Ebay Alerts! Seventeen items – March 31, 2013

http://tinyurl.com/d87sl46 Antique/vintage Bedfordshire lace collar
Size: the display is 27″ x 40″
Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 01, 2013 11:22:11 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. The condition of this piece is rather short of good, but it is so interesting that I thought I’d put it up. With the delicately worked brides and tallies it does appear to be in the Beds style. But it lacks the definitive looped latticework edging – instead it goes for a more woven openwork. Fascinating. It is remarkably similar to the recently sold ebay item 390553302475.

Size: 16.5″ x 17″
Starting Price: $325.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Apr 01, 2013 14:25:53 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller twist-in-time, United States
Comments:  A large, impressive looking handkerchief of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.  The lace has a few minor pinholes, overall very good condition, and the center cloth has a few holes. The design is so geometric that it reminds me of reticella or punto in aria.  It does look like the roses in the corners are done in needlelace.

Size: 16.5″ x 17″
Starting Price: 16.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 02, 2013 15:55:41 H.Esp
Offered by: Ebay seller malin0693, Comunidad Valenciana, España
Comments:  There aren’t many photos of this handkerchief, but it might be an Almagro guipure. Difficult to find good examples of this lace outside of Spain, and unfortunately it looks like the seller ships only inside Spain. But you could ask.  Looks in basically good condition.

Auction ends: Apr 02, 2013 08:11:04 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mylittleboyke, Borgloon, Belgium
Comments:  A semicircular hat veil of Chantilly lace.  Note the eyelets in the straight edge which are designed to hold a ribbon which gathers the lace around the back of the hat. The design is fairly simple, and I think I see a few minor pulls in the net. Looks in good condition overall.

Auction ends: Apr 02, 2013 10:58:28 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller atelier1900, Galliard, France
Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse collar with 9 deep points – quite an unusual form. No raised work in the point de gaze inserts, but they do have quite nice ‘mode’ fillings. Looks in very good condition from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/dxw3b7l Beautiful antique/vintage Irish crochet lace collar white daisies
Size: not given
Starting Price: 22.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 02, 2013 12:06:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. This is a very recognizable Irish Crochet variant in a collar with long lappet ends. It is basically small 8-petaled flowerheads arranged in groups of three, each flower has a raised ring center. That’s the only motif, and you see this arrangement in many forms. I think the picots are crocheted, not Clones knots. The piece has been washed, and seller notes a few small repairs. Basically very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/cubde7x Antique/vintage Maltese lace handkerchief edge
Size: 13″ square
Starting Price: 5.15 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 02, 2013 12:24:39 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  It wouldn’t be an Ebay Alert without at least one Maltese piece. I like this one because of the interesting spiderweb used in the central mesh. A few minor holes, but basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/cxfldn3 ANTIQUE FAN- 19THC. BRUSSELS LACE FAN W/POINT DE GAZE
Size: not given
Starting Price: $595.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: around April 3rd
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse fan with dark faux tortoiseshell sticks. Raised petal roses in the central Point de Gaze insert, note the higher quality pointed petals. Overall both the bobbin and needlelace is very well done.  The condition also looks very good, I don’t see any problems from the photos. Seller notes that one stick needs reattaching.

Size: not given
Starting Price: 5.15 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 03, 2013 11:19:20 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. A narrow, long collar of Irish Crochet. The motifs are interesting and tightly worked, note the well-done raised work and nice picots on the edges of the motifs. This piece is reaching back toward the Gros Point origins of this lace, although not quite there.  Picots look like little double crocheted loops. There is some fraying in some of the pointed edgework. Overall good condition.

Starting Price: $195.00
Auction ends: Apr 03, 2013 15:03:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  An impressive looking Point de Gaze fan leaf in very good condition. Seller cites only a few small age spots. The lace has no raised work, and is better for the flat design. It has a well-filled naturalistic design with a pleasing asymmetry.  Good ‘mode’ fillings throughout.

Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse shawl collar with raised petal roses in the Point de Gaze inserts.  Well done with a better Duchesse design, especially in the needlelace. Overall very good condition, seller cites a few minor reattachments needed.

http://tinyurl.com/dy4ubws HANDMADE Antique Vtg VITORIAN BELGIAN BRUSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE WEDDING SKIRT
Size: 36″ x 214″
Starting Price: $2,999.99 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: 2 days 18 hours from 3/31/2013 6:14 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, United States
Comments:  A very wide crinoline flounce of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. Maybe even too wide for a crinoline, you can basically use it as a skirt as it stands, on an appropriate background. The design fills the large space well, and note the regular esprits running all the way to the top. It is a romantic design, although the individual motifs look a little plain to me – for example there doesn’t seem to be any raised work, just gimp outlines, and very simple needlelace fillings. But I’m nitpicking here. This piece has been valued – you can see some well done repairs in the net. Overall very good condition.

Starting Price: $65.00
Auction ends: Apr 03, 2013 15:24:51 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A narrow scarf of Duchesse. There are a few ‘mode’ needlelace fillings, but basically this relies on very well done bobbinlace motifs.  Good raised work, naturalistic design.  Seller cites a few breaks and some minor age stains. Basically good condition.

151019822362   Sold for $102.50, 3 bidders.

Starting Price: $65.00
Auction ends: Apr 03, 2013 16:30:59 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A bonnet veil of embroidered net. Flat embroidery with varied needle-run fillings. It could be Limerick, but Lier is also a possibility.  It has the large flower spray design that you also see in the Caen blondes. A few pulls and mall openings, seller cites some repairs, but basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/bm3fwaq Antique/vintage Brussels Point de Gaze lace butterfly
Size: 3.5″ x 2.8″
Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 04, 2013 12:22:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A point de gaze butterfly with double wings. These are basically a 20th century tourist item development, and quality varies a lot. This one is nice, although it doesn’t have any fancy ‘mode’ fillings.  The stabilizing thread holding the antennae is broken (sometimes this is not present). But it is generally in very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller sewingoods, Hamden, Connecticut, United States
Comments:  A Chantilly lappet scarf.  Not a particularly fancy design, but it is well made and works nicely for the form. A little frayed along the edges at the ends, but basically in good condition.

Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 05, 2013 11:46:22 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Beds collar with flower and leaf design. Nicely done raised tallies on the whole stitch cloth. You can find similar patterns, referred to as ‘rose and leaf’ in catalogs from the Bucks Cottage Workers Agency by Harry Armstrong, dated around 1910.  Some of the edgings on this piece look a little twisted, but I don’t think that’s serious. Basically good condition overall.
