http://tinyurl.com/c9zaq48 1890 Antique handmade Belgian Brussels Muslin Applique lace shawl / cape
Size: border 24cm deep, total 180 cm wide, 74 cm deep
Starting Price: 30.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 05, 2013 03:52:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller garchick, Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom
Comments:  A triangular shawl with a deep separate border, all of muslin application on machine net. The tamboured edges of the motifs would indicate a Brussels origin. The seller has a very nice technical description of the piece. It does remind me a bit of certain Spanish mantilla forms, although there’s no photo of the piece laid out completely, so it is hard to tell. Seller cites a few small holes in the net and one repair – basically good condition.

Size: 2.75″ x 64″
Starting Price: 36.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 07, 2013 08:25:11 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller pbur3053, Selkirk, United Kingdom
Comments:  Belgian lace never fails to surprise. This one has a kind of Duchesse motif base, upon which is laid some raised needlelace cordonets and rings. Note the fairly elaborate ‘mode’ needlelace fillings. The brides are interesting, unfortunately the photos aren’t close enough to tell exactly how they are maid. They look like a narrow woven tape with some kind of picoted decoration. I haven’t seen this kind of thing before. The piece is fairly long, with one join. Seller cites some broken brides – basically good condition.

Comments:  A square shawl or veil of Honiton applique on machine net. It has the beautiful white net with a great drape that you associate with Honiton applique. The motifs are rather snails/slugs, organized as flower sprays in the corner, and a simple rose and leaf border around the edge. Seller cites some small discoloration and there are a few small holes in the net, expected for something like this, and minor defects. Overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/c38xfuj MOTHER WITH BABY 1907 FRENCH ART MEDAL by DAUTEL
Size: 7 cm x 4.5 cm
Starting Price: $85.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Apr 07, 2013 16:15:58 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller fabrice59, nord, France
Comments:  A rectangular bronze  medallion by Pierre Victor Dautel, dated 1907.  It’s a beautiful design meant to represent a Valenciennes lacemaker. Dautel actually made two medallions of lacemakers, the second one is round.  This one looks in good shape, although it’s difficult to evaluate bronze medallions until you have them in your hand. The patina on the side with the lacemaker looks a little uneven, but that might just be the photography. The relief is quite crisp.

Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 08, 2013 10:29:22 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. A deep shawl collar of black silk guipure with a decided Le Puy flavor to the design. Although it isn’t a really typical Le Puy design and the grounds are a little different. This is one of those puzzling cases where it might even be a Russian piece. Fairly unusual and quite impressive looking. It looks in very good condition.

Comments:  An impressive rectangular shawl of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.

Extensive esprits, both dots and buds cover the entire net. Looks unused, very good condition.  There are no closeups of the tag that the seller mentions, would like to know what that says.
