Size: each 5.5″ diameter, 1.5″ deep lace
Starting Price: $58.00
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 09:09:20 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller yellow_daisy, Carlisle, Massachusetts, United States
Comments:  A set of ten doilies in a Point de Paris variation. Note the unusual honeycomb ground along the edges. It has invaluable manufacturing information “10 lace doilies made in the school of Bayeux, France opposite the old chateau.” There isn’t much information on condition, but one doily is shown with spill stains. The rest appear to be in very good condition.

Size: 4.3″ x 305″
Starting Price: 49.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 11:07:41 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  This type of Chantilly, with the Fond Chant upper ground isn’t seen too often. It’s a fairly simple lace designed to be ruffled. The design is found from late 18th c throughout the 19th c. This particular piece is definitely French, but one should note that this kind of pattern was used in Ipswich, Massachusetts in the USA.  It does have 2 well-done joins and one sewn join, also one small hole. Basically good condition.

Starting Price: 38.00 EUR
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 11:11:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  A straight-edge Mechlin border. The design resembles contemporary Beveran lace patterns. The repeat is quite simple, but fulls the space well. Note the bud esprits covering the upper ground. Seller cites two small holes and a few orange marks. Basically in very good condition.  I did check with the seller, the picoted edge was sewn on later – this was often done in the 19th century to liven up older laces. It can probably be removed easily if desired.

Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  Three pieces of the same length of Le Puy guipure. One join and one hole on the longest piece, otherwise good condition.  This has a very typical picoted star bride ground, good guipure work with and without gimp, some on a point ground back ground. Long, narrow leaves are also typical of this work.

Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 12:43:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.  A shawl collar of bobbin tapelace, which has a Northern Italian flavor. Looks like linen, but would have to test the thread to make sure. The design appears to fit the shape, so I don’t think this is an earlier piece cut to fit. Probably a 19th c work. Looks in good condition from the photos – just a bit soft from wear.

Size: 4″ at widest, 38″ long
Starting Price: $19.99
Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 15:10:39 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lady-linen, Seminole, Florida
Comments:  A lappet scarf of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net. A few needlelace rings in the net for esprits.  The bobbin motifs are small and nicely done. The piece does have some discoloration, which should clean up well after washing – for a piece of this quality, get an expert to do this (I have suggestions). I don’t see any holes or other damage, so I’ll rate the condition as good.

Auction ends: Apr 15, 2013 15:11:43 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lady-linen, Seminole, Florida
Comments:  A dress front of silk Maltese. Nicely done guipure in the center section. The neck edge is a very simple lattice of leaves, and the outer edge has an elaborate St. John’s cross motif.  Note the plaited 6 pointed star ground – probably Gozo work. Seller cites minor age discoloration spot and 2 broken threads – basically very good condition.

Size: not given
Starting Price: 15.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2013 05:33:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller reddolly123, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A deep Maltese shawl collar tapering to pointed ends, made of cream silk.  Note the massive ground of woven leaves in the center – sun design around the neck edge, and maltese cross and flowers along the outer edge.  It’s an interesting piece, but I don’t quite like the way the guipure is handled amidst the mass of leaves at the back.  But a very good try. Looks in good condition from the photos.

Auction ends: 1 day 21 hours from 4/14/2013 9:37 AM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  Table linen collectors might gripe about the odd number of placemats, but overall this is a very good set. Point de Paris is known for its figural work, note the birds and flowerpots here. Harkening back to the ‘pottenkant lace’ days. Another interesting thing about Point de Paris – the clothwork is so dense and plain that it is a great match for linen cloth. This set has some good drawnwork in the linen. Looks in very good condition from the photos, just a little wrinkled from folds.

Starting Price: $59.00
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2013 07:28:38 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller pentiques, Candia, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A handkerchief of Irish Carrickmacross applique on machine net. Note the typical loops around the outer edge, and needlerun fillings in the net. This is a good non-standard fairly elaborate design.  It does have discoloration and staining problems, and a few minor holes, so I’ll have to rate condition just short of good. But I agree with the seller, a good wash by a properly trained person would do wonders for this piece. It deserves that kind of care.

Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2013 11:05:47 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.  A Rosaline perle collar. Not enough closeups to tell if the perls are needle or bobbin done.  The design is a bit unusual, larger motifs with extensive fillings, almost looking like tape lace in places. I don’t understand what is going on at the neck edge, the lace looks folded over some kind of band. Perhaps this could be removed? It doesn’t look original.   Overall good condition from the photos.

Starting Price: $24.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Apr 16, 2013 13:36:25 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  Three pieces of a black Duchesse de Bruxelles. This seller had a shawl of this for sale recently #370791599949.  It is obviously very unusual – black bobbin and needlelace. It might have been dyed. The work is a bit loose and there are no raised petals in the Point de gaze roses. The technique of the little sprigs with circles in the Point de Gaze looks a little odd. I’m thinking this might be an original work.  It is unfortunately in three pieces, but unusual enough that it doesn’t bother me.  Looks in overall good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A narrow scarf of Bruges Duchesse. It’s not quite the typical Bruges Bloemwerk, maybe halfway between Duchesse and Bloemwerk. The work is a little loose, but it give the piece a nice transparence.  Looks in very good condition from the photos.

Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A Chantilly fallcap. These are not seen very often. This one has a good design of flower medallions and lattice work – not much in the way of honeycomb stitch. I can’t see any condition problems from the photos – looks very good.

Comments:  An Duchesse handkerchief, monogrammed with the owner’s name, whose family was from Philadelphia and New York.  No date came with the piece. Nice interface with the center linen.  No raised work, no needlelace – but it has a nice presence.  Very minor defects, overall very good condition.

Comments:  An Brussels Duchesse dress front with triangular frontpiece. There is a small Point de Gaze insert in the center with raised rose petals. The overall lace design is quite conventional and the technique fairly standard. But the form is unusual and nicely fitted to the female form.  I could wear this to work, if I wasn’t retired. Very minor defects, basically very good condition.

Comments:  A set of Italian Cantu bobbinlace – a collar and two triangular pieces. I don’t know what those are either. But everything seems to match well, and all are in very good condition.  They are very typical of the non-figural type of this lace.

Comments:  A fallcap of Honiton guipure. It is trying to break out of snails/slugs mode, and has quite a nice design. Note the regular picoted bride mesh.  Seller says it is darker than in the photos, with a few broken brides, nothing major. Overall good condition.

Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse border, good width and length.  The bobbin motifs are a bit large with a little raised work, somewhat on the Bruges side. I think the Point de Gaze roses have raised petals, but it’s hard to tell. It’s a bold piece, making good use of a conventional design. Appears in very good condition.

Comments:  I’m putting these two together because the designs are so similar. Almost the inverse of each other. Point de Gaze inserts with raised petal roses in oval frames of small flowers. Rather windswept flowers in between. It does look like these came from the same manufacturer.  Comes with a purchase provenance. Both look in very good condition.

Comments:  A rectangular shawl of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. Fairly small, well worked motifs – I like the zigzag bar fillings.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. A collar of muslin applique on machine net and needlerun fillings. Note the very heavy embroidered motifs used as flower buds. It might be Carrickmacross, but doesn’t have the typical Irish motifs, and no spiked or looped picots on the edge. Carrickmacross applique also usually has a few guipure elements. But I’m not sure what else to call it. The needlerun fillings are great and completely fill the ground; reminds me of a Dresden drawnwork.  There are numerous holes, so I agree with the seller at rating it short of good. But I’m not really bothered by that because it is so unusual.

Comments: The lace on this fan looks like Rosaline perle. The sticks are Mother-of-Pearl, probably from Abalone shells.Rosaline fans are a bit unusual, although one did come up for sale on Ebay in late March, #221203589988, without perls.

Comments: A typical Maltese undulating pattern border; Maltese crosses alternating with a leaf grid. Looking at the closeups, I wonder if this piece is made of linen.

Comments: Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw, pictured in “A Dictionary of Lace”. A Bedfordshire dress front, that seems to extend all the way around the shoulders, and I’m not exactly sure how this drapes. Two cuffs, presumably matching.  This is a fairly complex pattern with a star shaped filling, trails of leaves, and raised leaves on clothstitch (not the usual halfstitch) ground.  The neckline border on the collar is nicely looped.  Overall very good condition, although there aren’t many closeups to examine.
