Auction ends: Mar 08, 2013 05:37:55 PST

Comments: A very long, very wide border of tambour embroidery on machine net. It’s a little hard to get a sense of the design, but there’s a wide lower border of naturalistic flower sprays, with bunches of flowers scattered on the upper net.  No small esprits.  Seller notes some color shadings in the embroidery thread used, appears original. Overall it looks in very good condition.

Size: 15″ wide, 16.5″ high, base lace width 6″
Starting Price: $19.99
Auction ends: Mar 08, 2013 15:00:46 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller lady-linen, Seminole, Florida, United States
Comments: A large collar of Irish crochet. The design depends basically on long strings of raised petal flowers and a few shamrocks. There’s an interesting ground with round motifs on the neck edge, with brides on the outer edge.  Overall the work doesn’t seem quite as tight as a lot of advanced Irish Crochet, but the design is quite effective.

http://tinyurl.com/bosj6a5 ANTIQUE LACE HAND MADE BRUSSELS MIXED LACE (DUCHESSE LACE W/POINT DE GAZE) C1890
Size: 6.5″ x 96″
Starting Price: $45.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 08, 2013 18:02:01 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse border with raised petal rose Point de Gaze inserts. It’s a moderately narrow piece with a short repeat, but packs a lot into the small space.  I think those are pansies in the bobbinlace – unusual. Three small holes in the Pt de G mesh, fairly minor considering the length of the piece. Aside from that, condition looks very good.

Offered by: Ebay seller fleurdeslise, Rogers, Connecticut, United States
Comments: A set of cuffs of Brussels Duchesse. The Point de Gaze inserts are entirely made of decorative ‘mode’ fillings instead of the normal raised petal rose. This is unusual and quite effective. The bobbinlace is tight and well executed, overall quite a nice set in very good condition.

Comments: This is a new piece from Italy, and the post cites the website  http://www.ilfantasticomondodeltombolo.com, which is definitely worth a look. I don’t have time to figure out the translation, but it is a reminder of the unique work going on in Italy. This is a good tape lace piece, well done, with a bold design.

Auction ends: Mar 09, 2013 10:45:03 CET
Offered by: Ebay seller darbybrad, Concord, New Hampshire, United States
Comments: Quite an impressive Irish Crochet skirt with numerous and varied motifs. It appears to have been shaped from something else, although it is hard to imagine what the original large piece would have looked like. One seam up the back, and all is attached to a waistband. Looks in very good condition, seller cites some light dis-colorization and a broken thread or two.

http://tinyurl.com/cxfr9og HANDMADE Antique Vtg VICTORIAN BELGIAN BRUSSELS APPLIQUE LACE WEDDING VEIL SHAWL
Size: 75″ x 78″
Starting Price: $2,999.99 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: Mar 09, 2013 13:09:57 CET
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, United States
Comments: A high-end market veil of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.  This looks like there is the same design in all 4 corners. Wedding veils of this period often have a more oval shape with less decoration at one end for the headpiece. So I’m not entirely sure what the original purpose of this piece is, although one corner might be a little more rounded. Naturalistic pattern, and excellent esprits of two types in the main ground. The seller cites mild age discoloration, few loose threads and pinholes, and 2 well-done professional repairs on one side. Basically very good condition.

Comments: Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.  A shawl collar of Honiton Point lace – Honiton motifs with a needlelace ground.

Comments: This is a lappet scarf, all one piece. It is a continuous bobbinlace, so is not Duchesse, but I hesitate to say exactly what it is. Maybe Bucks, maybe Tonder.
