http://tinyurl.com/3h3cwon Antique hand made unusual Carrickmacross lace 1850
Size: 9 cm x 167 cm
Starting price: 62.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 17, 2011 09:39:41 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: Good length of Carrickmacross Guipure. I like the design, almost looks like Honiton on the outer edge. I see a few small scattered brown spots and the occasional weakness in the cloth. But overall condition is very good.

   Did not sell.

Size: 50 cm total length, 25 cm widest part
Starting price: 62.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 17, 2011 10:25:45 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: Seller calls this a Breton crochet piece, but I’m not so sure about that. Early Irish crochet of the type called knotted guipure is very similar to this.  Hard to tell if this was made in this form or cut to fit. I very much like Irish crochet treated as a textile in dressmaking.

   Did not sell.

http://tinyurl.com/3fzg6f9 Superbe Chaufferette Dentelière Fuseaux Art Populaire
Size: 22 cm long, 16 cm wide, 10 cm tall
Starting price: 62.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 17, 2011 11:32:21 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller barrioux, SERMENTIZON, Auvergne, France
Comments: A chaufferette footwarmer, designed to hold a basket of coals. Seller says it is from La Chaise-Dieu not far from Le Puy.  Looks in good condition, nice decorative cutouts. There is some warping of one of the wooden insulators. The piece does seem a little small, but I don’t have a lot of experience with these.

   Sold for 20.50 EUR, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3fxjyok Superbe Tabouret Chêne Carreau à Dentelle Art Populaire
Size: 27 cm long, 15.5 cm wide, 15 cm tall
Starting price: 14.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 17, 2011 11:32:34 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller barrioux, SERMENTIZON, Auvergne, France
Comments: So if you don’t have a chaufferette you can always use just a plain footstool. And this one is pretty plain, and sturdily built. Seller says it is from Auvergne.  Looks in good condition, some finish damage. It isn’t unreasonable to expect wear on a piece like this.

   Sold for 14.00 EUR, 1 bidder.

Size: 60 cms long, 19 cms wide. Wheel diameter 20 cm.
Starting price: 28.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 17, 2011 11:34:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller barrioux, SERMENTIZON, Auvergne, France
Comments: Interesting French bobbinwinder. Has a kind of artisinal quality to it. Note the wide carved spokes on the wheel with the wide grain pattern in the wood. I’ve stared at it for a long time, still not sure if this pattern and the wear is consistent throughout the whole piece. It is complete, and looks in very good condition.

   Sold for 72.57 EUR, 8 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3prz2zl Mint Antique Point de Gaz Intricate Lg Dress Trim Lace
Size: 30 ” around, 2.5″-5″ deep
Starting price: $9.99
Auction ends: Apr 18, 2011 15:03:48 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ogop, Lincoln, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: I’m not really sure how this piece works, but I like it a lot. Maybe one end mates at the head of the endpiece if you make it into a collar?  Even if not, it’s a nice design showing some innovation for Duchesse.  Looks in very good condition.  Good work on the needlelace.

   Sold for $152.50, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3csfyqt Superb Antique Chanilly Lace Fan Leaf
Size: 8″ in depth, 26″ across
Starting price: 9.99 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 19, 2011 12:00:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller baraud, Newton Abbot, United Kingdom
Comments: Good Chantilly fan leaf, looks in very good condition. It is still on the fan backing although the sticks have been removed. Don’t know how difficult it might be to fully detach. Now it folds in an accordion fan mode. Nice small design in a regularly repeated pattern, maybe a little bit of shading within the roses?

   Sold for 90.88 GBP, 8 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/43zdygr ANTIQUE LACE FABULOUS HANDMADE MECHLIN LAPPETS c 1770
Size: 3-1/2″ x 58″
Starting price: $49.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 19, 2011 12:00:15 PDT
Offered by: Paivi Roberts, Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach, United States
Comments: This is so close! I agree with the seller, it does look like this might be a joined piece.  The inner edge in the photo below just doesn’t match the outer edge, and might be from a different piece. Joining is very subtle. Also some obvious joining at the top. Design, workmanship, condition all very good.

   $49.99, reserve not met, 1 bidder.
