Offered by: Ebay seller  greatlace, Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: A lappet scarf of Chantilly.  With a little bit of shading at the ends, but I don’t think it’s an ombre product. Probably Belgian.

Starting Price: $14.00
Auction ends: Sep 15, 2013 18:01:09 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  mixedupcolors, Shreveport, Louisiana, United States
Comments: A border of Alençon needlelace. Rather simple design resembling 3rd quarter 18th century, but I wonder if it isn’t much later.  Réseau fin along the border, and perhaps brides bouclé above; can’t really tell from the photos. The motifs have a tight linen stitch, which makes me think it is an earlier piece.  Very few decorative ‘modes’.
Condition: Modifications:  cut at both ends, rather short.
Damage:  A few minor pulls and repairs.
Soilage:  Seller cites a few stains, hard to spot in the photos.

Comments: A border of Youghal needlelace which looks to have been used as a collar. Short repeat, typical Youghal combination of dense and light clothwork. No elaborate fillings.

Auction ends: Sep 16, 2013 08:17:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  staithes2beck, Sheffield, United Kingdom

Condition: Modifications:  The one end that I can see is cut.
Damage:  No obvious damage from photo.
Soilage:  Looks a little wrinkled and overly white, perhaps from laundering.

Size: 22″ x 212″
Starting Price: 14.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 17, 2013 12:00:13 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  baraud, Newton Abbot, United Kingdom
Comments: A wide, long crinoline flounce, bobbinlace applique on machine net. A few tiny needlelace accents used as fillings. Good 3rd quarter 19th c romantic design of flower bunches and swags. Note the extensive use of esprits in the upper ground.
Condition: Modifications:  Can’t tell the condition of the ends.
Damage:  Numerous small holes and pinholes in the ground, expected for this kind of lace. Note the large diagonal repair lines, some look like patches.
Soilage:  The motifs don’t look very crisp – a little scraggly.  I’m thinking this has to do with a past washing. Seller says the piece is a creamy white.

http://tinyurl.com/kxqsouo Pretty Victorian Lace Lappet Branscombe Tape Vintage Fashion Dress Costume
Size: 3″ x 54″
Starting Price: 5.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 17, 2013 12:38:14 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  cottonlily, Chester, United Kingdom
Comments: There’s a lot to indicate this might be Branscombe – the heavily looped picots, and the raised spider fillings. But the edges don’t have the typical buttonholed loops. And the large rings aren’t typically Branscombe. But the possibility is there.  Nice design, recalling early Italian needlelace.
Condition: Modifications:  none
Damage:  Some tiny fraying on the brides here and there, very minor.
Soilage:  Nothing obvious – seller says it is a creamy white.

Auction ends: Sep 18, 2013 6:02:48 PDT

Comments: A Beds Maltese collar, nice design of halfstitch leaves and raised tallies used as marking lines. The design is symmetric with leaves on the inside, flowers on the outside.
Condition: Modifications:  none
Damage:  Perhaps one broken bride center back.
Soilage:  Looks quite clean from the photos.

Size: Collar 11″ x 5.5″, pendants 6″ x 2″. Not sure what these measurements mean.
Starting Price: $29.99
Auction ends: Sep 18, 2013 08:45:21 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  ajet-221, Athens, Georgia, United States
Comments: A little ‘necklace’ of Bruges bloemwerk. These come up occasionally and vary a lot in the quality of design. This one uses bloemwerk techniques, fairly standard motifs arranged in a good pendant design. Wish there were more of these around, they can be quite charming.
Condition: Modifications:  none
Damage:  Looks intact
Soilage:  A little soiled, could use a conservation wash with proper blocking.

http://tinyurl.com/muc7w4d Gorgeous! Point de Gaze Brussels Antique Victorian Lace Collar
Size: 16″ neckline, 8.5″ to 10.5″ deep
Starting Price: $88.00
Auction ends: Sep 18, 2013 10:58:59PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  vintageblessings, Meridian, Ohio, United States
Comments: A collar of Duchesse de Bruxelles, probably meant as a dress front – no point in putting the Point de Gaze in the back. Raised petal rose in the needlelace. The bobbinlace is a little on the Bruges side, little raised work, but nicely done. Crisp, clean design, very appropriate to the form.
Condition: Modifications:  none
Damage:  None that I can spot from the photo
Soilage:  Seller cites only two light spots.

Starting Price: $34.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Sep 18, 2013 14:58:24 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  smarthatpete, Arlington Heights, Illinois, United States
Comments: A long, reasonably wide collectible Duchesse de Bruxelles flounce. No raised work in the Point de Gaze needlework. Plenty of raised work in the bobbinlace, rolled edges and raised areas above halfstitch. This is a good tight design, a little on the Bruges side in a good way.
Condition: Modifications:  One end has a small piece cut away.
Damage:  Few tiny separations and broken brides, very minor.
Soilage:  Seller cites age-related patina and a few dark marks. Storage scent.

Starting Price: 24.99 GBP
Auction ends: Sep 19, 2013 07:53:50 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller  discover4, Arlington Heights, Illinois, United States
Comments: This is much more typical of Branscombe. Looped picots, raised spider fillings, and the buttonhole loops on the edges. It also looks a bit lighter than the piece described above. Good, flowing design.
Condition: Modifications:  None, ends seem to be original.
Damage:  Maybe a pinhole here and there, but nothing really obvious.
Soilage:  Looks quite clean from the photos.
