http://tinyurl.com/kxwuxp5 ANTIQUE LACE FABULOUS HANDMADE POINT DE GAZE HANDKERCHIEF MINT UNUSED
Size: 14″ square
Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Jul 13, 2013 15:46:36 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  A Point de Gaze handkerchief, good example of a high end market piece.  No raised work, which is fine, and decorative ‘mode’ fillings extensively used close to the cloth center. Note the picots around the edge, just single small loops accenting the points in the design. Good naturalistic pattern giving a dense but well organized flow – it almost looks like it swirls around the center cloth.  Very good condition, looks unused – just creases from folding.

Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Duchesse de Bruxelles bertha. No raised petal work on the Point de Gaze inserts, and they have an interesting single flower design. There are a few rings used as needlelace fillings in some flowers, and good raised work on the Duchesse motifs surrounding the Point de Gaze  The bobbinlace is fairly standard for this type of lace. Condition is very good, seller cites one small storage mark, and that the piece was found in basically unused condition.

Comments:  A border of Brussels application on machine net – mostly bobbin motifs, but  there is one flower per repeat done in needlelace. Good small motifs, and note the spots carefully used as esprits in the ground. Seller says it looks unused, and I don’t see any problems from the photos. A few minor storage marks, basically very good condition.

Starting Price: 82.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 14, 2013 10:55:26 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Duchesse handkerchief, entirely of bobbinlace.  Good design with well done raised work especially on the corner flowers. Seller has washed the piece, although does not say why, since it is also stated that it appears unused. From the photos I’d call this very good condition.

Starting Price: 520.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 14, 2013 12:05:12 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Duchesse de Bruxelles border; an exceptionally wide and long survivor. Also an example of a high end market piece – note the elaborate raised work in the bobbinlace. The Point de Gaze inserts have no raised work, but don’t need any. Seller cites a few very minor breaks and holes, but overall I’ll rate it very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/l8l6xxo Stunning Antique Handmade Victorian Point de Gaze Lace Bertha Collar ~ Wearble!
Size: 6″ x 42″
Starting Price: $9.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Jul 14, 2013 15:44:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller chantillydreams, Mount Sinai, New York, United States
Comments:  A Duchesse de Bruxelles bertha, although the bobbinlace is a bit on the plainer Bruges side. Point de Gaze inserts have raised petal roses. Seller cites a good discussion of the two major types of this lace, although I will note that from visits and literature, Point de Gaze was made in the Bruges area. So it is difficult to exactly attribute these pieces to a particular location. I can spot a few broken brides and minor pinholes in the needlelace mesh – overall good condition.

Auction ends: Jul 14, 2013 18:53:12 PDT

Comments:  A Point de Gaze fan with probably bone sticks, and a carved monogram on the guardstick. No raised work in the lace, and it has some good decorative ‘mode’ fillings and ring chains used in flower centers. This is a very dense, naturalistic design. A few brown spots in the lace, a few pinholes, but basically very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/mgjwamn ANTIGUA MATELETA DE 1880 DE BOLILLOS HECHA A MANO . HILO NEGRO
Size: 94 cm x 192 cm (I think).
Starting Price: 78.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 10:56:00 H.Esp
Offered by: Ebay seller malin0693, Comunidad Valenciana, España
Comments:  This looks like a Le Puy guipure piece with the very elaborate grounds, but Spain is not out of the running here. It’s hard to tell the exact shape of the piece, I think it might be a roughly triangular shawl, but with a more semicircular shape. Excellent work and design done in heavy black silk thread – I especially like the plaiting on the outer edges. Just wish there was a photo with it all spread out to see the exact design. Seller cites minor breaks, basically very good condition from what I can see.

Size: 93.5 cm x 42 cm
Starting Price: 25.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 03:28:08 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller feni1389, Castellón de la Plana, Comunidad Valenciana, Spain
Comments:  I’d call this a semicircular hat veil if it were anywhere but Spain, here it’s probably a small mantilla headcover. It is quite a striking guipure pattern reminding me both of Maltese in construction, but Le Puy in pattern. As with the shawl above, there’s a good possibility it is Spanish.  I see a few broken brides here and there, but overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/mpn9sqb ANTIQUE LACE-C. 19THC IRISH CARRICKMACROSS LACE COLLAR
Size: 9″ x 40″
Starting Price: $45.00
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 08:46:19 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  Seems to be a bertha collar, although it’s a bit hard to see from the photos. I don’t think this is Carrickmacross, there aren’t any typical Irish elements, and the needlerun fillings are a bit simple. Photos not close enough to see how the motifs are attached to the tulle; overcast or tambour.  Possibly a Belgian piece. Very good design, and it also looks in very good condition, almost unused.

http://tinyurl.com/mm4yw6p Dentelle Irlande au Crochet 5,20m x 15cm Long lenght 19thc Irish Lace 205″X 5.9″
Size: 5.9″ x 205″
Starting Price: 75.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 11:03:08 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  A long length of fine Irish Crochet in the earlier horseshoe pattern. Note the little raised rings in each repeat. Since the seller is in France I wonder if this is an example of French ‘Irish crochet’, not certain. What I can see looks in very good condition.

Size: 33 cm x 340 cm
Starting Price: 20.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 13:05:06 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ladyline55, Troyes, France
Comments:  A long, wide flounce of bobbinlace application on machine net. A few needlelace ring chains and fillings in flower centers, but basically the design relies on well-defined bobbinlace motifs. It’s an effective, yet simple design, probably a later 19th c piece. There are a few small holes in the tulle, overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/ofa5o9p ANTIQUE LACE LOVELY 33″ CIRCULAR CENTERPIECE WITH WIDE POINT DE GAZE EDGING
Size: 333″ diameter
Starting Price: $250.00
Auction ends: Jul 15, 2013 18:41:48 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments:  It’s rare to see Point de Gaze used in table linens, but not unknown. This one has an interesting design of flower in vases, lots of raised petal roses. Also some good ‘mode’ decorative fillings. It is quite a romantic design, perhaps done for a bridal trousseau. There are a number of tiny holes in the mesh, and a few frayed spots in the lace clothwork. Overall good condition.
