Auction ends: Apr 13, 2011 09:15:08 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller stekveugel, Torhout, Belgium
Comments: This is the smallest size Van de Voorde Flemish Pottery lacemaker. Condition looks good from the photos, but I’m not sure what the line “stoel 1 sport !!!” means. Perhaps a flaw in the chair?

   Sold for 18 EUR, 1 bidder.

Comments: Good Irish Crochet collar. Four motifs – 2 different flowers and 2 different trefoils.  Good raised work, especially in flower centers. Nice quality, good condition, although I can’t tell if it was bleached.

   Did not sell.

Auction ends: Apr 14, 2011 04:51:21 PDT
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Long, wide Chantilly flounce. Typical flower and swag design, no ombré shading. Seller indicates a few openings in the net, no details, and not enough photos to tell. What is shown looks very good.

   $102.50, reserve not met, 2 bidders.
Relisted as Ebay item #160574752888.

http://tinyurl.com/3lz3z8r Loupe de dentellière. Velay. Fin 18 ème. Début 19 ème.
Size: 12 cm diameter, 14.5 cm height
Starting price: 1.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2011 11:08:20 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller nourcinelle1, Midi-Pyrénées, France
Comments: Interesting French Lacemaker’s focusing lamp.  Note the slightly curved neck, and some kind of stopper that looks quite old.  Someone has made a case for this out of an old bobbinlace pattern. Small crack in the neck, and the case is pretty worn. Seller says this is from a house in Le Puy.

   Sold for 268.22 EUR, 9 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3mehj7g BRUSSELS BOBBIN LACE CAP BACK VRAI DROSCHEL Ca 1760
Size: 10.3″ in width.
Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2011 15:00:15 PDT
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: Very nice mid 18th century cap back, bobbinlace motifs on vrai droschel. Design symmetric, condition looks great. I thought perhaps that two curved pieces toward the bottom on either side have needlelace fillings in a diamond pattern… hard to tell. The seller sent me a wonderful closeup photo of this area, and it is indeed bobbinlace – extremely fine tallies in a diamond pattern. Amazing. It’s a beautiful piece.

   Sold for $460.00, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/43zy2v7 GENOESE STYLE BOBBIN LACE
Size: 5.4″ x 234″
Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2011 15:20:24 PDT
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: A wonderful piece, beautifully executed, very good condition, but difficult attribution. I am a little bothered by the finish; it just doesn’t have that cold-pressed density of early Italian Genoese. The long length would also be a very unusual survivor from the 16th-17th century. Seller has found several references citing a possible Italian 19th century source, perhaps Aemilia Ars.

   Sold for $450.00, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3wkf4l3 BRUSSELS BOBBIN LACE FAN WITH MOTHER OF PEARL STICKS
Size: 5.4″ x 234″
Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2011 16:00:54 PDT
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: Fan leaf is a pleasing combination of 19th century Point d’Angleterre, with Point de Gaze ground, and a Duchesse guipure.  Comes with a box. I don’t see anything wrong with the lace condition, seller says some sticks have been repaired.

   Sold for $250.00, 8 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3nro9yb POINT DE NEIGE NEEDLE LACE 64 x 13 cms
Size: 13 cm x 64 cm.
Starting price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2011 16:30:02 PDT
Offered by: Anne Swift, Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: Delightful length of late 19th century rosaline, perhaps from the Jesurum factory in Venice.   From the June Page collection.  Jesurum still exists, I visited there years ago and was given a piece of a similar lace. I was told how the lacemakers would be selected for each part of the manufacturing process mainly by the size of their hands.
I just wish there were more of this piece – stunning work.

   Sold for $517.00, 5 bidders.
