Comments: Yes, this has ended because some sneaky person executed the Buy-it-Now option today. But it is such a good piece that I thought I’d put it up anyway – the seller is very knowledgeable and it is worth reading her description. It is a very good ombre-shaded Chantilly fan leaf with the unusual addition of an embroidered initial in the monogram. Seller attributes it to Grammont because of the deep black color of the thread – that is something I’ve heard discussed among collectors. It would be a bit unusual for an ombre piece like this not to be French, and the design is the higher quality one also associates with French manufacture. Telling the difference between Belgian and French Chantilly has stumped the best experts, so I’ll reserve judgment until it arrives in the mail.

   Sold for $525.00, Buy-it-Now.

Offered by:
Ebay seller mansecats, Northumberland, United Kingdom
Comments: I wish people would lay pieces like this out flat for photos so you can see what you are getting all in one picture. Good Irish crochet collar with fairly large motifs. Raised centers, dense clothwork, especially on the shamrocks. single picots on the rectangular mesh ground. Looks in very good condition, other than a few rust marks I can’t see any damage.

   Sold for 14.95 GBP, 1 bidder.

Ebay seller claud17114, Comunidad Valenciana, España
Comments: Good long length of black silk bobbinlace. Could be Spanish, but from the elaborate ground work, I’d also say Le Puy is a possibility. Then again there’s not a lot of gimp around the motifs, and the long thin tallies are of a little different character than typical Le Puy. I think this kind of lace was made in other areas of France, and maybe also in Russia. Someone should look into this.  Condition looks very good. Be sure that the seller will let you bid if you are outside Spain.

   Did not sell.

Offered by:
Laura Allmond, Ebay seller allmndjy, Beautiful Central Pennsylvania!, United States
Comments: Good Duchesse de Bruges collar and front lappets with attached neckpiece. Some raised work, and no needlelace inserts or fillings. Seller says it is linen, which would be unusual and might account for a little stiffness in the work.  A few spots, but otherwise good condition.

Offered by:
Laura Allmond, Ebay seller allmndjy, Beautiful Central Pennsylvania!, United States
Comments: I like the asymmetrical design of this frontpiece very much. The needlelace rings included in the design not as fillings, but as accents to the motifs are quite unusual and take this well outside the usual Duchesse offerings. I agree with the seller, someone should take the added pieces off. A few spots, but overall very good condition. Linen thread? Not sure.

   Sold for $41.00, 3 bidders.

Auction ends:

Offered by:
Laura Allmond, Ebay seller allmndjy, Beautiful Central Pennsylvania!, United States
Comments: Quite an interesting piece. Sort of a grape leaf design which gives it an interesting edge. Note the little windows in a lot of the clothwork, quite unusual. It does have a very open feel due to extensive use of half stitch.  I almost wonder if this isn’t Belgian, but can’t immediately offer an alternative.  Few spots, but otherwise I don’t see any problems.

   Sold for $138.50, 10 bidders.
