Ebay Alerts! Ten items – October 16, 2011

http://tinyurl.com/3vq97et Echarpe, Mantille Espagnole ancienne en dentelle
Size: 83 cm x 36 cm
Starting price: 22.0 EUR
Auction ends: Oct 17, 2011 00:51:29 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller modeco_123, London, Achères la Forêt, France
Comments: A semi-circular Chantilly bonnet veil. The row of holes along the top is mean to thread a ribbon.  The border of flowers and ribbons is elaborate for this form, and note the extensive use of dots in the ground. Condition looks very good, I can’t spot any problems.

   Sold for 51.00 EUR, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3vy9gyq Beautiful Antique Victorian Point de Venise/Raised Work Floral Lace Collar
Size: 55.5 cm tip to tip, 14.5cm across at widest, 8 cm at narrowest
Starting price: 0.99 GBP
Auction ends: Oct 17, 2011 13:11:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sandyfhbeating, TONBRIDGE, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments: A densly worked Irish Crochet collar. Small motifs, lots of raised edges and rings. Clones knots picots. The design is roughly symmetric around the midpoint, but still has a rather charming haphazard look.  There seems to be some staining along the neck edge, but overall it is in very good condition.

   Sold for 9.05 GBP, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3atmsqy ENCHANTING VINTAGE HONITON LACE COLLAR
Size: 17″ neck length, ~2.5″ wide
Starting price: 0.99 GBP
Auction ends: Oct 17, 2011 13:33:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sandyfhbeating, beyondthetower, SOMERSET, United Kingdom
Comments: A Honiton collar, slugs/snails period, with a bride ground. I think the ground is a coarse needlelace giving a large mesh, but the closeups aren’t enough to tell. Well worked, and I don’t see any condition problems. I think there are some lighting issues that look like staining, but it’s probably OK.

   Sold for 16.00 GBP, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3jvb8fx Exceptional Ladies Collar or Lace Pantel Brussels? 3D Forals
Size: 44″ midway down the piece, 8″ wide maximum
Starting price: $9.99
Auction ends: Oct 17, 2011 14:42:36 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller halfscraphalfcrap, Ripley, Tennessee, United StatesKingdom
Comments: A large Irish Crochet collar. Tightly worked motifs, clones knot picots and extensive raised work in the centers of flowes. It has this curious 4-fingered motif that I can’t identify.  The motifs are large, and well placed. I can’t see any condition issues from the photos. Seller cites some discoloration.

   Sold for $70.00, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/64arugz Fabulous Antique Brussels Mixed Lace Mantilla – Rose Point De Gaze – Duchesse
Size: 10″ x 82″
Starting price: $9.99
Auction ends: Oct 17, 2011 19:05:29 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller cragonisnt, cuyahoga falls, ohio, United States
Comments: A scarf of Brussels Duchesse. I can only see one end which looks good, and I’ll assume the other end is the same. It has a good symmetric design of typical flowers and leaves, with inserts of Point de Gaze. I can’t tell if the rose petals are raised. It is a complete piece with a few small breaks, but overall good condition.

   Sold for $390.00, 14 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3t48t33 Dentelle ancienne au fuseau 1 mètre 10
Size: 1 m x 7 cms
Starting price: $5.00
Auction ends: Oct 18, 2011 08:55:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller 21mt59, France
Comments: A border of Alençon needlelace with the reseau ground. Probably early 19th century. There is only one photo, but that looks in remarkably good condition. The reseau ground doesn not hold up well over time.  This is a thin, delicate laces, sometimes called Herren Alençon since it was used as ruffles on men’s cuffs. This piece is almost too delicate for that.

   Sold for $43.49, 3 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3r4bhhw Bobbin Lace Yardage Probably Bloem Work
Size: 5″ x 75″ plus additions
Starting price: $9.95
Auction ends: Oct 18, 2011 19:54:02 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller uniqueturtles, baltimore, MD, United States
Comments: Several lengths of a good quality  Bruges bloemwerk, very similar in design to Ebay #160507334602 that sold last November.  There are slight differences in the pattern.  The condition looks good, although I can’t tell if the yellowed color is true.

   Sold for $15.50, 3 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/43rhmbr 110cm long piece of Argentan lace with Tortillee ground c 1780
Size: 110cm long, 6cm middle, 4.5 cm at ends.
Starting price: 47.00 GBP
Auction ends: Oct 19, 2011 01:27:36 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lunnantiques, London, London, United Kingdom
Comments: Alençon and Argentan were virtually indistinguishable at this period, so it could go either way. Another ‘Herren Alençon’ example, this one a little heavier than the one previously discussed.  Brides tortillee in the main ground, regular reseau along the edge. I can’t tell the condition of the header edge because it is hidden by the engrelure. It might have come from a sleeve ruffle, hard to tell. Condition is a bit rough, some pulls and apparent repairs in the photo.

   No bids.

http://tinyurl.com/3r9s6as Antique Brussels Lace Collar
Size: ~23″ across
Starting price: $45.00
Auction ends: Oct 19, 2011 12:12:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller acupingo, Coraopolis, PA, United States
Comments: A rather flamboyant collar of Brussels Duchesse. The neckline looks quite small. A lot of raised bobbinlace in the motifs, and good quality raised petal roses in the Point de Gaze inserts. There aren’t enough closeups to give a really good idea of condition, but from a distance it looks very good.

   Sold for $120.28, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/6zf9z58 Antique Irish Youghal Lace Collar
Size: 12″ x 15″
Starting price: $45.00
Auction ends: Oct 19, 2011 12:24:25 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller acupingo, Coraopolis, PA, United States
Comments: I wrote to the seller asking for closeups of this piece (which helped a little but not much). It looks like a fine crochet perhaps with a needlemade ground. I’ve seen pieces like  this, sort of halfway between Irish needlelace and Irish crochet. Very interesting. The condition looks quite good.

   Sold for $45.00, 1 bidder.
