http://tinyurl.com/cx3dh7b Lovely Antique Binche – Valenciennes Bobbin Lace Border. 38×2.5in (96x6cm)
Size: 2.5″ x 38″
Starting Price: $55.00
Auction ends: May 13, 2013 10:00:29 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester, United Kingdom
Comments:  A length of early 18th c bobbinlace, Binche or Valenciennes. Exactly which is unknown. It has a 5-hole ground, a light design, and many tallies, making this the early predecessor of today’s Point de Fee. The picoted border is a later addition, and the upper edge is so hidden by the engrelure that it’s hard to tell if it is intact. I suspect it was cut down both top and bottom from a larger piece. There are quite a few holes, so condition is short of good. But this is quite a rare lace.

Comments:  Part of a Valenciennes lappet with snowflake/partridge eye ground, ~1730. The pattern delineation, the technique, the thread are wonderful, the condition is not. Numerous holes, well, the photos say it all. But it comes from one of the greatest bobbinlace traditions.

http://tinyurl.com/ca9nnzx *Antique 18thc MECHLIN Bobbin Lace Long Lappet *
Size: 2.75″ x 58″
Starting Price: $65.00
Auction ends: May 13, 2013 10:10:20 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester, United Kingdom
Comments:  This lappet scarf is made from one length of Mechlin joined along the footedge. Not an uncommon arrangement, you see this in lappets and also cap backs occasionally. Here the join is well handled, and the termination nicely done. The lace looks around 1770, but I’m not sure if it was assembled this way at that time. The length of the piece is appropriate to a set of two lappets, but it lacks the gap for the cap back, which one would really expect at this time.  The edges are rather frayed, but the main part of the lace is in good condition.

Comments:  A Brussels bobbinlace with droschel ground, ~1770.  The design is fairly simple, there’s a possibility it is English Devon. Well done work, and just a few pulls and pinholes in the ground. Very good condition for its age.

161021812971   Sold for $77.60, 3 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/bvgfurt *Antique 18thc Brussels Bobbin Lace Trim / Edging.  *
Size: 41″ neckline, 7″ deep
Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: May 13, 2013 11:09:03 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. A Carrickmacross applique bertha, a fairly unusual form for this lace. Note the lines of rings in the centers of various flowers, copying similar motifs in Point de Gaze. Not much in the way of cutwork which is often found in Carrickmacross applique. It deviates from the usual Irish motif designs, and overall is quite effective. Very good condition, I think I see a few spots along the neckline, but not much else.

Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  A lappet scarf of Chantilly. The design of roundels, like a long string of large beads, is quite unusual. There’s a small flower in each of the roundels – the design is a little simple with heavy black thread, probably a sign of Belgian manufacturer. Condition looks very good from the photos.

Comments:  A small English Beds collar. It’s rather remarkable, when Beds does come up on Ebay it’s usually being sold from an English seller. This one has a inner flat piece, could be used as a dress front, with a gathered plaited border. A good, typical design, not fancy, and just a minor pull here and there. Very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller vintageblessings, Meridian, Idaho, United States
Comments:  A black embroidered tulle mantilla-style headcover. Note how the direction of the flat laid stitches changes direction to catch the light – something I think might be traced to Spain. It has the look of the black blondes, especially with the small tendrils terminating in circular holes – you see that in the blondes too. Looks in very good condition, just a minor pull here and there.

Auction ends: May 14, 2013 18:26:54 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller *tangleblu*, Valley Cottage, New York, United States
Comments:  I’m not 100% sure, but I think this is silk Irish Crochet. The emphasis on rings, rather plain picoted brides, and the slightly different design which is dictated by the slippery thread are good signs. Silk Irish crochet doesn’t come up too often, and this is a very nice example. Seller cites some minor discoloration, basically very good condition.

Comments:  A silk Maltese large doily with the silk center shaped into a Maltese cross. Typical designs, and a three-layer concentric construction to the lace. I do like the roundels with massed woven leaves in the middle layer. Seller cites some age darkening and minor frays along the joining seam at the right. Basically good condition.

Comments:  A narrow border of silk Blonde de Caen. A simple borderof leaves with ‘v’ shaped esprits in the net.  A few pulls in the delicate mesh, but basically very good condition. This kind of lace doesn’t often survive this well.

Auction ends: May 16, 2013 06:25:00 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller amberfarleigh, Richmond, N. Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A border of flat needlelace, and I think it’s an early English example. Note the picoted rings used on the brides and the lower edge, you see this in English needlelace.  The closeups are a little smeared, but I think it has the typical English open structure, which is a sign of a knotted stitch, not twisted. It is a very long piece, not completely photographed, but the design looks fairly intact from what I can see – not sure about foot edge. Overall good condition.

Comments:  A very long, narrow Chantilly border. A simple design of acanthus leaves, quite vertically arranged, meant to be ruffled. No esprits. Seller says it is used, and looks in good condition from the photos.  Value seems to have gone up from the 2 pounds 10 shillings appraisal.

Comments:  A V-shaped collar or dress insert of Honiton guipure. Snails/slugs period with a very crowded design all held in by a regular row of flowers along the edge. Only one photo, no closeups, no condition comments by seller. I call it overall good condition.

Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.  A type of Belgian needlelace that I sometimes call ‘point de gaze guipure’. That is, it has Point de Gaze technique, but lacks the looped ground, although it is sometimes used as a filling stitch. Normally when you see this lace it isn’t much in the way of design, but Pat’s collection has revealed at least 3 pieces which give one an idea of how good it can really be. It almost has an early Sedan look (see my lace of the month post at http://tinyurl.com/bewrwkj. I need to search through all the old books to see if I can track this down in the 19th c. This particular piece plays a lot with design and fillings, it has a colorful look. Basically good condition with a few holes, and a little repair work.

Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse handkerchief, raised petal roses in the Point de Gaze inserts.  I really wonder what ‘laundered stress test’ means…  The one complete photo is pretty out of focus, but the closeups are good. Seller cites a pinhole in the cloth, but that’s trivial. Otherwise very good condition.
