST
Offered by: Ebay Seller robstamps47, Rochester, Kent, UK
Comments: Full panes of lace-related stamps are hard to find. In both 1960 and 1964, Hungary issued 8 stamps honoring Halas lace. These listings offer 5 full panes out of the 8 for both years.  Condition looks very good.  (An additional set of 6 were issued in 1960, but those are different from these).

Both sold for 2.99 GBP, 1 bidder.

Starting price: 100.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jan 24, 2011 12:14:44 PST
Offered by: Ebay Seller verrebois, France
Comments: I think this one might be correct. Many sellers offer French ‘lacemaker lamps’, and the subject is just as confused as it is in English. You look for a large bulb with an opening to pour in the water – stands come separately. These devices were used by many trades where a focused light was needed.

Sold for 100 EUR, 1 bidder.
