Auction ends: Jun 13, 2011 06:53:26 PDT
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Good solid border of Duchesse with raised work in the leaves. No needlelace. Seller cits a few small openings, but seems in overall very good condition. Excellent length, very good example.

http://tinyurl.com/3j8mep3 BRUSSELS LACE BONNET VEIL. V. FINE WORK. PRETTY DESIGN
Size: 34.5″ wide, 15″ deep
Starting price: 24.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 14, 2011 07:25:08 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller georginanntiques, London, United Kingdom
Comments: Condition is everything on a piece like this, and the machine made lace has held up very well.  I almost wonder if this might be Honiton. The motifs seem a bit large, and the pattern a little too symmetric for Belgian work.  And the tally fillings are extensive, not really typical of Brussels applique. Not sure. Seller cites a few small spots, but otherwise excellent condition.

  Sold for 27.00 GBP, 3 bidders

http://tinyurl.com/3zmsk7s 19TH C DENSE BRUSSELS & POINT DE GAUZE HANDKERCHIEF
Size: 14″ square
Starting price: $9.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jun 14, 2011 19:36:53 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jamiexmas*, Southbridge, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: Beautiful Duchesse de Bruxelles handkerchief. The bobbinlace is difficult to do on the small scale such an item demands. Raised petal roses, I see a few tiny holes in the needlelace reseau. But overall the lace is in good condition. Nasty stain in the handkerchief linen or cotton or whatever it is.

Sold for $316.00, 9 bidders.

Size: 13″ square
Starting price: $9.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jun 14, 2011 19:37:18 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jamiexmas*, Southbridge, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: Another very good handkerchief from this seller. A few age spots. Bobbinlace is quite fine, needlelace has no raised roses. Very simple fillings at the centers of the corner roses.  Condition, aside from come discolaration, looks very good. Note the rounded shape of the roses – sign of a particular manufacturer, but I don’t know which one.

Sold for $250.00, 7 bidders.

Starting price: $9.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jun 14, 2011 19:37:24 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jamiexmas*, Southbridge, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: Duchesse flounce, very densely packed design. A few broken brides, but overall looks in good condition, a little worn.  Maybe a few needlelace rings in the centers of some flowers, but nothing extensive. This lace stands on its own.

sold for $138.51, 9 bidders.

Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Irish crochet collar with single picot square bride ground. Good raised work in the centers of flowers. Design has four motifs – small trefoils, large trefoils, and two types of large fan-shaped flower with raised inner petals. Maybe some snaps or buttons sewn on one edge – But overall looks in very good condition.

   Sold for $75.00, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/3q8yoyv SUPERB BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE  HANDKERCHIEF HANKIE
Size: 13.5″ square
Starting price: 95.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 15, 2011 11:38:43 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller georginanntiques, London, United Kingdom
Comments: Belgian needlelace, no raised petals on the roses, and including some good filligns. Some of the very best Belgian needlelace is of this type, and you can see hints of potential in this one. It’s a very good piece, but rather the worse for wear. Some holes in the ground and center cloth. Just looks a little worn.

   Sold for 250.00 GBP, 5 bidders.

Offered by: Ebay seller annacottage, Connecticut, United States
Ebay seller jamiexmas*, Southbridge, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: Seems to be the week for Point de Gaze butterflies, and I’m putting two together here. Both are double wing, although on the second one, the upper layer only goes halfway. Both have some small stains. For pure Point de Gaze technique, I’ll give it to the first one, but both are quite good examples. Condition, apart from the staining, is mostly good, although the second one has a hole in the net on the lower wing. Photos on the second listing take forever to download.


Left: Sold for $85.00, 8 bidders.
Right: $42.01, 3 bidders, reserve not met.

http://tinyurl.com/3nucz35 Antique point de Gaze Lace Collar ~ Raised Roses
Size: 43″ inner edge, 4″ wide at center back
Starting price: $19.99
Auction ends: Jun 16, 2011 19:05:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller annacottage, Connecticut, United States
Comments: Very interesting piece.  Multilayered roses, fine quality work. Note the veining in the rose petals, I’ve never seen this pattern before.  Minimal use of needlelace fillings, but it really stands on its own. It also keeps the reseau to a minimum, resulting in a sort of Point de Gaze guipure. Looks in excellent condition, very minor defects..

   Sold for $775.00, 14 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3ke8x3e Selection of Vintage Handmade Maltese Silk Lace items.

Starting price: 24.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 19, 2011 11:43:32 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lacisfair, Surrey, United Kingdom
Comments: I like the design of the large handkerchief, the rest are pretty standard. The large one has an interesting ground, and nicely worked guipure motifs. Looks in very good condition.

   Sold for 42.01 GBP, 3 bidders

http://tinyurl.com/3hoc4ld Ancien carreau de dentellière 39 fuseaux 18e début 19e
Size: 46 cm diameter.
Starting price: 25.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jun 22, 2011 12:15:47 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller papyhote, Belgique, Belgium
Comments: A mystery pillow. I show the thumbnail below because it has a view of the base. There is a small roller set into a box in the center of the pillow. If it weren’t for that I’d say Wallonie. As it is, it looks a little Swedish. Or maybe a French Normandy variation? But the bobbins are French, Le Puy style (in the boxes). And it’s being sold from Belgium. Anway, I’d say it’s an early 20th century piece.  Looks in basically good condition.

   Sold for 95.00 EUR, 5 bidders.

    Hi Laurie
    Have looked at all the photos of this lace pillow & bobbins and the bobbins are most definately not Le Puy, typical Belgian/Flemish bobbins, though probably the larger ones.
    regards Nicky
