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.
