http://tinyurl.com/3kw76lx #11 Antique Hand Made Chantilly Black Lace, Scarf Size: 15″ x 36″
Starting price: $.99
Auction ends:
Jul 22, 2011 18:30:19 PDT
Offered by:
Ebay seller heartstrings, Gurley, AL, United States
Comments: Photographs aren’t very good, but it has a handmade feel. I could be wrong – but I note that 5 bidders are already taking a chance on it.  It’s a semi-circular Chantilly bonnet veil, with a dense pattern of dots in the center, with a heavy floral border around the edge.  One would put a ribbon through the holes on the flat edge to use as a drawstring. Looks in very good condition.

  Sold for $43.92, 7 bidders.

Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments:
Belgian needlelace fan mount. Has a kind of Venise/Zele look, although the clothwork is more open like Point de Gaze. Note the bride ground in combination with the reseau. Some very small holes, very minor. It’s an interesting design with a unique combination of techniques. Does seems a bit heavy for a fan.

  Sold for $110.25, 2 bidders.

Size:
20″ x 108″

Auction ends:
Jul 24, 2011 18:24:59 PDT
Offered by:
Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments:
Brussels application on machine net, a good wide, long flounce. Unfortunately quite a few small holes, and maybe some small repairs in the net. Mainly bobbin made motifs with some needlelace fillings. A good design for something this size – the motifs are fair large and a little standard. But overall it works well.

    Sold for $355.00 5 bidders.

Size:
~14.5″ x 14.25″
Starting price:
$49.99
Auction ends:
Jul 24, 2011 18:24:59 PDT
Offered by:
Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments:
Val de Gand handkerchief. Despite the Valenciennes name, it is actually a pieced lace with a unique square mesh ground, three plaited threads to a side. The lacemakers produced many identical motifs of very high quality and dense clothwork. These were later arranged and filled in with the ground – a good method of speeding up production. These laces can be extremely impressive. The quality of this piece is very good (as is the condition).

  Sold for $124.11, 4 bidders.

Size:
lace 6″ wide, 73″ outside circumference.
Starting price:
$275.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Sale ended:
July 22, 2012
Offered by:
Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments:
Bertha of  Duchesse, rather on the Bruges side. Note the well worked motifs, with a simple gimp outlining many of them. No needlelace in this piece. I think it works quite well. A few spots, but I don’t see any major damage.  The tiny looped picots on the brides are unusual.

  Offer of $190.00 accepted.
