http://tinyurl.com/nxnotmf Antique Drawn Thread h/made 2 Antimacassars linen w double head Eagles Russian ?
Size: each 25″ x 31″
Starting Price: 39.99 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 05, 2013 08:38:38 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  A modern interpretation of ‘Punto Tirato Tela Sfilata’, where threads are drawn out of a linen base to form a pattern, leaving a rectangular grid whipped on all sides for strength. The modern form of this lace hasn’t been well researched, however it was done in Sicily, probably also in Italy. The double-headed eagle motif was used extensively throughout history, in more modern times by Russia, the Austro-Hungarian empire and many Eastern European states. Hard to say what it means here, and if the use is any indication of place of manufacture. It might be something from a trousseau showing a heraldic element.  A few repairs, generally good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/lwzkq8b Antique NEEDLE LACE TABLECLOTH Burato FIGURAL Tea Supper HANDMADE ITALIAN LINEN
Size: 36″ square
Starting Price: $72.00
Auction ends: Aug 05, 2013 20:54:49 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jackjason2, Markham, On, Canada
Comments:  The border on this cloth is an embroidered net, but I’m not exactly sure how the net was made. It’s not Burato, which is embroidery on a leno weave. This one looks like  a drawnwork with the remaining rectangular lattice of threads whipped over. Some cutwork and drawnwork in the center cloth. Probably a Sicilian product, note the little looped picots on the edge, typical of that kind of work. Looks in very good condition.

Comments:  A Point de Gaze collar with raised petal roses -these are nicely designed. Good ‘mode’ decorative fillings, especially the lattice of rings.  A few pinholes and tiny holes in the mesh, one separation on the right outer edge. Generally good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/m2zxpne 1860 LIGHT AS A FEATHER HAND BRUSSELS APPLIQUE LACE SHAWL WITH DEEP FLOUNCE
Size: 25″ max width, 96″ long
Starting Price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Aug 06, 2013 09:45:02 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller hartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A shawl with a deep flounce, bobbinlace applique on machine net, with needle-made fillings. The lace is probably Belgian, and the form recalls the Spanish mantilla. Both the center triangle and the flounce look largely intact, although it would help to tell exactly if there was a photo of the entire piece laid flat. The tulle is a bit shredded in places, but localized damage. Some small pulls and breaks along the top edge, a few damaged fillings. It looks quite delicate. Basically good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/ltvpplg 19THC EXTRAVAGANTLY LARGE BLACK SPANISH BLONDE LACE SHAWL
Size: 75″ x 104″
Starting Price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Aug 06, 2013 09:45:19 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller hartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  The form is very Spanish – a large central mass of lace with a surrounding deep flounce. But the lace here looks more like Blonde de Caen, probably made for the Spanish market. With Spanish blondes the motifs are usually smaller, and they used a 6 pointed star filling rather than the honeycomb in this piece. There are usually woven esprits in Spanish pieces also.  It is a bit hard to tell how intact all the elements of this piece are since there isn’t one photo of the thing laid flat. Some pinholes in the net and some seam separation – racroc looks intact in the photos. Basically very good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/mle4l4z ANTIQUE BEAUTIFUL EXCELLENT CONDITION HAND BRUSSELS LONG LACE STOLE OR VEIL
Size: 20″ x 114″
Starting Price: $24.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Aug 06, 2013 09:45:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller hartnsoul1, Hollis, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A rectangular shawl of mixed lace. Bobbinmade motifs with needlemade ground resembling the Alençon réseau.  Later 19th century Belgian products like this usually went under the name Point de Milan. This one has a better pattern than is normally found, good work, and looks in very good condition. I don’t see any obvious problems from the photos.

Starting Price: 52.00 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 06, 2013 11:31:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller winterwonderlandfairy, london, United Kingdom
Comments:  A collar of Duchesse de Bruxelles. Raised petal roses in the large center Point de Gaze insert, the two end inserts are flat. The bobbinlace is a little on the Bruges side, quite flat with a simple gimp outline. The bobbinlace is basically good condition, the needlelace has some rather sizable holes in the needlelace mesh. The entire piece is a little short of good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/ljcjmcv VINTAGE-HONITON-BOBBIN LACE-FLOWER BASKET-DESIGN- IN AN OVAL-GILT FRAME
Size: frame 5″ x 7.5″
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 06, 2013 11:31:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller nickct007, Newton Abbot, Devon, United Kingdom
Comments:  I checked through a few of my Honiton books but couldn’t find this pattern. Perhaps a LaceNews reader could identify the pattern and artist, Elsie Johnson. 20th century pattern, very nicely done, very good condition. Modern Honiton seems to emphasize areas of half stitch shading more than older pieces.

Comments:  A Duchesse fan, tending toward Bloemwerk. Mother of Pearl sticks with an original double tassel. 3 damaged sticks, the lace looks in generally good condition.

Comments:  A border of Mechlin, early 19th c. An elaborate, yet light design. Seller cites some rust stains, and note several holes throughout. Basically good condition for the age, but rather worn.

http://tinyurl.com/m4gzyfs HANDMADE VICTORIAN ANTIQUE LACE COLLAR ~ Italian Cantu bobbin lace
Size: 7″ deep, 39.5″ neckedge
Starting Price: 24.99 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 07, 2013 11:01:10 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller vintagecountryhome, dans mon grenier, France
Comments:  A black ‘Cantu’ bertha, seller thinks it might be linen. Might be Belgian ‘Rococo’ lace; the hooks and flowerheads don’t flow quite as naturally from the main stems as one would expect in Italian work. The picoted brides are also a little unusual; not to mention the color and thread. Might not be intact on the ends. Basically good condition from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/ks4eyv6 Antique lace making pillow – lace in progress- bobbins, thread -unusual
Size: pillow, 44 cm x 47 cm x 16 cm
Starting Price: 45.00 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 07, 2013 14:53:42 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ruthk726, Claverley, Shropshire, United Kingdom
Comments:  A Belgian 2-part square pillow with bobbins, patterns, thread. Covered with a kind of blue denim-looking material. I don’t know how fine the white thread is, but it looks quite promising. The patterned I believe is pinned to the pillow, not sure, but the pins are very rusted.  Only one photo, but seller describes drawers in the ends, so I’ll assume this is a standard square pillow. From what I can see it looks in generally good condition, aside from the pinned pattern.

http://tinyurl.com/kcw2scu Antique Flemish early handmade lace long and wide length
Size: 10″ x 4 yards 3″
Starting Price: 45.00 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 08, 2013 06:57:20 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments:  An 18th c Flemish tape lace, hard to date exactly. A fairly symmetric design, rather like contemporary Point de France. Note the plaited ground, and I’ll hazard a guess threads from the ground are carried across the backs of the motifs. Some interesting fillings. This is another lace you have to be careful of; there were similar pieces made in England in the late 19th c.  Seller cites some small re-joins and minor pulls. The condition looks very good, almost too good for a really early piece.

http://tinyurl.com/ks98kmt POINT DE GAZE COLLAR, INTRICATE DESIGNS, BIRDS
Size: 24″ wide, 7″ deep
Starting Price: $119.00
Auction ends: Aug 08, 2013 18:57:18 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller madhouserags, Concord, New Hampshire, United States
Comments:  A Point de Gaze probable fan leaf. No raised work that I can find. The design starts out symmetric around the center point, but loses the symmetry toward the ends. I don’t think it has been remade. The work and decorative ‘mode’ fillings are well done, but the design is a little scattered and dense. The ‘bird’ figures referred to in the post look more like buds to me. A few pinholes in the mesh, some age discoloration, basically very good condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A collar of Brussels Duchesse. No raised work in the Point de Gaze medallions, but their designs are carefully drawn, and the mesh looks intact. Good design on the bobbinlace, small, carefully worked motifs with raised work.  A few minor brown spots, generally very good condition.

Comments:  A short length of Point de Gaze, no raised work. The decorative ‘mode’ fillings are interesting and well done. A good design overall, wish there were more of this. Seller cites occasional pinhole and repair. Generally good condition.

http://tinyurl.com/kk44h6y Antique/vintage Carrickmacross guipure lace bertha
Size: 43″ neckline, center back depth 10″
Starting Price: 24.95 GBP
Auction ends: Aug 09, 2013 10:40:16 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments:  A deep Carrickmacross guipure collar. Note the straight picots along the edge, and the lack of ‘Irish’ design elements. This tends to be better quality work in the spectrum of Carrickmacross, and the type is not well document. So we hope it is Carrickmacross. In this piece there’s an unusual cloth transition at the ends, unsure of the purpose. It might be an alteration to lengthen the piece. Occasional loose bride and stain, basically very good condition.

Comments:  A border of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net.  Small, well done motifs, and note the unusual slanted leaves along the lower border giving it a kind of dentate look. Looks in generally very good condition from the photos, perhaps unused.
