http://tinyurl.com/cfzp5tv Antique Bobbin Lace Winged Lion of Venice / St. Mark Box Venetian Venezia
Size: 5″ square x 1″ deep
Starting Price: $14.99
Auction ends: Mar 15, 2013 04:34:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sea*nymph, Oakland Gardens, New York, United States
Comments: An interesting construction using Italian figural bobbinlace. Probably from the Venetian area, perhaps Pellistrina? The St. Mark’s lion is an old Venetian symbol. The lion forms the lid of a box whose wire frame supports further bobbinlace around the edges. Brown discoloration overall, one broken bride, and the cloth in the bottom is a bit frayed. But overall good condition for an unusual item.

Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 03:10:36 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller calexa2010, Coupeville, Washington, United States
Comments: A handkerchief of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net. It’s a large size, typical of this kind of work in a hanky.  I especially like the grid of needlelace nodes with the bobbinlace motif at the center – unusual. And the edging along the cloth is nicely done. Two whitework embroidered initials in the cloth. Overall very good condition, just one brown stain in the cloth.

http://tinyurl.com/a7e2cqx Stunning Antique Victorian Honiton Lace Wedding Veil Large Size
Size: 180 cm x 170 cm
Starting Price: $125.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 07:36:58 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller vintage-rooms, Newbury, Berkshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A square shawl of Honiton appliqued on machine net. The motifs are large and only a little on the snails/slugs side, but nicely done. Good tally fillings. Honiton applique normally uses a stronger white net with a wonderful drape, and this is a good example. The condition appears exceptional, seller cites 4 pinholes in the net and a little foxing.  Has a provenance, same family for three generations.  That may or may not take it back to the original owner, but even this much information is unusual.

Starting Price: 35.00 EUR
Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 21:07:31 MEZ (middle european time)
Offered by: Ebay seller annenetti, Plauen, Deutschland
Comments: A German Klöppelstand (just the front one in the photo). I love these things and they are normally in good enough condition to use. This one appears very solid and has a nice patina from years of use. Seller only ships to Germany, but I find if you ask nicely they might try shipping elsewhere.

http://tinyurl.com/a3ae9xp EXQUISITE ANTIQUE 1900 HAND MADE BRUSSELS DUCHESSE/POINT DE GAZE LACE COLLAR
Size: 66 cm tall. Pillow ‘basket’ 30 cm long and 20 cm wide
Starting Price: $24.99
Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 15:43:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lady-linen, Seminole, Florida, United States
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse shawl collar. The central Point de Gaze insert has a raised petal rose, flat work in the other inserts. I like the little bobbinlace flowers with the plaited edgings, haven’t seen that before. There are a few tiny holes in the Point de Gaze mesh and a few broken brides.  It does have a bit of a dusty, slightly wrinkled look, but that might just be the photography. I’m not sure of the exact color.  Basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/b3424ye SUPER LARGE ANTIQUE HAND MADE CLONES IRISH CROCHET LACE COLLAR~MANY 3D MOTIFS
Size: 15″ neckline, 8.5″ deepest width.
Starting Price: $19.99
Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 15:43:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lady-linen, Seminole, Florida, United States
Comments: An impressive looking Irish Crochet collar. It almost looks like two collars joined together, but looking closely at the outside edge of the horseshoe inner piece, I think it’s original.  I love the juxtaposition of the large motifs and the inner regularity of the horseshoe pattern.  I think the picots are something like tightly bunched double crochet, not Clones knots, but it’s a bit hard to tell. Good raised work on the large motifs, and note there are a few needlelace stitches in the centers of the shamrocks. Which could mark this as an earlier piece. Overall very good condition, seller mentions only one area of age discoloration.

Size: 12″ square
Starting Price: $0.99
Auction ends: Mar 16, 2013 18:49:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller nutting13, Livonia, New York, United States
Comments: A Duchesse handkerchief. Standard motifs used in quite an effective design. No raised work, but it really doesn’t need any. The condition appears very good, just some small pulling away from the central cloth and a broken bride or two.

http://tinyurl.com/au3t3j9 Brussels Lace – Bobbin and Needle Lace Wedding Set
Size: flounce 306cm x 44 cm, tapering to 32 cm.
Starting Price: 80.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 09:27:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller tropez24a, LINLITHGOW, West Lothian, United Kingdom
Comments: A matching parure of Brussels Application on machine net. I think the motifs are needlelace, although the seller says there is also some bobbin work. Photos not close enough to tell. There is a flounce, collar, two sleeve ruffles and a dress front, all matching. The dress front looks a little odd, as if it’s been forced to conform to the rest of the design. But the rest seem fine. One hole in the dress front, seller cites some small/tiny holes in the machine net on all pieces. Basically in good condition, and an interesting set.

http://tinyurl.com/a9cnjak Wide antique/vintage Brussels net on net appliqué lace flounce – spotted tulips
Size: 34″ x 2 yards 29″
Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 11:43:53 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A long, wide flounce of net applique on machine net. Seller says the edges of the motifs are tambour, but it’s hard to tell from the photos. This net on net technique gives the piece a great lightness.  The design is quite sophisticated for an applique – note also the extensive esprits in the ground. Condition looks good, there is some damage to the top edge, some repairs and a few small holes. Some of the net is coming away from the tambour.

Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 18:51:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller kuchcollectiblesandvintagelinens, United States
Comments: A Point de Gaze lappet scarf, flat type needlelace.  The fillings are extremely simple; the piece relies on design for effect.  It’s a nice try.  There are several small holes in the mesh. Basically good condition overall.

Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 19:00:49 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller 2posies4u, United States
Comments: This really isn’t Torchon, it’s geometric but more on the Beds/Cluny side. Not sure exactly what it is – Spanish or German or French, maybe English. On of those indeterminate guipures. There is a good amount of it, in very good condition.

Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 19:15:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller gb-best, New Ringgold, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A Point de Gaze handkerchief, later 19th century. This is the flat type of needlelace where design can be excellent. This piece has some condition issues, lots of holes, and it has some wrinkles that you see in pieces that have been washed. Some photos have also been taken from the backside.  The design is nicely done, with the Point de Gaze stitch around the edges of some flowers giving them an almost ombre look.  Extensive nicely done fillings.

Size: 1-1/4″ x 93″
Starting Price: $9.99
Auction ends: Mar 17, 2013 21:00:10 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller taste-t-vintage, Eureka, California, United States
Comments: A very narrow white bobbinlace border or insertion, and the thread looks like cotton. Halfstitch clothwork, honeycomb fillings. There’s a kat stitch ground above and point ground along the edge. So I don’t know where it comes from, but am tending a bit toward English.  You find these variations both in Bucks and Chantilly. A small, unusual piece in very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller amberfarleigh, Richmond, N. Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A square shawl of Honiton applique on machine net- much like the one reviewed above.  Large densely worked motifs on that wonderful net, and note the good tally fillings. The design is a bit predictable. Two professional repairs to the net and some pinholes. Overall good condition.

Starting Price: 49.99 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 18, 2013 09:19:22 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: A remade collar of what could be Point de France, due to the hexagonal picoted brides. It looks like it was made from two narrower lengths sewn together lengthwise. Who knows how much cut down it was before that. Wish I could get this under the microscope to study the exact stitch structure.  For a very old lace the condition looks good.

Auction ends: Mar 18, 2013 09:43:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: A ‘fallcap’ of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net.  Good delicate motifs with some nice zigzag fillings. The form is a little odd, it goes down all the way to the neck in back.  But all the lace seems to have been designed specifically for this piece. A few minor pulls and tiny holes, but overall it looks in very good condition.

Starting Price: 32.00 EUR
Auction ends: Mar 18, 2013 11:57:33 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments: A border of Mechlin with good, light design. I’m not convinced that it is 18th c, it looks a little too simple and light, and in too good shape for earlier than the 2nd half of the 19th c.  Looks in very good condition from the photos, and is a nice collectible length.

Auction ends: Mar 18, 2013 12:09:51 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments: A black triangular embroidered net shawl. Needlerun stitches, and the design recalls the black blondes of Caen as well as machine blonde copies. Note the extensive flowers in the main ground. There are some unfortunate tears at the points, so these areas are a bit ragged. Rest looks in good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.  A Nanduti collar with attached fringe. The center part seems to have been cut from something larger – note how the tips are only partial motifs. This is an earlier piece with more complex roundel work.  Overall good condition.

Auction ends: Mar 18, 2013 18:12:27 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller vintagerose2000, Saint Louis, Missouri, United States
Comments: An impressive looking Brussels Duchesse bertha. It has a structured, vertically symmetric look – everything seems to point downward. The Point de Gaze inserts have no raised work, and don’t need any.  The design is quite crowded, but works well. A few pinholes in 5 of the needlelace inserts, very minor defects in the lace. Overall very good condition.

Comments: A narrow scarf of Point de Gaze.  Good design, and some nice ‘mode’ fillings at the ends. The piece does have a number of small holes in the Point de Gaze mesh, all along its length.  Seller has provided excellent photos. The holes are scattered around enough that it doesn’t bother me very much, especially for a piece of this quality. So I’ll rate the condition as good.
