Bonhams has Textile auctions including lace several times a year. The lace lots in the April 19th auction are part of a larger event at the Chester facility.  The laces include lots 82 to 92. It is a small offering, but appears to have some high quality items. Lots of fans, a nice tatted fallcap (lot 83), a square Brussels application shawl (lot 90). Lot 92 has lots of modern equipment mixed with an older bobbin winder and some material from the North Bucks Association.
Condition reports can be requested separately for all lots.
Bidding: All bidders must first register with Bonhams at
See for detailed bidding instructions.
Payment: Sterling check, cash, banker’s draft, or bank transfer.
Debit card UK bank, no charge. 3% surcharge on overseas bank or deferred debit cards.  Mastercard or Visa (3% surcharge).
Charges: Buyer’s premium is 20% of the hammer price on the first 250,000 GBP
VAT at current rates (20%) is added separately, where applicable.

I don’t yet see a date for the next regular Bonhams Embroideries, Costume, Textiles, Lace & Fans auction, but should be in the July timeframe.
