http://tinyurl.com/9cm72kt Antique/vintage 19th century Honiton lace fall cap with lappets
Size: 50″ long, widest 9.5″
Starting Price: 12.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 24, 2012 10:41:45 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A Honiton fallcap in very good condition. Snails/slugs era; it only relies on a few repeated motifs, but makes a good, bold statement.

   Sold for 80.00 GBP, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/cqruy5x Antique/vintage 19th century Bedfordshire lace fall cap with lappets
Size: 35″ long, widest 9″
Starting Price: 12.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 24, 2012 10:47:52 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: This fallcap is smaller than the Honiton one above, and a good example of a Beds plaited lace in a very salable form. But I am wondering if there’s been some modification – the top of the lappets where they join the cap back park seem to have some damage – almost as if they’ve been cut and joined to something else. And the trails next to the scalloped edges don’t match up.

   Sold for 119.53 GBP, 5 bidders.

Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 24, 2012 10:54:58 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom

   Sold for 11.00 GBP, 2 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/9m32yxw Length Antique Handmade Lace-58 ” X 6″
Size: 58″ x 6″
Starting Price: 9.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 24, 2012 11:59:54 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller baraud, Newton Abbot, United Kingdom
Comments: Looks like a Milanese piece, late 17th early 18th c? Decoration of the tape is done sparingly, a few single holes, but some of the scrolls are more elaborate and also make use of cloth stitch with twists.The tape is nicely shaped as it goes around curves. The piece is a bit worn, but I’d call it overall good condition for something of this age.

   Sold for 71.50 GBP, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/8zfgzsu GORGEOUS VINTAGE HANDMADE HONITON LACE COLLAR WITH THISTLE and ROSE DESIGN
Size: ‘lappets’ 12″, 15″ to inner back neckline
Starting Price: 4.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 24, 2012 13:34:59 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller beyondthetower, SOMERSET, United Kingdom
Comments: A Honiton collar with long points, meant to edge the front opening of a dress. Note the extensive, well-done rose and thistle design, and extensive tally fillings. Definitely beyond the snails/slugs phase.

   Sold for 87.99 GBP, 9 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/8jn5a9r Antique/vintage Brussels fan lace
Size: 22.5″ long, 8″ width
Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 25, 2012 11:16:03 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A fan leave that seems rather large. Typical Duchesse motifs, bit on the Bruges side, no needlelace that I can see. Kind of a middle market product and would probably have eventually been mounted on mother-of-pearl sticks. Overall good condition, seller cites occasional broken brides.

   Sold for 54.00 GBP, 8 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/bnwfdqd Beautiful Antique Handmade Honiton Lace wedding Veil. 1870-1890
Size: 82″ x 65″ as measured by seller
Starting Price: 9.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 25, 2012 12:00:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller baraud, Newton Abbot, United Kingdom
Comments: A veil of Honiton appliqued on machine net. Note with the piece states it was cleaned, but not repaired din 2009. Note the good quality of the net, a little sturdier than what you often find in Brussels application, and with a beautiful drape. There is a large shell-like flower/leaf decoration running on what looks like all 4 sides, with some motifs in the corners, and scattered sprigs in the ground. Snails/slugs era, nicely done. A few pinholes in the net, overall very good condition. I believe the accompanying note states that it was evaluated by Pat Perryman at the Honiton museum.

   Sold for 256.55 GBP, 9 bidders.

Offered by: Ebay seller lacechest, colorado springs, CO, United States
Comments: A Bruges Bloemwerk bobbinlace lappet collar. I like the regular edge and athe nice placement of the end flowers.  Condition looks very good. Note the large flower at the back point of the piece.  An unusual form, nicely done.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A collar of Brussels Duchesse.  One layer of raised rose petals in the Point de Gaze inserts.  Conventional bobbinlace motifs, well done.  Looks in very good condition, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/8gtr82b VINTAGE HONITON APPLIQUE LACE COLLAR/BERTHA
Size: 37″ neckline x 6.75″ width
Starting Price: 4.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 26, 2012 13:34:59 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller beyondthetower, SOMERSET, United Kingdom
Comments: A Honiton collar, motifs appliqued on machine net.  A dense pattern, actually bigger than it appears from the photos. Almost a bertha collar, but not quite the right shape.  Snails/slugs, limited number of motifs. Basically good condition, but a little fraying and holes in the machine net.

   Sold for 165.55 GBP, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/9dttgkh GORGEOUS HONITON SQUARE SHAPED LACE COLLAR – LOVELY SCROLLS & FLOWERS
Size: 12″ across back, 16″ neckline? not sure I understand other measurements.
Starting Price: 4.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 26, 2012 13:52:47 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller beyondthetower, SOMERSET, United Kingdom
Comments: This is certainly the week for Honiton. This dress front (the bib part goes in front) has a very dense, asymmetric pattern, still rather snails/slugs.  Note the extensive tally fillings in the scrolls, unusual. I like the smaller flowers used around the edges.  Condition appears very good from the photos.  Even more Honiton if you look at the sellers additional items.

   Sold for 38.00 GBP, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/9xnplg7 19 C. HANDMADE ITALIAN FIGURAL BURATO NEEDLELACE LINEN TABLECLOTH 101″  x 65″
Size: 65″ x 101″
Starting Price: $695.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: 2 days 22 hours from Sep 23, 2012 8:33 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller oldthreads, NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL, FRANKLINVILLE, N.Y., United States
Comments: Embroidery on a leno-woven ground note the double strand warp which I don’t think was typical of earlier pieces. Even the points along the edge are done on this cloth   It is a lovely antique-looking design full of symbolism, although the general form is maore an early 20th century table linen. A beautifully made piece in very good condition – seller notes it has recently been washed and pressed.

http://tinyurl.com/9zn3zux Antique 1890-1900s Victorian Needle Lace Flounce Trim Hand Made Fancy #3
Size: 3″ x 39″
Starting Price: $125.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: Sep 26, 2012 18:06:24 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller gb-best, New Ringgold, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: From the elaborate lower edge, the sculpted borders, adn the little rings on the brides, I’m guessing this is French Point Colbert. We really don’t have many actual samples for identification, but it just doesn’t seem like an Italian product. This piece is being sold in several parts, see also #140853693600, and a third one has already sold. Seller cites some breaks and age spotting, but generally good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/9exxhq3 EDWARDIAN MALTESE CREAM SILK LACE TABLE COVER
Size: 35.5″ square
Starting Price: 150.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 27, 2012 02:25:26 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller kimsucadi, Wokingham, Berkshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A square Maltese cover for something – I don’t think it’s a table cover since it doesn’t have a cloth center.  It’s a little small to be a shawl. But it has a great 8-pointed star design, good guipure in the corners, and a very dense leave ground.  An impressive looking piece. Not many photos, but the condition looks very good.

   No bids.

http://tinyurl.com/9o528xl PIZZI ANTICHI COPRI CAPO CHIESA EPOCA ‘800 TOMBOLO A MANO
Size: not given
Starting Price: 14.99 EUR
Auction ends: Sep 27, 2012 13:39:48 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller unsognoantico, italia, Italy
Comments: The post says this is a headcovering that women wore to church. I’m not sure where it’s from – it has an interesting ground typical of Le Puy, but the relief work is unusual. The half stitch is also done quite loosely.  I think it’s pretty big if you scale it in relation to the table it is spread on. Looks like black silk, it’s an interesting piece, and seems in generally good condition. But it’s hard to tell – I do see some loose brides and what looks like wear to the motifs.

   Sold for 85.89 EUR, 5 bidders.

Offered by: Ebay seller rmmco,Arvada, Colorado, United States
Comments: A Duchesse headcovering, one of the various mantilla forms. It has a general Bruges appearance, no raised work, no needlelace anywhere that I can see. A good, dense pattern well executed. Maybe a loose bride here or there, but overall very good condition.

   Sold for $147.50, 7 bidders.
