http://tinyurl.com/at5mn7v Pretty 1860’s Lace lappet headdress
Size: 38″ long
Starting Price: $34.99
Auction ends: May 17, 2013 15:59:25 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller fiddybee, Troy, New York, United States
Comments:  The photos really aren’t close enough to tell, but this piece has a good feel, so I’ll say it’s a Chantilly lappet scarf. It has a naturalistic design of small flowers and large leaves, some of which overlap onto the outer edge at the ends.  Looks in very good condition from what I can see, although I can’t see too much.

Offered by: Ebay seller reddolly123, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Honiton shawl collar with long front ends, large motifs. Basically slug/snails style, quite nicely done, especially the roses.  Lots of square tally fillings, and picoted rectangular brides. An occasional loose bride or tally fastening, but overall it looks in very good condition. Quite a nice example of the style.

Starting Price: 10.00 EUR
Auction ends: May 18, 2013 12:34:58 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ladyline55, Troyes, France
Comments:  Brussels bobbinlace application on machine tulle does a lot with border, veils of all sizes, handkerchiefs, but doesn’t too often get into smaller shaped pieces. This is a good looking, fairly deep collar with lappet ends – not really a mantilla shape, but not too far off. A well done finely worked piece with small naturalistic motifs, and lots of esprits all over the ground. Seller cites a few small holes and pinholes. Looks to me like there might be a repair to the net in the main part of the collar, and the edges of the piece are rather frayed. Basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/ajlw8pc ANTIQUE LACE TRIANGULAR SHAWL MADE OF EARLY BRABANT LACE
Size: 29″ x 68″
Starting Price: $135.00
Auction ends: May 18, 2013 17:13:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  This is a piece made from a wide mid 18th c Brabant lace, probably wide borders. Could certainly have been an alb flounce as the seller suggests. You can see a join about a third of the way up from the triangular point – not sure if it’s the same lace, but they do look similar. It has a fond chant ground, and fillings of plaited zigzag brides and bars. Looks like there is another join at the left end. The design is rather flat and plain, but that’s the nature of Brabant. The lace looks in very good condition (disregarding the assembled nature of the piece).

Auction ends: May 18, 2013 17:34:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  This is a kind of torchon tapelace thing. It does have a Northern Italian look, but frankly I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. Linen thread with light storage/age staining. Basically good condition.

Comments:  An adjustable height wooden klöppelstand with excellent woodworking.  So often these things are screwed together, but this one looks beautifully made. Seller stays it is about 25 years old and in very good condition. Almost looks unused.

Comments:  A handkerchief of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine tulle, quite nicely done and in very good condition. The dense border makes the inner part look almost like Point de Gaze.  Note also the careful attention to the border along the center cloth.

http://tinyurl.com/bgy6s5s 220″(18’4″) of Fabulous Vintage French Chantilly Net Lace Trim/Flounce
Size: 12″ x 220″
Starting Price: 45.00 GBP
Auction ends: May 19, 2013 12:16:31 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jsbxxx, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Comments:  A flounce of Spanish ret-fi black blonde lace.  It’s rare to see this as a standalone piece, it is normally used in mantillas (see the last item in http://tinyurl.com/b5775gc). It has a very distinctive design. Note the 5-pointed star fillings, which is very indicative of the Spanish blondes. This lace unfortunately sometimes is subject to rust stains due to improper storage – something about the dye reacting with the silk.  Seller cites some brown marks, but I don’t see any in the photos. I do see some weak spots, what looks like racroc splits (these were made in strips), and a few holes in the net. Basically good condition.

Auction ends: May 19, 2013 12:18:53 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller poppy1109, Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments:  A narrow collar of Brussels Duchesse. Raised rose petals in the Point de Gaze inserts. The bobbinlace is fairly conventional for Duchesse, and the piece is in good condition. It does look a little shrunken as if it has been washed.

Comments:  A narrow border of Bruges Bloemwerk.  The simple trumpet flowers, trefoil leaves and round flowers are nicely combined with irregular picoted brides.  Some fraying along the footedge, basically good condition.

Auction ends: May 19, 2013 17:37:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller nutting13, Livonia, New York, United States
Comments:  I don’t know where this was made, it doesn’t have the palm leaf edge you see in ñanduti, but some of the fillings look more like what they do. The silk center is also quite unusual.  The technique is finely done, and the overall condition is very good.

Size: collar, 17″ x 13″. Cuffs 4.5″ x 11″
Starting Price: $39.95
Auction ends: May 19, 2013 17:37:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sweable8wgp, Marion, Iowa, United States
Comments:  Yes, I helped out on the ID for this one. Irish crochet dress front with matching cuffs. I’m suddenly struck by just how much the little flowers on either side of the center flower look like motifs from Dillmont’s la Guipure d’Irlande book. The heavy knots in the ground look somewhat like Clones knots, but if you look really close they seem to be folded over loops of double crochet or something.  It’s a beautifully done set, and I’m thinking a French origin isn’t out of the question. Condition appears very good.

Starting Price: 1.99 GBP
Auction ends: May 19, 2013 17:37:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sandyfhbeating, TONBRIDGE, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments:  A wide Chantilly flounce with a bold design. Wish there were more closeups.  No ombre shading, and the repeat is fairly short (probably Belgian origin). The looks of the piece is nicely balanced top to bottom. Long Chantilly is fairly common, but pieces this wide are a little unusual. Looks in good condition, seller shows one ‘rip’, and says there are a few catches in the net.

Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  A matching Maltese collar and cuff set.  Kind of a stark design, just massed woven leaves (beautifully done)  alternating with Maltese crosses and flowers. Lots of plaiting on the outer edges and neckline. Looks in very good condition, although maybe a little discolored in places. Seller says it could use a wash.

Comments:  A Point de Gaze handkerchief in very good condition. Just a little wrinkled in the cloth, a few pinholes, minor stains. Raised petals on the roses. It’s not a complex piece, but is put together quite nicely.  Minimal decorative ‘mode’ fillings, basically rows of knots.

Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse fan with Mother of Pearl/Abalone sticks. With box dated 7 JUIN 1902, so this is a rare dated example assuming the box is original to the fan. Raised petal roses in the Point de Gaze central insert. The Duchesse is nicely done with a little raised work also. Looks in good condition, although some holes in the Pt d G ground.

Comments:  A fan of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine tulle. Comes with a worn Duvelleroy box. Mother of Pearl/Abalone sticks.  Both lace and sticks are in very good condition.

Auction ends: May 20, 2013 14:12:30 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller amberfarleigh, Richmond, N. Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A border of Belgian bobbinlace with droschel ground, around 1770. Note the threads of the ground carried along the back of the motifs – the motifs were made first and the ground added later in narrow strips.  Unusual to have something this good survive so well for so long – very good condition. Just a few pulls here and there.

Size: 29″ x 16″
Starting Price: 24.95 GBP
Auction ends: May 21, 2013 10:30:33 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  I’ve been talking with the seller about this piece. Kenmare might be a little bit of a stretch, but I was struck with some resemblance to the 1911 tabernacle veil shown below in the National Museum in Ireland. Something about the band in that piece look a little familiar, and there is raised work in both.  However the piece up for sale does have lots of excellent bobbinlace, and lacks the needlelace ground of the Kenmare veil. My second guess would be Italy. Then again there seem to be some fleur-de-lis in the upper border, so maybe France?  The piece is a little aged in color, but basically in very good condition. Just wish there was more of it.
