http://tinyurl.com/7f4j6a7 antique flounce brussels needlelace ,has marks .
Size: 3″ x 48″
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jan 13, 2012 06:45:17 PST
Seller: Ebay seller reddolly123, nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A Point de Gaze border that looks bigger than it is, but I think that’s good. There aren’t any details of the stitches, but the design looks good and I can see some fillings. I like the 6 petaled flowers. Yes there are a few small holes and some marks, but condition isn’t bad at all. Worth a serious look.

   Sold for 24.00 GBP, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/72y5djl RARE HONITON LACE W/HANDKERCHIEF,BUTTERFLIESS,BIRDS,BEE
Size: ~16.75″ square
Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jan 13, 2012 07:49:11 PST
Seller: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: This is a fun piece, and it’s big for a handkerchief. Note how the motifs go into the center cloth.  High quality Honiton, although not much in the way of fillings. Naturalistic design – I wonder what those lozenge shaped motifs are in the points. Square picoted bride ground.  Seller cites some marks in the cloth. I don’t see anything wrong with the lace itself from the photos.

   $373.99, 6 bidders, reserve not met.

http://tinyurl.com/7sv5sp8 Original Klöppelsack mit Ständer von Hand bemahlt und sehr alt
Size: not given
Starting Price: 1.00 EUR
Auction ends: 15. Jan. 2012 19:35:40 MEZ
Seller: Maria Ebay seller thobaka68, Niedersachsen, Deutschland
Comments: An old Klöppelstand with what looks like a newer pillow. Lots of bobbins and patterns. The stand is painted blue-green with daisies. Not many photos, but I think it’s adjustable, and looks in very good shape. Look for wear on the footpieces in pieces like this, and pegged together is better than nailed or screwed together.

   Sold for 111.99 EUR, 15 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/878rcnf FINE ANTIQUE BRUSSELS LACE BERTHA DRESS COLLAR D
Size: 47″ long, 4″ wide
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jan 15, 2012 11:08:40 PST
Seller: Ebay seller dayespast, DN14 6FE, United Kingdom
Comments: We haven’t had a bertha for a while. This one is a Duchesse with a few needlelace fillings, but more on the Bruges side in the bobbinlace. It’s quite narrow. The condition looks very good from what I can see.

   Sold for 21.00 GBP, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/7bnmtpf LARGE ANTIQUE BRUSSELS DUCHESSE LACE BERTHA DRESS COLLAR I
Size: 26″ outer diameter, inner diameter ~11″, ~48″ long
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jan 15, 2012 11:23:41 PST
Seller: Ebay seller dayespast, DN14 6FE, United Kingdom
Comments: A nice Bruges collar with square bride ground. At least I think it’s Bruges. The technique isn’t terribly sophisticated, but the work is densely done, and I like the look of the piece. The motifs get a little smaller the closer you get to the neckline.  No needlelace that I can see. I don’t see any problems with the condition.  Take a look at other pieces this seller is offering, there’s some nice stuff.

   Sold for 47.00 GBP, 5 bidders.

Size: 16 cm diameter, 24 cm high
Starting Price: 200.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jan 15, 2012 11:54:26 PST
Seller: Ebay seller dayespast, DN14 6FE, United Kingdom
Comments: A lacemaker’s lamp of Swiss design, called a ‘globier’. See my writeup in “Lighting for the Lacemaker” in the Collecting category at the right. Unusual to see something like this on a pedestal. It’s partially filled with water in the photo. Looks a bit lopsided on the base, but seems in good condition.

   Sold for 275.00 EUR, 3 bidders.

Size: 14″ X 55″
Starting Price: $49.99
Auction ends: Jan 15, 2012 18:02:56 PST
Seller: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: A ‘Crinoline’ flounce of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net, reasonable length for a collector.  Good design of flowers sprays nestled in the spaces of border swags. Lots of esprit in the ground, a sign of a better piece. A few needlelace ring fillings, but mainly this is composed of fine bobbinlace motifs.  Seller notes lots of holes in the net, and you can see small holes thoughout. And maybe some repairs. But the design wins me over.

   Sold for $202.55, 6 bidders.
