Size: 17″ neckline, 6.5″ deep
Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 10, 2013 09:21:35 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Carrickmacross applique collar with deep points. Basically a shamrock design with good needlerun fillings in open swirls around the outer edge. It has a nice style. A few pinholes in the net and the outer edge, especially along the neckline closing is a little frayed.  Almost looks more from the making than from actual wear. Overall good condition.

Starting Price: 9.95 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 10, 2013 09:37:54 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A border of Belgian bobbinlace with droschel ground, mid 18th c. It has been shaped at one end by cutting down, and I think another narrower piece, not matching, added. Perhaps to fit as a sleeve ruffle? The work itself is well done although a little loosely woven giving the motifs almost a transparent look. Given the modification and a number of small holes in the mesh, condition is short of good for this rather interesting piece.

Auction ends: Jun 10, 2013 11:28:03 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller isohex, Tyne-Wear, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Mechlin border, early 19th century style with a straight lower edge, thin foliate border and esprits in the ground.  You see this same kind of pattern in Lille and Valenciennes examples.  Seller has done an excellent job of photographing the entire piece. A few well-done repairs at the left end, and the occasional pull throughout. Overall good condition, and a nice example.

Starting Price: 14.95 GBP
Auction ends: Jun 11, 2013 10:46:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Brussels Duchesse collar with long front points which join together down the front of the bodice..  Large irregularly shaped Point de Gaze inserts with naturalistic raised petal roses are used in the inserts and along the outer edge at the back. Note the cup shape of the raised petals, sign of a better manufacturer.  They closely match the centers of adjoining bobbinlace flowers. Needlelace is also used in well done ‘mode’ fillings along the neckline.  The bobbinlace motifs are also of high quality, with interesting raised work.  Minor spotting but I don’t see any obvious holes. Overall condition looks very good.

Offered by: Ebay seller antiquesplaza, Helsinki, Finland
Comments:  A border of Brussels bobbinlace with droschel ground, seems to have been shaped into a long collar.  Dates around 1760. Note the well-done raised work along the motif edges. The design is a bit plain, but it has some interesting fillings including a quatrefoil variation, like is often seen in contemporary Mechlin.   There are a number of small holes in the mesh and a few pulls, basically good condition for its age.

Auction ends: Jun 11, 2013 09:59:04 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Flemish bobbinlace border with a 6-point plaited ground. It has a rather strong Brabant look, a catch-all term for products made outside of major cities such as Brussels and Ghent. The motifs are large loosely worked with no raised work and simple fillings.  Probably mid 18th c. It does have a number of small holes in the ground, but overall is in good condition for its age.  nice example of this style in a very collectible length.

Offered by: Ebay seller lacemerchant, Moorpark, Chicago, Illinois, United States
Comments:  A small collar of Brussels bobbinlace appliqued on machine net.  Smaller shaped pieces of this lace are a bit unusual. The motifs are finely done, with only some simple needlelace fillings in flower centers.  A little frayed especially along the neck edge as if the tulle wasn’t trimmed properly. But overall good condition.

Auction ends: Jun 12, 2013 10:51:46 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  This is a puzzling piece. Most of the net looks like machine tulle, while the lace along the lower border looks like a point ground bobbinlace. Maybe something like they did in Bayeau with cotton thread.  The edges almost look like they are appliqued on. Photos aren’t really close enough to get a good look at the technique.  Condition is good, just one area with a few small holes lower right corner.

Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jun 12, 2013 10:54:55 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  Joined lappets of what looks like Italian coraline, late 17th c.  I’m going to assume this is needlelace, because the photos aren’t close enough to show the detailed stitch structure. If so, you can see where early examples of Irish Crochet gets its inspiration. Or, it could be a later copy.  No photos of the mid-join area, so it’s hard to say if this is two separate or one complete piece. I think we need more detail here.  Overall it looks in very good condition.

Auction ends: Jun 12, 2013 11:09:12 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A rectangular shawl of elaborate Duchesse de Bruxelles. Note the large areas of Point de Gaze with fairly naturalistic raised petal roses, and the ‘mode’ decorative fillings used in lines down the sides of the piece.  The bobbinlace seems a bit crowded in the design, and only relies on about 3 different flat motifs, although it gets a bit more elaborate with raised work at the ends.  A few brown spots, and some breaks in the Point de Gaze mesh – overall good condition.

Auction ends: Jun 12, 2013 11:09:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A small triangular Point de Gaze shawl, a little more like a collar than a shawl.  The needlelace is quite finely done, not raised work, but that’s not a problem. It has a few ‘mode’ decorative fillings, but mostly relies on beautifully controlled clothwork in the motifs for effect. Note the single spiked picots along the edge, sign of an unfortunately unknown manufacturer. There are quite a few small holes in the Point de Gaze mesh, very difficult to repair, but they don’t detract much from the piece. Also a little discolored in places. Overall good condition.

Size: 4″ x 33″
Starting Price: $24.99
Auction ends: Jun 12, 2013 11:09:18 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  I think this is probably a Northern Italian lace, but it is too much of a pieced lace to really conform to the more tape-like Milano standards. And the design seems a little more romantic later 19th c.  It is very interesting with good decorative clothwork, and fillings of a variety of woven leaves and little mat-like stitches that I can’t quite place.  The ‘wheat ear’ leaf pattern is also a later development. Note the plaited ground combined with the large open areas, a very interesting effect.  Condi6tion is a little rough with holes and damage to the ground, on the lower end of good. Wish there were more of this.

Starting Price: 280.00 EUR
Auction ends: 12 jun 2013 12:42:20 H.Esp
Offered by: Ebay seller scambiovendocompro12, taranto, TA, Italia
Comments:  This is a larger piece than it looks.  It has the appearance of a white Le Puy guipure, especially with the 6 pointed star ground. But a Spanish origin is also possible.  The seller speculates it could be for religious vestments, although there’s no obvious religious iconography. It is joined in a circle.  There’s only one photo, but the condition looks very good.
6/9/2013, 4:20 PM MST.  I just heard from former Retournac lace museum curator Bruno Ythier about this piece. He says it comes from a Retournac workshop called “Experton Frère et Soeur”, and hopefully he can find the actual pattern number.

Offered by: Ebay seller roteroserosemarie, Daheim, Deutschland
Comments:  A German Klöppelstand, Klöppelsack and 34 hooded bobbins.  Good folk art painting and appropriate use patina. The pillow is pretty worn.  I have several of these and they are a lot stronger than you might think.  This one is rather simple but elegant, it lacks the drawer below the pillow basket that you sometimes find. Condition looks good.

Auction ends: Jun 13, 2013 05:57:10 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller coffey*2011, Wiscasset, Main, United States
Comments:  A Belgian rectangular pillow with a ratcheted roller at the upper end, and a drawer in the back of the base. Comes with a large number of Belgian bobbins, patterns, and accessories. And it has a provenance with the name of the original owner in Turnhout. This is consistent with the Kempenland district designation of a similar pillow shown in the book “Klöppel – Kissen – Ständer”. The two-part Belgian rectangular cushions are seen fairly regularly on Ebay, but the roller version is more unusual. This one looks like the roller has seen some use, and isn’t quite as cylindrical as a new one would be, but overall it appears to be in very good condition.

Comments:  A handkerchief of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. Nice overall design, small, well-made motifs.  Looks like it could use a little blocking, and there are some reattachments needed around the center cloth. Overall good condition.

Comments:  Another shorter piece of this lace is listed as Ebay #111088807020.  This is a long border of Brussels Application on machine net, with needle-made motifs. Much less common than the bobbin-made variety. I think it’s a later 19th c piece; the design doesn’t quite have the really romantic feel of mid 19th c, and the motifs are fairly simple with a bit of an art noveau feel. No attempt at really decorative fillings.  Condition looks very good. I don’t see any problems from the photos, and for a lace like this it is quite unusual to find something this nicely intact.

Comments:  I always like to review the white silk point ground laces when they come up on Ebay since they don’t very often appear and are always quite interesting. This one is fairly simple and with the extensive half-stitch and honeycomb filling might be a Chantilly variation. It is quite delicate and looks in very good condition. Wish there were more.

Comments:  A collar of Irish Crochet in very good condition. The design is a bit haphazard, with well worked motifs and a little raised work in flower centers. I do like the fillings in the motifs.  Picots in the square mesh look like crocheted loops.

Comments:  This seller is listing a number of printed bobbinlace patterns that I don’t recognize from my library.  Maybe someone else does.  See also Ebay #321139761315, #360672461495, #321139758936, #321139758936, #321139757345, #360672456552, and #360672454920.  They have a Bruges look.  Seller cites a few tears in the paper, but overall look in good condition, and very usable.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Two fragments of Mechlin, around 1740. They have the same pattern with the cinq trou ground, but almost look like they were worked by a different hand – left out the gimp on one of them which is very strange!  Note the very straight edge, also a little unusual. This kind of lace doesn’t come up for sale very often.  Both look in very good condition.
