Bonhams has Textile auctions including lace several times a year. The December 6th auction catalog has just been posted and includes 67 lace-related lots. Most of the lots have several items. Check out the drawnwork panels of lot 6, and the beds/bucks collection of lot 21. Things start to pick up around lot 32-33 which have some nice shawls. And unusually large Honiton shawl is in lot 40. Lot 46 has an ‘Argentan’ flounce (which is probably a late 19th century Burano piece), copies of which are in several  private and public collections. The Minneapolis Insitute of Arts also has a piece of this, in similarly bad condition. The same lot says it has a polychrome piece, probably Jesurum. Some great wide ‘crinoline’ flounces of Brussels application on machine net in lot 49 and a good Duchesse bertha in lot 51.
Condition reports can be requested separately for all lots.

I don’t see a date for the next regular Bonhams Embroideries, Costume, Textiles, Lace & Fans auction.
