Notes: I can find nothing more than the title.
Drouot is an organization of auction houses throughout France, including their main facility, the Hôtel Drouot in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. Established in 1852, Hôtel Drouot held a monopoly on French antiques auctions until legal reforms opened the way for international competition in 2000. The Gazette Drouot http://www.gazette-drouot.com/ lists upcoming auctions, and I will post those which indicate lace offerings.
Online bidding: All bidders must first register with Drouot. Go to https://drouotonline.webzone-secure.org/creationdecompte to create an account. Login at http://www.drouotonline.com/ for online auctions, or http://www.drouotlive.com/ for live auctions on the net. You also have to register for individual auctions. I haven’t tried this yet, so please comment if you have experience. There are many videos (in French) explaining the process:
