Ebay Alerts! Four items – October 6, 2011

http://tinyurl.com/432j3yn SUPERB LG HM Antique Vtg BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE BERTHA COLLAR
Size: 6.25″ wide, 41″ neckline, 83″ outside edge
Starting price: $49.99
Auction ends: Oct 09, 2011 18:01:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: A Duchesse de Bruxelles bertha. Rather open work in the linen stitch in the bobbinlace. The flat rose inserts of point de gaze are fairly simple, no raised petals. I find the motifs a little large for the form, but quite well made. Condition is very good, no damage I can see. Seller cites a few broken brides, but this is very minor wherever they are.

   Sold for $202.50, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3pntxjk SUPERB HM Antique Vtg BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE COLLAR
Size: 22.5″ neckline
Starting price: $29.99
Auction ends: Oct 09, 2011 18:06:59 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse dress front. The areas of Point de Gaze are unusually large, with layered rose petals. The bobbinlace motifs are rather conventional, including a little raised work, and the design assembly seems a bit haphazard. The overall form of this piece is interesting, and it lies nicely over the shoulders and bust. An unfortunate small hole in the needlelace ground, but it is toward the back, and the rest looks in good condition.

   Sold for $114.05, 7 bidders.

Size: 16″ at shoulders, 11.5″ long in front, 18.5″ long in total. Back drop 7″ (not sure I understand all that)
Starting price: $4.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Oct 10, 2011 11:43:43 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mctiques, Winterport, Maine, United States
Comments: The flowers on this piece show some interesting layering. Square meshed picoted ground. The neck edge is a bit puzzling, I can’t really tell how it is made. Seems volded over.  I like the looped row of trefoils around the edge. And the repeated use of the grapes is a nice counterpoint to the different flowers and leaves. In staring at this for a whitel I thought it just might be silk, but I’m not sure.  Condition looks very good.

   $15.50, 3 bidders, reserve not met.

Comments: A Bruges joined lappet set scarf. Good, crisp motifs, more a ‘fine bloemwerk’ technique. Note the sharp picots separated from the motifs around the outer edge.  Good raised veins in the leaves.  Very minor loose threads, overall condition is very good.
