Offered by: Ebay seller twist-in-time, Pottstown, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments:  A length of Bucks that seems to have been made up from two other borders, but the intended matching isn’t always working out.   It’s a bit hard to see what’s going on here. Two of the borders seem joined lengthwise, and there are several cutouts as if this were originally part of a larger gown, as the seller notes. I’m guessing the two parts are meant to match with a racroc join (as shown in the seller’s 6th photo), but this patterns seems to have gone awry in other parts of the piece.  The overall piece is short of good condition, with lots of cuts and some stains. But the lace appears to be a good floral bucks pattern, not the most elaborate, but nicely done.

Comments:  A Honiton guipure handkerchief.  Good example in the snails/slugs style, nicely done. One small hole in the center cloth, and the lace looks in good condition.

Comments:  Branscombe lace is a mixed tape lace, and is certainly possible for this handkerchief. Looking at Susan Cox’s book Branscombe Point Lace, note the outer purled edge (a few bunched buttonhole stitches) which is characteristic of this lace.  What I don’t see is what she calls ‘ribbed or flat cutwork’, the little spider-like fillings, also no brides with looped picots.  But all such laces had variations.  This one has a nice bold look, well done, and aside from a little worn area in the center cloth, very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/moazl6r Antique/vintage Edwardian Carrickmacross guipure dress front and cuffs.
Size: not given
Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: June 7, 2013 11:11:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  An elaborate Carrickmacross guipure collar and I presume matching cuffs. Unusual feature of looped picots on the brides and motif edges, not just the outside edge. This gives the collar a rather frilly look, which is further enhanced by needlelace fillings. Someone really went the extra mile on this set.  I’ll rate the collar condition good; there are a few weaknesses in the muslin, but not too serious.  Can’t tell about the cuffs.

Starting Price: $1,299.99 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: 1 day from 6/6/2013, 6:19 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, United States
Comments:  An elaborate rectangular shawl of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine tulle. Needlelace fillings in the centers of flowers. The slightly rounded corners are a little unusual.  The design fills the space well, with lots of esprits in the vacant ground. The design center back is a little asymmetric and doesn’t quite match the rest of the piece, but that’s minor.  The motifs are also slightly loosely woven, and a larger size, but appropriate to the piece.   Various trivial holes, repairs, some spots, but with a piece like this that’s not very important. Generally very good condition.

Auction ends: Jun 08, 2013 10:57:10 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller reddolly123, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Comments:  An Irish Crochet fallcap. This looks like an earlier piece with the very small, precise motifs, sometimes called ‘lifted guipure’.  No closeups so I can’t access the exact structure of the stitches, especially the picots. Looks in very good condition from the photos.

Comments:  A Cantú doily, larger than it appears in the photo.  Normally you have to go for very large pieces to get good figural work, so this is a nice find. Well worked, very good condition.

Auction ends: 2 days from 6/6/2013, 6:42 PM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, United States
Comments:  A roughly oval veil of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. This piece does a lot with just a fairly simple design.  The dense flower and leaf pattern is worked in a narrow border all around the veil, and small esprits decorate the entire ground.  The work on the bobbinlace is quite fine, and stands well by itself without needlelace fillings. One repair, some minor discoloration and tiny holes. For a piece this large I’ll call it very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A triangular Chantilly shawl with very large motifs of flowers and leaves. Not easy to keep control of the texture of the half stitch over such wide areas. Some interesting fillings using picoted brides in flower centers.  From what I can see the condition looks very good. I don’t see any problems in the photos – unusual for a piece like this.

Overall good condition.

Comments:  A very complete windmill bobbin winder from the Auvergne region. The arm for the windmill blades can be slide along the base, and there is another peg to use a single sool.  Looks in good condition, just normal patina from age. The top of one of the posts that holds the bobbins seems to be missing.

Comments:  An interesting series of four Chantilly bonnet veils.  All are listed separately, and appear to be from the same museum de-acquisition. They illustrate rectangular to hemispherical examples.  All of them appear to be in very good condition, seller notes just a few pinholes in the first one.  I like the quality on all, especially the second and fourth one which play with some interesting shading effects.  The third one is the most complex, with several rows of ornamentation around the circumference.  Note the different esprits in the main ground in each.

Comments:  A lappet scarf of Chantilly.  I assume it is joined at the top, the photos don’t go that far.  There some interesting openwork just above the ends that resembles the 4th bonnet veil described in review just above this one.  A few pinholes, overall good condition.

Comments:  Two similar black embroidered net veils. Although they are a bit long for a bonnet veil, so ‘apron’ might be appropriate.  Both show designs similar to the Blonde de Caen bobbinlaces.  The first one is quite bold with solid black designs, the second includes a greater variety of openwork stitches.  Both look needlerun, not tambour. Both appear in very good condition.

Comments:  In the over 2 years that I’ve been doing these reviews I don’t ever remember seeing examples of clearly identifiable Orvieto lace.  This is a variation of Irish Crochet, made distinctly Italian by the innovative motifs.  The hexagonal center motifs surrounded by an irregular mesh are also distinguishing characteristics.  Both these small doilies look in very good condition.
