Starting price: $49.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 02, 2011 18:24:26 PST
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach, United States
Comments: Large (6-1/2″ x 68″) length of 17th century Italian Gros Point. It has the confused look you get when Gros Point has been made up from the motifs of several different examples. At least it saves what it can. All inter-motif brides are missing, and the header and footer are replacements. Nonetheless, the workmanship is very good, showing excellent examples of sculpted raised edges. Practically every technique used in needlelace was invented in Gros Point.

Comments: ~11″ in diameter, modern Ñanduti with vibrant colors from Itauguá, Paraguay. This seller is showing other pieces of this type of work, Ebay #170606751743. It is unfair to compare pieces like this with the earlier finer ones, lacemakers today are operating under much different conditions of thread availability and design demand. Traditional techniques are there, but interpreted in the vibrant colors typical of emboideries coming from this area, and worked with a little looser stitch. And we need more colored laces!
