Two types of Point de Gaze – raised petal rose inserts with PtdG ground, and single needlelace roses on the lower edge. This was a higher end market piece.  Seller cites some light brown storage marks and minor breaks and a small hole at one end.

Auction ends: Mar 19, 2013, 13:30:10 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. Another one of these ‘Point de Gaze guipure’ pieces, quite a complex collar.  Note the interesting brides.  this type of lace relies extensively on complex cordonnet work, rather simple fillings, and a flat appearance. Yet it has quite a pleasing lightness. Seller cites a few breaks, and a little problem on the inside collar ends. They look like minor issues to me. Basically good condition.

Comments: A collar of Brussels application on machine net. Unfortunately there’s no photo of the thing spread out, but is appears fairly compact. Nice dense design which fills the space well. A few simple needlelace fillings, but it really relies on the bobbinlace. Neckline discoloration, and the seller cites 3 small holes in the net. Basically good condition.

Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 20, 2013, 12:31:49 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. Occasionally you find Ñanduti in silk, and this is a good example. It’s an older piece with complex work in the sol motifs and in the joinings between motifs. It has some curious ‘piecing’ going on in the collar points, which I think is original. It has a wonderful gleam and looks in very good condition.

Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 21, 2013, 11:33:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A Maltese shawl with lappet ends. Yes, the edges are a little ragged, but I like the large guipure motif in back, and the complex grid of tallies and ‘snowflake’ designs in the ground. Very unusual. So the condition is short of good, but it’s worth a second look.

    Hi Laurie,
    Just one comment for : 3,25 m d’ancienne dentelle tulle brodé, , couture linge ancien
    it sound a bit strange to me you are related this lace to an Arras lace since Arras lace is always made with a point ground net wich is also called “Lille” ground
    This is a Mechlin lace from 1800, this design is really typical from the French “DIrectoire” style.

  2. lacenews says:

    Good point – the lace is obviously Mechlin, but the design seems more aligned with Arras point ground work. You also see it in Valenciennes of this early 19th c period. My comments rely on Emil Hannover’s “Tonderske Kniplinger”, a book not easy to find, and despite the title it covers much more than Tønder lace. He illustrates both Arras and Mechlin laces of design very similar to this; but far more are shown in the Arras category. The Lille and Bucks examples he shows is always more free in design, and might be a little later in date. I should make this the subject of a ‘lace of the month’ post – once I get back to doing those.

    • Claude says:

      Well, you are talking here about design and a design from the late 18thc period.
      For sure we will find this kind of design in differents technical of laces, Mechlin, Arras, Lille, Valencienne or even “tulle brode” lace, since this kind of simple clear design was then in the fashion.
      The point is: should we called the laces from the ground related to each specific technical of lace, or should we connect them together according with the design…….?
      This could be an interresting subject, but as allways, it will take time to write about it…..

  3. lacenews says:

    I am convinced. When this comes up again I’m going to call it ‘the type of lace’, French “Directoire” style, early 19th c. I think that’s a good solution until somebody investigates this further.

  4. lacenews says:

    Oops. Late 18th early 19th c.
