http://tinyurl.com/bnqsdxa Antique Wide Tape Cord Lace Bertha collar LG Brussels Battenburg
Size: not given explicity, but ruler looks like 17″ across when laid flat.
Starting Price: $14.95
Auction ends: Apr 18, 2013 17:04:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller raggedyandrea, Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments:  The heavy gimp on this piece reminds me of Miracourt, but not quite as bold. The islands in the Brides and the general form of the motifs are more like Bruges Bloemwerk, so I think I’ll go with that.  It is an interesting design; a bit naive but with a lot of presence. Condition looks very good from the photos.

Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 19, 2013 11:03:55 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. Kind of a strange embroidered machine net collar, black thread on a cream net that looks white in the photos.  The embroidery is needlerun.  Interesting how the white net is used to give texture to the motifs. I’m at a loss on an attribution here. Looks in very good condition from the photos.

Comments:  A muslin applique machine net rectangular shawl. The motifs are attached with tambour embroidery, a sign of Belgian work.  It has a simple repeat of flowers around the entire edge, and no esprits in the main ground. A few small repairs and tiny holes, washed and soft, basically good condition.

Comments:  A Duchesse bertha, on the Bruges side. Some work on halfstitch in various flower petals, no needlelace inserts.  A nice looking piece, well done with a well thought out assembly of flowers and swags. The motifs are quite crisp. Looks in very good condition from the photos.

Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  I’m putting these two pieces together since the origin is the same. Unusual documented products of the wives of English missionary workers in Nagercoil, India, which is right on the most southern tip of the country. The work continues today in places like Chennai. These two pieces, in very good, unused condition with original labels are wonderful survivors.  Note how the first one has a lot of similarity to Beds work.

http://tinyurl.com/dyour88 Antique Brussels Duchesse and Point de Gaze Ivory Lace Collar and Matching Cuffs
Size: collar 44″ neck edge, 57″ outer edge, 10.5″ center depth. cuffs 3.25″ x 9″
Starting Price: $49.99
Auction ends: Apr 20, 2013 16:19:03 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller dynamopix09, Reading, Massachusetts, United States
Comments:  A shawl collar of Duchesse de Bruxelles, and 2 cuffs of Duchesse. The collar has three Point de Gaze inserts with a raised petal rose in each, along with some interesting buttonholed ring decorations.  Hard call if the cuffs are meant to match, no Pt de G, and the design of the Duchesse on both is quite typical of this lace.  The bobbinlace on the collar is in good shape, although it does have that wrinkled washed look. I see a pinhole or two in the Pt de G.  A few broken brides on the cuffs. Overall good condition on both.

Offered by: Ebay seller lacechest, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States
Comments:  A collar of Duchesse de Bruxelles with exceptionally large, well done Point de Gaze inserts (no raised rose petals).  Note also the raised work on the bobbinlace flowers at the shoulder points.  The condition of this piece appears very good, especially in the needlelace.

Auction ends: Apr 21, 2013 09:51:26 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lacechest, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States
Comments:  A squarish collar, perhaps a dress front of Duchesse.  There aren’t any Point de Gaze inserts, but there are a few needlelace fillings.  Standard Duchesse motifs, well worked, and it looks in very good condition.  Just a little collar variation along the neckline. Some history is given in the writeup.

Auction ends: Apr 21, 2013 11:30:55 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments:  A typically long, reasonably wide flounce of Chantilly.  Not a particularly complex design, and the dark thread makes me think it might be of Belgian origin.  The seller shows a photo with one small hole, and mentions one or two small breaks toward the top edge.  Basically very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/br3a7ba 19TH CENTURY SUPERB LENGTH OF ANTIQUE IVORY LACE
Size: 3″ x 39″
Starting Price: 8.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 21, 2013 12:41:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller smugersmith, Ashbourne,, Derbyshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A border of late 19th or 20th c Burano needlealce.  Note the ‘partridge eye’ fillings, almost if this is trying to copy Argentalla. However the motifs themselves are a bit clumsy in design, so it’s hard to pull off an effective copy. The technique is quite good, and the seller notes a few storage marks. I don’t find any problems in the photos with condition (very good). Just wish there were more of it.

Comments:  A typically large embroidered net handkerchief.  Tambour embroidery, good needlerun fillings.  Not the pulled thread work in some flower petals.  A little discoloration, but overall very good condition.

Auction ends: Apr 21, 2013 13:27:55 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller poppy1109, Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments:  Another embroidered net handkerchief from this seller, this one fairly small. Tambour embroidery with some variation in stitch spacing to give a little shaded look.  No needlerun fillings that I can see.  See also Ebay #390575280102 for another embroidered net hanky from this seller.
This example is in good condition, it does have a few stains and some separations from the cloth.

Offered by: Ebay seller apseam, Norwood, Massachusetts, United States
Comments:  I’m putting these three together because they are so similar. Small collars with pointed backs and tabs, all three are Point de Gaze.  The third one has a lot of fraying, a little short of good condition, the other two look very good from the photos. I think I like the design on the second one the best – a little shading and some innovative cross hatching in the body.

Offered by: Ebay seller ll-antiques, Montgomery Village, Maryland, United States
Comments:  These two items look like Armenian needlelace.  The second one does look like a small purse, but the first one I’m not sure. It is in the shape of what you sometimes see labeled as a tea cosy. And I think the size is reasonable for that – you would have to line it with something to protect against the heat.  The design of both is similar and interesting – note the rings in the centers of the flowers.  Both look in unused very good condition.

Comments:  A fairly deep Cluny gupuire collar, probably French.  Good leaf work, with raised leaves on the trails.  Seller cites one small discoloration mark, and it looks a bit wrinkled. Basically very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller theantiqueswarehouse, United States
Comments:  A long shawl collar and two cuffs of Point de Gaze.  Raised petal roses in both, and note the variation on the ‘mode’ fillings in the cuffs.  The set doesn’t exactly match, but they could be from the same manufacturer.  There are a number of small pinholes in both, more in the cuffs.  Basically good condition on both.
