 http://tinyurl.com/6264exy very pretty brussels lace hanky badly marked.
Size: not given
Starting price: 12.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 01, 2011 10:23:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller reddolly123, nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
Comments: Not sure why the seller is so down on this piece, I think it’s quite nice, and stains should come out well with a proper laundering. Seller cites a few small pinhole in the net, but I can’t find them from the photos. It’s a flat Belgian needlelace, no raised rose petals, no ambitious needlelace fillings. But the design is good and it works well.

   Sold for 51 GBP, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/5uo29xr HM Antique Vtg BRUSSELS LACE Wedding Veil Shawl Stole
Size: 22.5″ x 110″ (I think there’s an error in the size in the listing)
Starting price: $99.99
Auction ends: Jul 03, 2011 18:05:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: Good scarf of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net. Design gets more complex at the ends. Looks like needlelace is limited to lots of fillings, rings, and something representing stamens in the flowers.  Nice reaised work on the bobbin motifs. Looks in very good condition, I spot a hole here and there, some separation of the motifs, age discoloration, but nothing really serious.

   Sold for $315.00, 9 bidders.

Auction ends: Jul 04, 2011 13:07:38 PDT
Offered by: Carolyn Forbes, Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: Duchesse bertha, good dense design. Some raised work in the leaves, I don’t see any needlelace. Seller cites one broken bride an even age discoloration.  Otherwise very good condition – looks impressive.

http://tinyurl.com/3gxd84l 19THC PRETTY BRUSSELS LACE ON NET WEDDING VEIL OR STOLE
Size: 18″ x 80″
Starting price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jul 04, 2011 13:07:44 PDT
Offered by: Carolyn Forbes, Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: I don’t think this is Belgian. I think it’s Honiton, based on the shape of the motifs, the type of net used for the applique, and above all, the extensive bobbin fillings. And it’s quite a nice one. Seller cites a few spots, but overall very good condition.

   $89.00, 5 bidders, reserve not met.

http://tinyurl.com/3czusjj ANTIQUE LOVELY DENSE BRUSSELS DUCHESSE LACE COLLAR
Size: ~3.5″ x 48″
Starting price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jul 04, 2011 13:07:47 PDT
Offered by: Carolyn Forbes, Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: What a great piece, takes the prize for today. The design looks like a collar has been folded back around the neck, and the Duchesse motifs are interesting in a conventional standard. I don’t see any needlelace. A few age spots, but no damage that I can see.

   Sold for $175.00, 5 bidders

http://tinyurl.com/3nk864y ELEGANT BRUSSELS DUCHESSE LACE LG SCALE DESIGN COLLAR

Starting price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jul 04, 2011 13:07:56 PDT
Offered by: Carolyn Forbes, Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: Very good deep collar of bobbinlace more like Bruges Bloemwerk than pur Duchesse. Very well made, large flowers and leaves with halfstich shading. Brides and fillings delicately done.  Looks in very good condition, I can’t see any damage.

   Sold for $375.00, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3hkct79 MID 19THC FRENCH CHANTILLY FASCINATOR SHAWL
Size: 15″ at widest, 108″ long
Starting price: $24.99
Auction ends: Jul 04, 2011 13:08:02 PDT
Offered by: Carolyn Forbes, Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: Good deep collar with lappets of Chantilly. The main collar seems to be all there, but is oversewn with a Chantilly flounce around the edge. Probably a Belgian piece, I’ve seen illustrations in books like Kellogg’s “Bobbins of Belgium” like this. Several tears, and seller says the piece is dry and fragile.

   Sold for $130.29, 9 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3hl4rur ANTIQUE CREAM IRISH NEEDLE LACE HANDKERCHIEF SHAMROCKS
Size: 11.5″ square
Starting price: 14.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 05, 2011 10:45:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller abfabs05, East Anglia, United Kingdom
Comments: Handkerchief border is of Carrickmacross applique on machine net. Lots of shamrocks, exuberent design and typical looped border. It has a stiff look to it as though it’s late 20th century. Nicely worked and very good condition – only one small hole in the net.

   Sold for 22.00 GBP, 3 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3we5rd3 Antique Vtg Lux Needle Lace Wheels Lace Maker / Bobbin
Size: 6 cm diameter
Starting price: 1.99 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 05, 2011 13:00:26 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller leggysal, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Comments: An extremly rare piece – I’ve only seen one other. This is a Teneriffe lace wheel that was included in a box of Lux powered soap as an advertisement. It promoted the claim that lux was so gentle you could wash your fine lace in it.  The construction is quite unique, imagine two pie plates put back to back, and holes drilled around the rim. Pins go into the holes and the foundation thread is woven back and forth between these points.  It’s a little hard to explain.  I don’t know the date, maybe 1930’s? Front condition is OK, but otherwise a lot of rust.

   Sold for 9.50 GBP, 5 bidders
