Auction ends: Jan 23, 2011 18:01:07 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach Florida
Comments: This Lepoglava colored lace is a typical design. It’s basically a tape lace with some torchon elements. We need more technical manuals on this lace (Bandkant uit Lepoglava by de la Bie, Haas, and Troost is about all I can find – see http://tinyurl.com/4v3gl3z). Of course Lepoglava is in Croatia these days.

Sold for $85.00, 1 bidder.

Starting price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 25, 2011 06:45:26 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, New York and London
Comments: I think it’s a Belgian venise-type needlelace appliqued on machine net. I look at a design like this and think ‘War Lace’. Maybe. Wish there was a provenance. The shield does look like the Belgian Lion. Seems to have a few rust spots, but I can’t see any damage from the photos.

Sold for $595.00, 2 bidders.

Auction ends: (Jan 25, 2011 17:15:01 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach Florida
Comments: Flemish or Italian? Often hard to tell. I’ll endorse the seller on this one with Italian. Sometimes the elaborate header or footer attachment tends more toward Italy – Flemish pieces seem to be plainer.

Sold for $178.50, 2 bidders.

Starting price: $44.00 Buy it Now
Auction ends: Jan 25, 2011 21:26:27 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller therookandtheraven, Santa Cruz, California
Comments: Not a particularly exceptional Irish Crochet collar, work seems a little loose. Except for one thing. It has a needlelace ground, of what looks to be the Alençon fond. Interesting.  Good condition.

Unsold.
