http://tinyurl.com/3ruw5l9 RARE FRENCH ANTIQUE LACE COLLAR handmade
Size: 17.5″ outside, 12.5″ inside, 1.25″ wide
Starting price: 19.99 GBP
Auction ends: Nov 05, 2011 12:26:21 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ryphat, Paris, France
Comments: One might be tempted to pass this by without a second look, but I think it’s interesting. And it’s a good day for such guipures, there will be several in this post. It’s a small collar, I don’t think it’s Beds. It has a more French Le Puy look, especially with the elaborate brides.  Nicely raised tallies in the circular motifs, and note the rather complex fillings inside the circles. Looks like a bit of damage at the neck edge in the center, but other than that it’s mainly wrinkled.

   No bids.

http://tinyurl.com/3kjmnua DENTELLE CHANTILLY NOIRE ANCIENNE/ANTIC LACE BLACK 400X28 CM
Size: 11″ x ~157″
Starting price: 58.00 EUR
Auction ends: Nov 06, 201102:49:24 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller pouchant86, Jouhet, France
Comments: A long Chantilly border, very typical width for this kind of thing. The design is rather ordinary, and it is probably Belgian although the photos aren’t really good enough to see if it has the deep black color typical of products of Grammont. Condition looks very good, seller sites one or two broken threads, very minor.

   Sold for 58.00 EUR, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/44vb337 LARGE PIECED 19TH CENTURY DUCHESSE POINT DE GAZE LACE FLOUNCE / TRIM 84″ X 5″
Size: 5″ x 84″
Starting price: $25.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 11:26:15 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller nelliegardner, Evanston Illinois, United States
Comments: This is an estate piece, the seller seems to have information on the previous owner’s family which included a lace merchant. It is all Point de Gaze, and I like the rose with the single raised petal, a little more solid than normally seen.  Overall the design is fairly conventional, and there isn’t much in the way of decorative fillings. But it does have a nice presence overall. There do seem to be a number of holes in the ground.

   Sold for $285.00, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/42q8tl5 EXTRA QWIDE & LARGE PIECE OF 19TH CENTURY DUCHESSE POINT DE GAZE LACE 91″ X 7″
Size: 7″ x 91″
Starting price: $25.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 11:26:15 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller nelliegardner, Evanston Illinois, United States
Comments: Another Point de Gaze flounce from the same estate as the previous piece, but a little wider. There doesn’t seem to be any raised work in this one. The design is also a little more open. Again, seller cites some holes in the ground.  Take a look also at 280764201739, which is a narrow Point de Gaze border cut in two from the same estate.

   Sold for $265.00, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/43sd924 VERY FINE ANTIQUE 19TH CENTURY LACE POINT DE GAZE LAPPET 4 1/2″ X 40 1/2″
Size: 4.5″ X 40.5″
Starting price: $30.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 11:32:05 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller nelliegardner, Evanston Illinois, United States
Comments: Yet again a Point de Gaze piece from the same estate. Nice 19th century lappet scarf. Good design, and a few interesting fillings. Note the single picots around the edge, I’ve seen this before and one could probably determine the manufacturer from this characteristic.  Again, the holes in the net downside.

   Sold for $141.06, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3aq99oe LARGE 170″ X 6″ BRUXELLE BOBBIN & POINT DE GAZE LACE FLOUNCE EARLY 19TH CENTURY
Size: 6″ x 170″
Starting price: $30.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 11:36:50 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller nelliegardner, Evanston Illinois, United States
Comments: One last piece from the Illinois estate.  A nice Duchesse de Bruxelles flounce, quite long. The bobbinlace is well worked, and the needlelace is kept simple so it doesn’t overpower the rest of the work. Again, a few holes, although not as bad as in the other pieces. There is some staining in this piece.

   Sold for $470.55, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/447ak4e ANTIQUE LACE- 127-128″ BRUSSELS LACE EDGING 322.6c cm
Size: 4″ x 127-128″
Starting price: $195.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 15:22:03 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: A narrow border of Brussels application on machine net.  The design is quite simple, with some dots in the ground. Which gives it a bit more character. I can’t see any condition problems, which is very important with lace like this. The machine net doesn’t often survive well.  The length is also a plus, it’s usable (although as a collector that’s not an important consideration to me.)

   Sold for $197.50, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3ccgw3h ANTIQUE LACE- FINE BRUSSELS LACE POINT DE GAZE LAPPETS
Size: 4″ x 14″ each
Starting price: $150.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 15:26:33 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: The design and workmanship on these lappets is very good. Note the separated spiky picots around the edge.  They do a lot with the flat design and no particular emphasis on decorative fillings. Usually pieces like this were joined together – this one looks cut in half with some of the original missing. I also see a few tiny pinholes in the net, and one filling of one flower is gone.

   Sold for $150.00, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/6gykwso ANTIQUE LACE-LOVELY BRUSSELS LACE LAPPETS
Size: not given
Starting price: $39.99
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 16:25:28 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Duchesse de Bruxelles lappets – you can’t see it from the photos, but these were originally one piece and have been cut apart. I’ll assume nothing is missing. The needlelace is confined to an area of ornamental fillings only, which I find nice. One of the pieces seems photographed from the back. The motifs are small and the general design is fairly conventional.  Condition appears good, I don’t see anything major.

   Sold for $49.99, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/3learaa ANTIQUE LACE-RARE 19THC. LACE PARASOL COVER
Size: 27″ diameter
Starting price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 17:22:18 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: A really interesting piece.  I don’t think it’s English – I’ll suggest Miracourt. It might even have a bit of a Czech feel, although I’d have to dig out some references to come up with comparables. Note the areas of clothwork that almost look like cut cloth  Condition looks excellent. See the related piece 150689037200, which has a similar feel, but is rather cut up.

   Sold for $645.99, 3 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4yrho5h ANTIQUE LACE-LOVELY CHANTILLY LACE FLOUNCE 158-159″ BY 19″
Size: 19″ X 158-159″
Starting price: $125.00
Auction ends: Nov 06, 2011 18:29:36 PST
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: It’s wide, even for a Chantily flounce; the longer ones are most commonly around 12″ wide.  I like the big curled leaf design. Can’t tell if it is Belgian or French. Condition looks good, seller cites a few openings, but I can’t see them.

   Sold for $150.50, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/4xzchcx * C1800 MECHLIN Hand Made BOBBIN LACE  Border* 74″x4.5″ (188×11.5cm)
Size: 4.5″ x 74″
Starting price: $19.99
Auction ends: Nov 07, 2011 11:34:36 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester., Worcs., United Kingdom
Comments: A very delicate, finely worked Mechlin border in a good size. It has a late 18th century feel. Seller cites some tiny pinholes, with is quite minor. It looks translucent against the blue background.

   Sold for $103.50, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3vyhehc Superb MALTESE Cream Silk BOBBIN LACE Scarf – Shawl – Stole – MINT Condition
Size: 9.5″ x 84″
Starting price: $19.99
Auction ends: Nov 07, 2011 11:38:51 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester., Worcs., United Kingdom
Comments: A narrow rectangular Maltese scarf. The scalloped border around the edge is made separately, the inner part consists of two matched lengths joined lengthwise – this is to accommodate the small width of the Maltese lace pillow.  It’s a nice, effective piece with good guipure and leaf work. Condition looks very good, I don’t see any problems.

   Sold for $330.90, 8 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/44jkpbc * Antique BRUSSELS BOBBIN Lace Dainty HANDKERCHIEF *
Size: 15″ square
Starting price: $9.99
Auction ends: Nov 07, 2011 11:48:27 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester., Worcs., United Kingdom
Comments: A Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net handkerchief. The motifs are quite small and the design rather open.  I think it looks better from a distance than it does closeup. The attachment to the center cloth is a bit sloppy.  Condition appears very good, I don’t see any particular problems.

   Sold for $132.50, 7 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/3s3f7cr * 19thc MALTESE Cream Silk BOBBIN LACE Manitilla / Shawl *
Size: 29″ x 60″
Starting price: $19.99
Auction ends: Nov 07, 201111:56:18 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester., Worcs., United Kingdom
Comments: A very nice Maltese Mantilla. The seller thinks it may have been died – hard to judge the color from the photos. Maybe. The colors in the last photos are a bit spotty – hard to tell what’s going on here.  The condition is so good, it’ doesn’t have that washed looked that you might expect. I’m wondering if it isn’t something about the original thread color.

   Sold for $305.01, 9 bidders.
