http://tinyurl.com/3gckqu3 ANTIQUE VERY FINE POINT DE GAZE LACE COLLAR
Size: 2″ maximum width, inside edge 13″
Starting price: $65.00
Auction ends: Jun 07, 201120:30:33 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller twist-in-time, Philadelphia / DFW, United States
Comments: Small, but very nicely done. Note the intermittent looped picots around the edge, this surely is the mark of a specific manufacturer. Someone needs to write a book about Belgian needlelace trying to identify the characteristics of various makers.  A fewsmall holes in net and one flower center, unfortunately in a piece of this size they get a bit noticeable.

http://tinyurl.com/455kxyb vintage TURNED WOOD LACE BOBBIN WINDER D G HODSON
Size: 17″ long, 5.5″ widest point, bracket 4″ long
Starting price: 9.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 09, 201112:17:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller starshine1821, Berkshire UK, United Kingdom
Comments: I have one of these, and it’s a really excellent piece of woodworking. Mine works a little stiffly, probably would loosen up with some oil. The bobbins are meant to be held in with shaped pieces of cork – you can see some stuck  in the orifice. Mine came with a whole bag of drilled corks cut lengthwise. I’m glad to see the maker, D. G. Godson – mine is not marked.  I think this is a later 20th century piece. Wish there were a picture of the whole thing, it’s really impressive once everything is put together.

   Sold for 17.25 GBP, 4 bidders.

Comments: Interesting motifs in this collar, looks like some needlelace edgings on the inside of the trefoil shapes. Very heavy raised ring centers.  Condition looks good, I can’t see any damage.

http://tinyurl.com/4xdqtcq LA17 Vtg Handmade French ALENCON Lace Lappets 18th C.
Size: 2-1/2″ wide by 24″ long
Starting price: $375.00 Buy-It-Now
Auction ends: Jul 01, 2011 17:58:00 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lois437, Michigan, United States
Comments: Definitely do not pass these by – I like them very much. Condition appears excellent, and Alençon reseau of this period rarely survives so well. Just a few spots on the motifs. Don’t complain that the design isn’t that interesting and the fillings not that ambitious. Condition on this outweighs everything, and you won’t see it again for a very long time.

   Sold for $375.00
