There are a few lace offerings in this auction, lots 63 through 79. Lot 72 is a very good Duchesse flounce, 30″ x 100″. Five Alençon borders in lot 76, and 5 18th c Brussels bobbinlace borders – one looks like Mechlin. The Chantilly shawl in lot 68 looks handmade, but I wish there were more detailed closeups. There are also 3 Reticella borders; a bit hard to date really accurately.  There are also a few Irish Crochet garments later in the sale.

Bidding: You can sign up for online bidding at http://tinyurl.com/ct8mbxt through the liveauctioneers site. Buyer’s premium is 23%.
