Comments: A very good Duchesse de Bruges handkerchief. the work is quite tightly done, and the bridework very delicate. Overall quite a nice example. Seller cites a few broken brides and some spots, but they aren’t obvious from the photos.

Comments: These little butterflies come up for sale fairly regularly and were a nice tourist item made in the early-mid 20th century. This one is quite nice with a variety of filing stitches, and note the windows in some of the clothwork. Very good condition, I can’t see any problems.

Starting price: $99.99
Auction ends: Aug 28, 2011 18:13:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: Stole of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net with good needlelace fillings. The design is largely confined to the ends of the piece – giving it quite a light appearance. Things like this can be much more elaborate. condition is everything in a piece like this, since the machine net doesn’t always hold up too well over time. condition looks very good to me, I can’t see any problems from the photos – see seller’s notes.

   Sold for $250.00, 8 bidders.

Comments: A good Maltese collar – perhaps a bertha? I like the semi-circular effect of the massed leaf tallies. Seller cites some discolaration, but overall very good condition.

Comments: Small Vlaams Aardewerk lacemaker by Vande Voorde, early 20th century. This is one of the smallest sizes he made (see the LaceNews article on Flemish Pottery lacemakers at http://tinyurl.com/4baktku). Vande Voorde was known for wonderful naturalism in all his figures. This one has two small chips, one in the base, one on a corner of the pillow, otherwise very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/3vzoj6u 19TH.CENTURY VICTORIAN BLACK LACE FAN LEAF
Size: 5″ wide, 19″ end to end
Starting price: $39.99
Auction ends: Aug 30, 2011 19:00:35 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ashley21057, Hydes, MD, United States
Comments: I think this is handmade – wish there were more closeups. I don’t see any honeycomb which is unusual. It’s hard to say what’s going on at the right end, almost looks like a stick is still attached. Seller says there is some glue residue in the guard area. Nevertheless it’s a lovely piece, and the design is well suited for folding.

   Sold for $56.55, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3du7dgh Antique lace making cushion and bobbins the box (set)
Size: none given
Starting price: $20.00
Auction ends: Aug 31, 2011 14:36:31 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller alyonka81, Natchez, MS, United States
Comments: You see early 20th century sets like this by Cotterel and of course our overly-hyped American Torchon Lace Company, but I’ve never seen one by Cartier-Bresson. Wonder how it got to Natchez, Mississippi? The pillow, book, bobbins, and patterns are all there. This piece has been used, so it’s hard to say what hte original packing looked like. A rare piece, there’s already a lot of interest in it.

   Sold for $143.40, 9 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3cebsbk Lace Making Bobbin Winder?
Size: ~14″ long
Starting price: 3.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 01, 2011 00:16:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller bricabracworld, Kidderminster, United Kingdom
Comments: An English upright bobbin winder, note the space in the clamp meant to accommodate the spangle. I’m thinking it’s a later piece, the earlier ones usually have a metal, not wooden screw at the bottom. And there’s not much wear. Hard to tell, there might be a nick in the upper right finial just below the ball? Might just be a trick of photography.  These pieces are delightful, although the flat windmill ones seem to work a bit better.

   Sold for 26.00 GBP, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3emeekc Biscuit la dentellière poinçonné numéroté
Size: 18 cm x 10.8 cm x 14.1 cm
Starting price: 50.00 EUR
Auction ends: Sep 01, 2011 11:35:37 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller papyhote, Belgique, Belgium
Comments: I’m going to guess from the mark that this is a German piece by Wallendorf, although the mark lacks an obvious ‘1764’ date below the W. Or maybe it is there and the photo isn’t focused enough to see. This firm made two versions of this figure, the other one is more elaborate.  (An elaborate one sold last February for 178.77 EUR, I show the photo next to the current offering below.) It’s a lovely, serene piece.  The seller notes several flaws which are hard to see in the white bisque, so you will have to decide for yourselves.

      Sold for 151.01 EUR, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3rqum2l IRISH CROCHET BLOUSE, C.1900

Starting price: $20.00
Auction ends: Sep 01, 2011 18:33:30 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller smtraversy, Concord, NH 03301, United States
Comments: A high-necked Irish Crochet blouse with shamrock and flower designs. Note the dangling element in the front and good raised work in some flower centers. More of a Rose of Sharon pattern on top, larger motifs with bride grounds on bottom. There are several holes, especially around the neck.

   Sold for $179.50, 7 bidders.

Size: 4″ x 56″
Starting price: $99.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Sep 01, 2011 19:30:13 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller grannyfannyssattic, Lebanon, Tennessee, United States
Comments: A good Brussels Duchesse flounce, with nice raised work in the bobbinlace. The needlelace is small, just a few inserts of roses with no raised petals. Hard to see why they bothered since the bobbinlace is fine on its own.  Condition looks very good, I don’t see any problems.

   $112.51, 3 bidders, reserve not met.

Auction ends: Sep 02, 2011 08:26:27 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lunnantiques, London, London, United Kingdom
Comments: Big enough for a bertha. I like this a lot, Flemish pieced lace with big bold motifs and lots of varied fillings, and nice picoted bride work.. Condition looks very good, I can’t see anything wrong. Someone put some thought into this one.

   No bids.

Comments: The piece isn’t very long, but I like the different flowers – nice change from all those roses. Condition appears very good, I can’t see any problems.

   No bids.
Not sure what happened here, something is wrong with the original listing. So I’m changing the pointer to the relisted item, #120772184579.
