http://tinyurl.com/a87bpo6 ANTIQUE LACE-C. 18THC. 126″ MILANESE LACE FLOUNCE
Size: ~9″ x 126″
Starting Price: $195.00
Auction ends: Feb 25, 2013 07:33:07 PST)
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A good collectable length of Milanese, early 18th c – I think the scalloped edging might make it a little later.  Irregularly placed plaited mesh, typical of these laces, and the motifs are fairly well defined flower sprays. The design looks intact, overall a nice example. Condition looks very good; I don’t see any obvious problems from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/b78gupq ANTIQUE LACE-FINE EARLY VENETIAN NEEDLEPOINT LACE
Size: 4.5″ x 161″
Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Feb 25, 2013 09:02:11 PST)
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A long, narrow needlealce, but I’m unsure of the date. The raised edges are a heavy wrapped cord which has been tacked down to the edges of the motifs with widely spaced couching stitches. The flat parts have some interesting stitch variations we;ll packed. But some the plain parts look almost like cloth, and a bit puckered, as if there’s been a tape laid down and the decorative stitches worked off to the side.  Other motifs look like perfectly reasonable needlelace linen stitch. Plus the whole thing is so beautifully intact that I’m thinking it’s a 19th c piece. Maybe an early Mezzo Punto piece, but then there’s that odd raised cordonnet. Condition looks very good.

http://tinyurl.com/9wnfuew ANTIQUE LACE-156″,396.cm OF BRUSSELS LACE
Size: 18″ x ~156″
Starting Price: $395.00
Auction ends: Feb 25, 2013 10:08:57 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A shorter piece of this border was listed last December, so I’ll just copy the review of that one.  A wide flounce of Brussels bobbin and needlelace application on machine net. The needlelace is located in the flower fillings, and also forms shading in the petals by using what looks like the Point de Gaze mesh stitch. A good naturalistic design, note the sprays of wheat as a motif. The design fills the entire space, with no esprits. I think this is a later 19th c piece.
One seam, seller cites scattered openings at the top. Basically good condition.
