The second part of the Pat Earnshaw collection of lace and textiles. The lace lots run from 201 to 276, forming the afternoon portion of the auction. Note especially the 17th and 18th century laces starting around lot 241.  I especially like the lappets of lots 246 and 247, and the 243 Reticella. The needlelace, perhaps Sedan sleeve ruffles in lot 249 and the cap backs fof lots 251 and 253 are noteworthy. Kerry says that more of Pat’s lace will be sold this year.
