Ebay Alerts! Fourteen items – July 28, 2013

http://tinyurl.com/lbmo96b VINTAGE TENERIFFE LACE MAKING TOOLS – BRIGGS PATENT –
Size: marked piece 95mm
Starting Price: 3.00 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 29, 2013 04:06:32 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lordlucan333, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  The lozenge shaped Briggs No 2 teneriffe template is fairly rare and this is a nice example. The other three appear to be home made, since Briggs only sold three forms. No 1 is a small wheel 2.25″ in diameter, and No 3 is very rare, a large aluminum wheel 4.25″ in diameter. Nos 1 and 2 were produced in brass and imitation tortoiseshell. These are designed to be pinned to a hard pillow, the pins stick up a bit and the lace web is strung around the pins. Very occasionally you come across an original Briggs pillow.  These items appear in very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  A wide border of bobbinlace applique on machine net. There are a few simple needlelace fillings, and no esprits in the ground. The simple meandering design fills the space – a good middle market product. There are a few small repairs; the piece has been well cared for.  Overall good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  A border of tambour embroidery on machine net which often points toward a Belgian origin. Good dense work with a romantic design. Note the careful work on the sprigs used as esprits. Generally good condition, seller cites a few small holes in the tulle.

http://tinyurl.com/l9a4yl6 19thc Limerick Lace Long Large Veil / Shawl 108″x 40″ Dentelle Etole 2,75m x 1m
Size: 40″ x 108″
Starting Price: $85.00
Auction ends: Jul 29, 2013 19:15:19 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments:  A rectangular shawl of needlerun embroidered machine net. This technique was used in Limerick, but the motifs don’t have the Irish character you normally see, so a continental origin is also possible. Perhaps Lierre. The work is well done with an even, consistent design. Some pinholes in the tulle, and seller cites some small repairs. Overall good condition.

Size: 13 cm high
Starting Price: 40.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 30, 2013 10:10:45 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller gilliamfa, Oupeye, Belgium
Comments:  This Delft figure doesn’t come up too often. It is nicely made, especially with the openwork on the chair. That often gets broken. It isn’t a traditional tin glaze, but a full porcelain finish. This one looks in very good condition, I don’t see any defects from the photos.

Starting Price: 40.00 EUR
Auction ends: Jul 30, 2013 10:47:02 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mixedupcolors, Shreveport, Louisiana, United States
Comments:  The top lace here looks like an excellent machine copy of a mid 19th c Mechlin pattern. The bottom one is a 3rd quarter 18th c Mechlin piece with quite a free flowing design. Good fillings, excellent technique. Wish there was a width measurement., and although it’s not clear, I think it’s the shorter piece. Seller cites some age staining and a few pinholes, overall good condition.

Auction ends: Jul 30, 2013 14:42:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments:  A Point de Gaze handkerchief, no raised work. Good design of flowers and leaves with some heavy rings used as decorative ‘mode’ fillings. Unfortunately there’s not full photo of the piece, but from what I can see it looks in basically very good condition. Seller cites a few small openings, and I do see a few pinholes in the mesh.

Auction ends: Jul 30, 2013 17:58:46 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller meadowpaint, Carlesbad, California, United States
Comments:  A square meshed later 19th c Valenciennes border. It has a light design, meant to border linens and undergarments. A few pinholes, and it seems to have a wrinkled appearance that might indicate a past washing.  Overall good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/mfaq4vs Antique Brussels Point de Gaze Duchesse Bobbin Lace Bird Butterfly Floral Fan
Size: lace: 5″ deep, 26″ long, frame: 12″ wide, 26″ long
Starting Price: $200.00
Auction ends: Jul 30, 2013 19:08:56 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller 1860-1960, Moorpark, California, United States
Comments:  A Honiton fan of sophisticated design, later 19th c. Note the excellent figural work, and extensive woven tally fillings.  An impressive looking piece.  The mounting has helped in preservation, although I do see a few frayed places in in the fillings, especially on the left side. There’s also an opening on the lower left edge. There appears to be some discoloration along the inner edge, almost as if this was used as a collar. Basically very good condition. An important piece.

http://tinyurl.com/n6bjxwd 1860 ELEGANT & GRAND HAND FINEST FRENCH CHANTILLY LACE SHWAL ROSES & PT ESPRIT
Size: 51″ shoulder to bottom, 176″ circumference.
Starting Price: $24.99 with reserver
Auction ends: Jul 31, 2013 12:57:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller heartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  I’m thinking this isn’t a shawl but a skirt cover, although for the mid 19th c period one might expect a more oval shape. Doesn’t look like the ‘neckline’ or ‘waistline’ has been modified. Chantilly with ombre shading, quite an elaborate romantic design. The motifs are quite large, and note the occasional use of esprits. The few ‘neckline’ closeups show several racroc tears, one quite ragged, but these are fairly localized.  A few pinholes, basically good condition.

Auction ends: 3 days 8 hours from 7/28/2013 10:27 AM MST
Offered by: Ebay seller socios22-2009, Castelar, default, Argentina
Comments:  A Point de Gaze fan with Mother of Pearl/bone sticks. Quite a novel asymmetric design, rather Art Nouveau with well done motifs, no raised work. A few needle-made ‘mode’ fillings. There’s a large amount of Point de Gaze mesh in this piece, and the lace looks in very good condition. Seller says one repair to a stick is needed, not certain where.

Comments:  Another impressive Point de Gaze fan from this seller, MOP sticks. Note the pointed raised petals which have little diamond shaped windows in the clothwork, sing of a better manufacturer.  Good decorative ‘mode’ fillings. Two rather major brown stains which aren’t good for the delicate Point de gaze mesh.  I don’t see any obvious breaks, and I’ll rate this basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/m3jrfuk ANTIQUE LACE PILLOW AND HORSE ALONG WITH BOBBINS / BOOKS
Size: not given
Starting Price: 50.00 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 01, 2013 02:01:00 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller deliachai, Castelar, Northampton, United Kingdom
Comments:  A bolster pillow, horseshoe stand, with over 50 Midlands spangled bobbins of wood and bone. Can’t tell how old the bobbins are, but the two shown on the pillow appear to be decorated. The canvas cover on the pillow looks original, a lacemaker would have added additional colored cloth as a background to her/his work. Overall an outstanding set, very good condition. Wish there were more photos of the stand, I don’t see the wear that I would expect on the footpiece. May have been refinished.

Auction ends: Aug 01, 2013 08:00:05 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller amberfarleigh, Richmond, N. Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A reasonably wide flounce of Duchesse de Bruxelles, joined in a circle and probably removed from a skirt. No raised work in the Point de Gaze inserts. The piece has a good, dense design with lots of raised work in the leaves.  A few pinholes in the mesh, broken brides and discoloration. Basically very good condition.
