Size: placemats: 10″ x 16″, runer: 16″ x 41″
Starting Price: $175.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: June 30, 2013 19:17:26 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller things*most*delightful, Sacramento California, United States
Comments:  Table runner and 8 placemats of a 20th century interpretation of the 16th century ‘Punto Tirato Tela Sfilata’.  Threads are drawn from the cloth forming a square mesh background, the remaining cloth is left for the pattern. Each side of the mesh is whipped around for more security. This particular cloth is further ornamented with heavy embroidery and pulled thread embroidery. Hard to say where it was made, but Italy isn’t a bad guess. Looks in very good condition from the photos.

Size: 6″ x 56″
Starting Price: 0.99 GBP
Auction ends: July 1, 2013 09:57:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller wilfredlovesnelly, Glossop, United Kingdom
Comments:  I normally don’t review mixed tape pieces like this, basically because it’s so hard to tell where they were made, and the quality, frankly, isn’t always too good. But I do like this one, machine tape outlines with a little raised work at intersections, and nicely done needlelace fillings.  Also can’t see much of the design, but it has a good, light appearance.  What I can see looks in good condition, a few broken stitches in the lower right corner.

Size: 2.5″ x 5′ 6″
Starting Price: 25.00 GBP
Auction ends: July 1, 2013 09:57:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller amberfarleigh, Richmond, N. Yorkshire, United Kingcom
Comments:  A border of Point de Gaze. No raised work, and each repeat has one large decorative ‘mode’. Which is better than having none. A few small holes in the mesh, some discoloration, and seems  a bit wrinkled; few crisp straight lines or curves in the cordonnet. This might be a sign of a previous wash. Overall good condition

http://tinyurl.com/p9sv5mo Rare Volant de dentelle Lille Holandaise Beveren-Waas du XIXè 1m96x12
Size: 12 cm x 196 cm
Starting Price: 45.00 EUR
Auction ends: July 2, 2013 05:15:55 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller florencel14670, Palaiseau, France
Comments:  A Beveren point ground border, with typical straight edge and esprits in the ground. The dentate edges of the design, the gimp-bordered holes within the cloth stitch, and the honeycomb stitch fillings are characteristics of this lace.  The condition looks very good from the photos.  Note the tag from ‘La Cour Balave, Paris’ on one end, I don’t recognize this establishment. Google seems  to indicate that it was a large group of buildings erected on the site of a former church. There might be more information on the other side of the tag.

Size: 4 cm x 206 cm
Starting Price: $45.00
Auction ends: July 2, 2013 05:20:05 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller florencel14670, Palaiseau, France
Comments:  A narrow Alençon border, late 18th or early 19th c.  Looks like the ground is brides tortillée, where the needle-made mesh is further strengthened by twisting a thread around all sides, sometimes also including buttonhole stitches (but not the full brides bouclé*. Hard to tell exactly without getting this under the microscope.  The réseau fin and some picoted circles are used as fillings. Overall a  very simple design, and there is one zigzag join.  Looks in very good condition, no serious pulls or damage that I can see.

Auction ends: July 2, 2013 05:340:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller florencel14670, Palaiseau, France
Comments:  A Point de Gaze handkerchief. No raised work, and minimal decorative ‘mode’ fillings, just a few rings along the cloth border and in the center of the corner flowers. The net looks like a standard Point de Gaze mesh, nicely intact. Overall very good condition.  Note another Point de Gaze piece by this seller, Ebay #200936674327.

http://tinyurl.com/pwx7h4r Superbe large dentelle de Bruxelles point de gaze époque XIXème 300 cm x 20 cm
Size: 20 cm x 308 cm
Starting Price: 25.00 EUR
Auction ends: July 2, 2013 10:08:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller chiffonnette81, bientôt chez vous, France
Comments:  A wide, elaborately designed Point de Gaze flounce.  No raised work, but some nice ‘mode’ fillings especially on the lower edge.  Excellent design and technique.  Seller says most imperfections are in the first 150 cm where there are a number of small but noticeable holes in the mesh.  Occasional separations in the motifs also. So given the half very good, half not so good condition, I’ll average it out and rate the overall condition good.

Size: 3.6″ x 19″ each
Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: July 2, 2013 10:44:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Two segments of the same Alençon border. Same ground as the piece reviewed above. The design is a later 19th c piece with a more open stitch used in the rempli. And the leaves and buds along the border have a more naturalistic feeling than one might find in the late 18th early 18th c. Of course these are short cut lengths, and there is occasional wear in the réseau. Basically good condition.

Starting Price: 9.99 GBP
Auction ends: July 2, 2013 12:00:18 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller baraud, Newton Abbott, United Kingdom
Comments:  A wild looking Honiton guipure handkerchief, and I mean that in a good way. This is well out of the snails/slugs esthetic. Small, carefully done motifs with good raised work and fillings.  Note the tallies used between the leaflets in the corners, unusual. It does have that slightly pulled look (basically where the raised portions waver a lot) that is often associated with washing. Don’t see any obvious damage, overall good condition.

Auction ends: July 2, 2013 12:45:03 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A long rectangular piece of Irish Crochet. Actually it looks like pieces, an outer border of heavy IC, then an insertion of embroidered net, then a central panel of smaller motif Rose of Sharon mixed with some heavier work.  Not entirely sure what it was for. Some age yellowing, overall good condition.

Auction ends: Jul 02, 2013 21:11:05 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller carnraj, Hicksvile, New York, United States
Comments:  A fan of Brussels Duchesse with Mother of Pearl sticks and box. Three Point de Gaze inserts, I think the roses have raised petals, but a little hard to tell. Standard Duchesse motifs, although the design looks a little scattered. No condition notes, and it looks like there are some stains, so I’ll call it good from looking at the photos.

Comments:  A deep collar of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.  An impressive, naturalistic design. A few little needlelace accents like rings in flower centers, and note the esprits filling out the remaining blank spaces.  A few very small holes and breaks, all minor.  Very good condition overall.

Comments:  A Duchesse de Bruxelles bertha with 8 Point de Gaze inserts. No raised work in the needlelace, but note the heavy line of rings around flower centers. There are some unusual flower motifs in the bobbinlace, all quite nicely done, and more varied than most lace of this type.  Overall condition looks very good from the photos, especially the needlelace ground.

Auction ends: Jul 03, 2013 11:29:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester, United Kingdom
Comments:  I agree with the seller, this looks like a large square shawl cut approximately in half. Brussels Duchesse, combined needle and bobbinlace.  A naturalistic design that fills the space well. Note the needlelace fillings in the bobbinlace flowers, as well as complete needlelace motifs standing alone. One not too well done repair to the net and a few pinholes.  Basically good condition, just wish it hadn’t been cut down.

Offered by: Ebay seller chantaiziere, Centre, France
Comments:  This embroidered net isn’t all that big, and I can’t tell from the photos if it is cut from something or original. The embroidery is quite elaborate and well done. I also can’t tell if it is tambour, but suspect that it is, which might indicate a Belgian origin.  A few small holes in the net, basically good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller catchmeifyoucan61, Postterswille, New Jersey, United States
Comments:  There are 2 collars in this lot, and I’m concentrating on the Point de Gaze longer one. This is a collar with long front points, no raised work, but it really doesn’t need any.  Very dense, naturalistic design. There are a few small holes in the mesh, and I hope the real color isn’t orange-yellow.  Overall good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller 2005_felix_1, vor den Bergen, Deutschland
Comments:  One of the nice things about collecting German Klöppelstands is their variety, and the opportunity for woodworkers to show off their skills. This one is apparently fairly recent, made to order in a woodturner’s shop. Beautifully worked and finished, looks in very good condition.

Comments:  A large collar or more probably frontpiece of Maltese. Typical outer edge of alternating flowers and Maltese crosses.  Some nice guipure work against a woven leaf ground in the center and next to the neckline. Seller cites some breaks and a small repair at the back. Overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/kggbdem Antique/vintage Buckinghamshire lace shawl/stole wedding Pat Earnshaw coll.
Size: 25″ x 112″
Starting Price: $24.95
Auction ends: Jul 05, 2013 11:01:04 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw. A rectangular point ground shawl. I’m not entirely sure of a Bucks attribution, although it’s possible. The thing that strikes me are the diamonds of woven tallies in the ground, and also the fillings aren’t really typical of Bucks. The filling of the 6 point star kat stitch is more typical of Spain.  The seller has an excellent description of this piece; I’ll call it overall good condition.  Very interesting.
The seller says that this is the last piece of Pat Earnshaw’s lace that she has.
