http://tinyurl.com/pa9mphc Rare! Old Antique Vintage Rosaline Perlee Lace Edge Trim! Doll Bear Dress
Size: 2.75″ x 23″
Starting Price: $14.00
Auction ends: Sep 08, 2013 14:53:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  mixedupcolors, Shreveport, Louisiana, United States
Comments: I can only see one end of this border, which looks intact, so I can’t tell if it has been cut from a larger piece or is all original. Rosaline Perlé, and I think the perls are needle-done, although the photos aren’t close enough to tell. Note, no brides, which is a Rosaline variation that can be very impressive in design. The weaving on this one looks just a little loose, and it has that slightly wrinkled washed look. Seller cites a few slight breaks. Generally good condition.

Auction ends: Sep 10, 2013 12:36:51 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  cottonily, Chester, United Kingdom
Comments: A Duchesse de Bruxelles collar, nicely shaped. No raised work in the needlelace inserts.  The bobbinlace is complex and well work, quite a good design for the shape.  A few needlelace ‘mode’ decorations, not the line of rings above the Point de Gaze. I don’t see any problems with the condition from the photos, generally very good.

Comments: A large Maltese cream silk shawl collar, same collection as the previous piece. Border treatment of Maltese crosses with grids of woven leaves just inside.  In the center there is good guipure work surrounding some nice flower motifs with crosses inside. Seller cites some age spotting and open places, looks a little worn, or maybe just wrinkled around the edges. Generally good condition.

Comments: Another Maltese piece from the same collection, this one a vest. The design is a kind of patchwork with a square repeat of a large flower of very heavy overlapping woven leaves, triangular guipure in the corners. They match together very nicely.  One Maltese cross on the back with what looks like a crown above. Crosses along all outside edges.  It looks like it was made for this form. One open shoulder seam, basically very good condition.

Auction ends: Sep 10, 2013 13:40:56 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller nedbraden1972, Spokane, Washington, United States
Comments: A small Irish Crochet collar, note the very small neck measurement.  The motifs are well made, raised rings in the centers.  The picots in the ground might be Clones knots, hard to tell. The motifs are a bit large for the size of the piece.  Basically very good condition, I don’t see any obvious problems from the photos.

Comments: A lappet scarf of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. A little needlelace in the form of fillings in the flowers at the ends.  It’s a fairly simple middle market piece.

http://tinyurl.com/oe6nnge Antique Brussels handmade lace lovely length
Size: 4.5″ x 2 yards 13″
Starting Price: 39.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 11, 2013 08:54:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: OK, I’m through with my very vague condition reports, and am trying something different. I’ll make notes in three areas – modifications to the original piece, damage compromising the original work and needing repair, and soilage  which mostly means dirt and stains that can usually be corrected, as well as storage marks, and secondary condition issues from laundering and bleaching. That leaves the comments open just to identify the lace and discuss the design. We’ll see how that goes.
This is a border of Duchesse de Bruges, meaning no needlelace additions. Some raised work on half-stitch ground and good rolled ribs n the leaves.  the design is a little conventional. Note the islands in the picoted brides – a feature often found in Bruges laces.
Condition: Modifications:  one join
Damage:  few loose brides, some small holes, minor
Soilage: some storage discoloration

290971807168   Sold for 92.00 GBP, 6 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/ot4f5ay ANTIQUE LACE-FINE GROS POINT NEEDLEPOINT COLLAR
Size: 36″ x ~5″
Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Sep 11, 2013 10:10:38 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: I think this is a late 19th century Gros Point, perhaps from the Vienna Lace School. What really gets my attention are the large rings incorporated into the clothwork – you can see something similar on the cover of Clare Browne’s Lace from the Victoria and Albert Museum (see photo below – that is a documented piece from 1880). Not quite as exuberant as the V&A piece, but the basic elements seem to be there. Vienna at this time was in direct competition with Point Colbert in France.  The sculptural quality of the motif raised edges, and the regularity of the clothwork is very good in these pieces.  This is not a well documented type of lace.
Condition:  Modifications:  none
Damage:  Might be a discontinuity at the very top of the photo on the edge.
Soilage: nothing obvious from photos.

http://tinyurl.com/ou6ypmc Beautiful Antique Handmade Lace Wedding Handkerchief
Size: 14″ square
Starting Price: 14.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 11, 2013 12:00:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller baraud, Newton Abbott, United Kingdom
Comments: A high end market handkerchief of Belgian needlelace. I think we need to be more careful about terminology, and resist the temptation to label everything Point de Gaze. At the time this was made it would have been called Point de l’Aiguille Belge. This one is quite fine, no raised work, and extensive decorative ‘mode’ fillings. Note the little medallion at the center of each side, unusual, but not unknown.  The design is a bit crowded, and the execution is very good.
Condition:  Modifications:  none. It has been mounted on blue silk.
Damage:  Small holes and pinholes in the mesh, difficult to repair
Soilage: None that I can see from the photos.

Starting Price: $85.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Sep 12, 2013 16:14:32 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller gb-best, New Ringgold, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A bertha of Cluny lace, France is as good a guess as any. The raised tallies in the clothwork is a distinguishing mark of this kind of lace. Very similar to Ebay #160887061172, see http://tinyurl.com/q4xjgwn.
Condition:  Modifications:   One end cut short
Damage:  Occasional fraying on the scalloped edge.
Soilage:   Seller notes ecru color.

Auction ends: Sep 12, 2013 18:00:51 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller things*most*delightful, Sacramento, California, United States
Comments: A Ñanduti tablecloth with 6 napkins, note the inserts in the cloth. I’ve seen one other like this, no napkins, sold on Ebay in 2010. The lace looks like the finer more traditional high quality product from the early 20th c.
Condition:  Modifications:  none
Damage:  One small hole in cloth.
Soilage:  Some storage spots, fold lines, yellowing on one edge.

Starting Price: 4.95 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 13, 2013 10:02:07 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A small collar with front points of Beds Maltese. the leaf pattern is quite typical of later 19th c. Beds, along with the elaborate edge plaiting, and raised tallies.
Condition:  Modifications:  none
Damage:  Seller cites some small areas of wear, which I can’t find in the photos.
Soilage:  Looks a little flat, perhaps from laundering.
