Offered by: Ebay seller sugarbaby2011, MB Canada
Comments: A Point de Gaze handkerchief of very good design and condition. Raised rose petals, and it doesn’t go overboard on the mode fillings. But they are used to good effect.  Note the fold marks on this and compare to the Point d’Angleterre example below. Seller notes two pinholes in the mesh, but overall the condition is exceptional.

http://tinyurl.com/czt42us ANTIQUE LACE HAND MADE BRUSSELS BOBBINLACE C 1750
Size: 2 pieces, each 3.25″ x 39″
Starting Price: 165.00
Auction ends: Mar 01, 2013 13:02:59 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: Two lengths of early Flemish bobbinlace, I’m thinking around 1730. A bold flowing design nicely worked. This is one of the great periods in bobbinlace making.  The condition is short of good with numerous stains and breaks. It looks to me like the picoted edge is a later addition – this was often done in the 19th c to ‘revive’ older laces.

Size: ~ 6 feet across
Starting Price: $150.00
Auction ends: Mar 01, 2013 17:03:33 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller decoherence2, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: Amazing how many good handmade Chantilly shawls have come up on Ebay in the past few months. Here’s another one, unfortunately not many photos.  Typical wide border with small flowers in lozenge shaped openings, and flowers and swags in the middle section.  I’ve heard from the seller on the condition of this piece, there is a little separation from the gimp at both the right and left points. On the basis of the seller’s comments I’ll raise the condition of the piece to very good.

Offered by: Ebay seller superchi.nadia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A Italian figural piece, seller says it comes from  Offida in the Italian Marche region.  The porcupine and crown must be a symbol of something, but I’m not sure what.  This is very nicely worked and in very good condition. One of the better small figural pieces I’ve seen.

Comments: A rather abruptly cut off border of Rosaline. No perls, but plenty of raised edges.  This lace with its small, delicate motifs is always impressive looking. Condition appears very good in this piece.

http://tinyurl.com/cggyue2 19th Century ANTIQUE Black Chantilly LACE SHAWL ~ Florius Piece! 108″ x 56″ deep
Size: 56″ x 108″
Starting Price: $95.00
Auction ends: Mar 02, 2013 18:00:39 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller vintageblessings, Meridian, Idaho, United States
Comments: Another Chantilly shawl. It looks very dark, normally a sign of Belgian manufacture, but that’s a little anecdotal. I think it is lighter than it looks.  Note all the rings organized into grape patterns, quite unusual, and large area of honeycomb stitch – at least I think that’s what it is, that gives depth to the pattern.. Might be a more point de paris stitch which would point more toward Spain – photos aren’t detailed enough.. The design is very dense, even to the esprits in the ground. Condition appears a bit rough. A serious hole along the top edge, and sometimes the ground looks a little shredded (see near the bottom point).  But overall this is a very interesting piece.

http://tinyurl.com/chtw67k ANTIQUE LACE HANDMADE PRETTY CHANTILLY LACE FOLD OVER SHAWL C 1890

Starting Price: $45.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 02, 2013 18:41:19 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: A mantilla shaped Chantilly headpiece. The more highly decorated half is meant to fold over the the plainer half. Since Chantilly appears very similar on both sides this works very well. 3 or 4 pinholes in the net, 2 small holes in the design. But these are minor, overal very good condition.

Size: not given
Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 06:03:06 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse fan with faux tortoiseshell sticks. The lace is in very good condition with barely a pinhole in the Point de Gaze insert. The needlelace has a double layer of raised petals on one rose, otherwise quite flat.  Good raised work on the Duchesse along with a few needlelace fillings. This is a better quality item in both design and workmanship.

http://tinyurl.com/cet9lt9 BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN BRUSSELS LACE FAN WITH MOTHER OF PEARL STICKS.
Size: 11.25″ long, 21″ wide, lace 6″ deep
Starting Price: 95.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 07:35:41 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller georginanntiques, London, United Kingdom
Comments: The cream silk background on this fan makes the lace difficult to see. The lace is a Duchesse bobbinlace, without a Point de Gaze insert. There is however, a needlelace ‘rose’ filling right in the center of the piece.  The lace is of good quality, but rather stained.  The mother of pearl sticks are quite colorful, with some repairs. A few sticks are loose and need to be backed to the backing.  Overall condition is basically good.

Comments: A Carrickmacross applique fan with looped edge picots. Comes with box and has mother of pearl sticks.  All appears undamaged, very good condition. Seller does site a little marking on the folds, but this is minor.  Good Art Nouveau design, extensive needlerun fillings, and some embroidery on the muslin.

Comments: An Irish crochet collar with long front points. Interesting motifs some with a kind of frilled edge. Raised work in the form of padded rings, and the picots look like crocheted loops. Motifs look a little abstract, but overall it works nicely. Very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/cw499xp AMAZING 108 Inch piece of Handmade Vintage Duchesse Bobbin Lace

Starting Price: $25.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 12:46:10 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller linen-cupboard, Crawcrook, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom
Comments: An impressive looking 19th c Belgian bobbinlace flounce. Closeups aren’t detailed enough to tell definitively, but I think the grounds are needle-made. Which puts this more in the point d’Angleterre category, but it is also more a copy of the earlier Flemish Brabant-type laces.  Overall very good condition, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

Starting Price: $295.00
Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 18:49:49 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller kuchcollectiblesandvintagelinens, United States
Comments: An matched handkerchief and lappet scarf.  It looks like it’s never even been unpacked, much less used.  The lace is a good quality Belgian Point d’Angleterre, bobbinlace motifs with Point de Gaze ground.  It does a lot with basically tow motifs, a small flower with buttonholed perl centers, and a large leaf design. Comes with documentation dating it to 1874.

Comments: An Rosaline collar, no perls.  Hard to tell the actual shape since it is shown on the manikin.  It has some broken brides and a gap on one side as shown in the photos. Basically good condition, seems a little wrinkled.

Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 20:20:18 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller taste-t-vintage, Eureka, California, United States
Comments: An interesting frontpiece of elaborate guipure design. Certainly could be Beds. Although an elaborate French Cluny is also a possibility, and perhaps more consistent with the size of the thread. Still, the looped picots on the brides are more English.  Overall very good condition, seller cites just a few stains.

221192741244   Sold for $28.55, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/cpp7h5x Antique Irish Crochet Lace Collar

Starting Price: $9.99
Auction ends: Mar 03, 2013 20:21:05 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller taste-t-vintage, Eureka, California, United States
Comments: An Irish Crochet collar that probably wasn’t made in Ireland. We aren’t really sure, but these types of collars might be Austrian. Also not sure which part goes in front.  The work in this is quite simple, the design depends on different densities of grounds united with daisies around the edge. Looks in very good condition, seller cites overall yellowing.

221192741331   Sold for $14.50, 3 bidders.

Auction ends: Mar 04, 2013 12:q6:48 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: Two lappets joined together, mid 18th century. Brussels bobbinlace with droschel ground. There is a separate similar piece added in the center that appears to have been cut to fit, so I’m unsure how long the actual lappets are.  The motifs in this piece fill out the design well, but are a little conventional. And there are only two types of fillings – note the breaks in the picoted bride filling.  The droschel is in remarkably good condition.   Overall I’d rate this as good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller cynthia_fagen, Fernandina Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: A collar of Duchesse de Bruxelles. There is a flat Point de Gaze insert in the center.  It is very difficult to evaluate the photos with the light background but at least it shows that it is of a fairly even color except for a little staining around the neckline. The lace looks in very good condition, at least from what I can tell from the photos.
