http://tinyurl.com/ns7nzp4 Antique Victorian Large Mother of Pearl Brussels Point De Gaze Fan.
Size: 13.75″ long
Starting Price: 180.00 GBP
Auction ends: May 26, 2013 11:59:22 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller davidcharles1946, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A large fan of Carrickmacross applique mounted on Mother of Pearl/abalone sticks. An impressive design, very well worked with some nicely done guipure accents.  Typical looped picots around the edges. Figural Carrickmacross comes along now and then, but the symmetric urns in this piece are exceptionally well done.  One repaired stick. The lace itself looks in very good condition, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

Size: 21 cm x 314 cm
Starting Price: 135.00 GBP
Auction ends: May 26, 2013 12:05:45 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Milanese-type bobbin tape lace, probably Italian. I’m guessing 1st half of the 18th century, from the style of the brides. Could be a bit later. The flowerhead terminations are starting to develop into what eventually will become Cantu lace.  Seller cites a few broken brides and some storage marks.  Overall very good condition.

Comments:  Another Milanese bobbinlace, quite similar to that described above. It’s in 3 pieces with a few storage marks according to the seller. Overall good condition.

Comments:  Yet a third Milanese guipure bobbinlace border, most similar to the first one from this seller described above.  This one looks a little more delicate, but still the same doubled back tape with 5 petal flowerheads and picoted brides.  Looks in very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/qd3vuts Antique/vintage 18th century embroidered and lace cuffs from Vienna
Size: 12.75″ x 7.25″
Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: May 27, 2013 10:50:22 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. According to the attached note: “Pair of cuffs. A narrow band of linen, embroidered in satin stitch on both sides in white flors silk, with a pattern of conventional tulip and rose blossoms. Insertions and edging of coarse thread pillow-made lace with wavy tape-like pattern. size 12-1/4 in x 17 1/4. Austrian (South Slavonian) 18th century. Compare South Kensington Museum 181 to 186a 1887.  (P E ?) Collection Bought at Vienna 1886 6 guilden each”.
I don’t know whose handwriting this is – probably Pat’s although it is curious she would refer to the ‘South Kensington Museum’ rather than the VA. So it could be much earlier. This provenance is wonderful, and the pieces are in very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/pdywnnb ANTIQUE BRUSSELS LACE STOLE, SCARF, VEIL. EXCELLENT CONDITION.

Starting Price: 45.00 GBP
Auction ends: May 27, 2013 10:53:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller georginanntiques, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  A rectangular scarf of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine tulle.  A fairly simple design of a simple rose repeat, and note the extensive esprits in the ground.  The condition appears very good, in fact exceptionally good. This is very unusual.

http://tinyurl.com/oux7eab BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE LACE FAN + BOX. CORONET, CROWN. RUSSIAN MAKER, ALEXANDRE.
Size: 20.5″ wide, 10.5″ long, lace 7″ deep
Starting Price: 220.00 GBP
Auction ends: May 27, 2013 11:05:56 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller georginanntiques, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Point de Gaze fan with tassel, box, and Mother of Pearl sticks with gold inlay. And an attached coronet on the guardstick. The lace has a naturalistic design, no raised work (which is not a problem) and some good decorative ‘mode’ fillings. Everything points to a Russian maker. One small repair to the lace and a few pinholes. Also some darkening due to gluing the lace on the sticks.  Some of the upper bone sticks replaced.  Overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/ot23nwf Small antique/vintage Honiton lace collar
Size: 15″ neckline
Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: May 27, 2013 11:16:45 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A collar or dress front of Honiton guipure. Snails/slugs esthetic. It actually has some machine made tape just inside the neckline and just inside the outer border of flowers. You see this occasionally and it obviously speeds up the work.  The handmade motifs look a little rushed. But the overall condition of this piece looks very good. A nice combination example of Honiton and machine tape.

Size: not given.
Starting Price: $55.00
Auction ends: May 28, 2013 07:29:27 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A Point de Gaze lappet scarf with bulbous ends  of a dense floral design.. No raised work, and no special ‘mode’ fillings. It all depends on the contrast between the clothwork and Point de gaze ground inserts.  Nicely done, and aside from some staining particularly on one end, in very good condition.  Part of a museum de-accession.

Comments:  A fallcap of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.  Nice design of a central flower spray and a string of cartouches around the edges. I like the grid pattern in the lappet ends.

The outer edge alternates crosses and flowers.  Seller cites minor loose threads, overall very good condition.
