Ebay Alerts – Three items – August 25, 2011

Apologies, I’ve got a terrible cold so won’t do much on the alerts today. More on Sunday.

Size: ~16″ square
Starting price: $45.00 with reserve.
Auction ends: Aug 27, 2011 09:02:54 PDT
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: A very good Youghal handkerchief. Motifs are quite interesting with varied stitches even in the leaves. I like the little trellis like filling just to the left of center on the third photo down.  This piece has some damage to the lightest ground stitch. Seller also cites some spots and a hole in the material.

   $138.50, 3 bidders, reserve not met.

Size: lappets – 9 cm x 69cm, varied other lengths.
Starting price: $45.00 with reserve.
Auction ends: Aug 28, 2011 07:34:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lunnantiques, London, London, United Kingdom
Comments: An interesting set to have survived together. There’s not enough closeups to get a really good look at the mesh, and a very fine motif Brussels applique on droschel would be my second guess. I’d love it if they are Lille, but somehow I’d expect a slightly coarser linen ground.  Anyway, the lappets are great – I can’t see a center join which might indicate a later date. These all have been cared for with good repairs – just a few minor holes now.

   No bids.

Size: 38″ long, 3″ wide at ends.
Starting price: $24.99 with reserve.
Auction ends: Aug 29, 2011 13:08:51 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, NEW ENGLAND, United States
Comments: A good single-piece lappet set of Valenciennes, 2nd half 19th century. Condition looks very good, I can’t see anything serious from the photos. There is no ombre shading, and the motifs aren’t the most sophisticated. But as a shaped piece of Val it’s unusual and works very well.

   $24.99, 1 bidder, reserve not met.
