Size: not given
Starting Price: $295.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: 18 hours 26 min from 2/21/2013 4:46 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A runner, combination of needle and bobbin lace that we sometimes call Point de Milan.Note the Point de Paris fillings in the bobbinlace next to the cherub. I think it is a Belgian piece, and the figural work of the Cherub is quite nicely done for something this large. Looks in very good condition overall.

Size: 90 mm diameter
Starting Price: $14.99
Auction ends: Feb 23, 2013 14:24:40 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller douro2013, Porto, Portugal
Comments: I haven’t see this one before.  It looks like a medal issued for a 25th anniversary of handicraft fair in Vila do Conde in 2002.  The artist is Boaventura Pinto. One side seems to show basket weaving, the other side is bobbinlace.  There is some greening of the bronze, but basically it looks in good condition.

Size: 68″ x 140″
Starting Price: $1,500.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: 2 days 2 hours from 2/21/2013 7:18 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller oldthreads, Franklinville, New York, United States
Comments: This has rather an Art Deco 1920’s look to it. I don’t think the dancing women would be showing so much leg if it were earlier.  It is a very well done Venise needlelace with an interesting looped picot bride ground. I’m guessing Belgium. Condition looks very good. No sign of napkins, and linen collectors can be picky about that.

http://tinyurl.com/bdcd5x5 lovely length of 18c french needlelace 66×3 and a half inchs.
Size: 3.5″ x 66″
Starting Price: 10.00 EUR
Auction ends: Feb 24, 2013 06:28:19 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller reddolly123, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Comments:
Wish there were more closeups of this piece. It appears to be a later 19th c Alençon border with a bride tortillée ground. The design has a romantic, crisp look and the toilé seems more open, which are signs of 19th c work. Not many ‘mode’ fillings. Overall good condition, you can see a few repairs and small holes as noted by the seller.

Comments: A well-done whitework embroidery handkerchief with a Valenciennes border. The embroidery includes some needlelace stitches.  One repair around the A in the monogram, but overall very good condition.

Size: 22″ x 2 yards 30″
Starting Price: 24.95 GBP
Auction ends: Feb 24, 2013 11:15:04 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: I’ve been discussing this interesting piece with the seller. I’m a bit stumped on this one. It has the feel of an 18th c Brabant, but the thread looks like silk (or perhaps a thick softly finished linen). The net filling appears to be a bobbin-made point ground sewn into the edges of the motifs. That’s not an 18thc technique. There’s also an unusual picoted plaited square mesh.  I’m wondering if this might be a later 19th c or early 20th c Italian copy of a Brabant lace.  Condition looks very good; just one small brown stain that the seller notes.

http://tinyurl.com/b22lhqc Beautiful heirloom antique/ vintage Brussels applique lace wedding veil
Size: 76″ x 78″
Starting Price: 24.95 GBP
Auction ends: Feb 24, 2013 11:12:42 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: This is a square shawl with the same design in all corners.  Brussels application on machine net – bobbinlace motifs with a few simple needlelace fillings. The motifs are a little large, but it is a better quality design, and note the extra work with two different esprits in the main ground. Seller cites some pinholes in the net, and indicates the piece has been carefully washed. Basically very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/absxj6h Vtg Antique Italian Lace Milanese Punto Milano Lappet Handmade Bobbin 18th C
Size: 4.5″ x 60″
Starting Price: $392.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Feb 24, 2013 12:32:13 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller twist-in-time, Keller, Texas, United States
Comments: Ex. coll. Marian Powys. A Milanese border finished on both sides with a plaited edging. I think this edge was added later since you can see where the design is cut at the ends of the piece and the edge circles round the end. In the straight parts the design looks well intact.  It does have the feel of early 18th century Milan and note the plaited ground also found in this lace. It does, however, seem a bit narrow for Milanese. Condition looks very good from the photos.

Auction ends: 2 days 22 hours from 2/21/2013 7:54 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller mmmoonchild, Maywood, New Jersey, United States
Comments: A fallcap of Maltese lace. This is an unusual form, headcoverings in Maltese are normally of the larger Mantilla form.  This one is a little small, and relies heavily on patterns of woven leaves.  Looks in very good condition from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/aubeuaz ANTIQUE LACE- 19THC.BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE FLOUNCE
Size: 238″ around, I think. 7.5″ wide, 10″ wide at corners
Starting Price: $950.00
Auction ends: Feb 25, 2013 07:25:08 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A large amount of Point de Gaze which originally was the edge to some kind of linen. You can see remnants of the cloth along the upper edges. This is a flat piece, no raised petal flowers, and it has some nice fillings. Note the nice work in the oval cartouches with the multi-lobed star. Good design, good condition, but a little hard to handle with those corners.

    The “Beautiful heirloom antique/ vintage Brussels applique lace wedding veil” went for the small fortune of £735 in the end. Amazing result. Thank you for your great blog. I read it with interest and try to learn the different types of lace.
    Best wishes, Sophie
