Size:  each 4″ x 26″ around.
Starting Price: $49.00
Auction ends: Dec 13, 2013 06:56:11 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller twist-in-time, Pottstown, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: Two cuffs of Belgian Rosaline, later 19th c. They appear to have been cut from a longer length and joined in circles. No perls, but good raised work – note a number of the photos are taken from the back side.  Rosaline is a later Belgian development and usually meticulously worked. These are typical examples.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: These have been formed from a longer border.
Damage: A few frayed threads.
Soilage:  Looks white from the photos, but seller says there’s a ‘patina’.

Size:  3″ x 50″
Starting Price: $145.00, $195.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Dec 14, 2013 o7:42:12 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller antex, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A narrow border of Point de Gaze, no raised work. It is a fairly plain piece, with the only decoration the buttonholed rings.  A light design, but not very refined. I think it’s an interesting example, probably later 19th c.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Can’t see the ends to ascertain the termination. Looks like something has been overcast on the upper edge.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos, but there aren’t many photos.
Soilage:  Off white color, some tiny brown spots. It does look a little shrunken, perhaps a previous washing.

http://tinyurl.com/kn2dljz ANTIQUE HM 18THC MAGNIFECENT VERY RARE & LONG BRUSSELS POINT LACE/ 117″ X 4″
Size:  4″ x 117″
Starting Price: $2,350.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: Dec 14, 2013 o7:52:32 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller snakey03rr, Bourbon, Missouri, United States
Comments: This needlelace border has an interesting naturalistic design, and a fine mesh, although the mesh is a little irregularly placed.  I think it is a later 19th century Burano piece.  If you look very carefully at the edges of the motifs, the heavy thread is couched on, not buttonholed, and this is a Burano characteristic. The clothwork is also very open with a sort of mechanical appearance that the pillow-made needlelace of this region tends to produce. The design resembles the Louis XV style, but looks a little scattered.  A bit different from more conventional Burano products, you can often be surprised at the variations in lace that this area produced.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Six joins, although I’m having trouble finding them – not exactly sure what that means. Ends look cut, one finished with an engrelure.
Damage: Scattered small holes in the mesh.
Soilage:  Ecru color.

Starting Price: $145.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: Dec 14, 2013 10:35:07 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller sugarbaby2011, MB, Canada
Comments: A flounce of Brussels Duchesse. Elaborate Point de Gaze inserts, double layered rose petals and complex decorative ‘mode’ fillings. I like how the fillings proceed from small to large around the lower curve of the Pt d G. Good raised work in the bobbinlace, especially against the halfstitch base.  Overall good design, tending toward a high end market.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Cut on both ends.
Damage: Some pinholes in the Pt de G mesh. Bobbilace looks intact.
Soilage:  “Antique white”, no obvious soilage from the photos.

http://tinyurl.com/lcnxe68 Antique WEDDING Hankderchief HandMade BRUSSELS Bobbin LACE w Point de Gaze AS IS
Size:  13.5″ square
Starting Price: $9.99
Auction ends: Dec 14, 2013 19:24:03 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller winter-garden, West Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Comments: A Point de Gaze handkerchief with good design; not just the conventional roses usually seen. There are a few roses, seen in side view with narrow raised petals, and I especially like the little raised bud in the corner medallions. I’ve never seen that before.  A few decorative ‘mode’ fillings, but mostly this relies on the flatter needlelace design.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None
Damage: Scattered small holes and pinholes in the mesh. A few small holes in the center cloth.
Soilage:  Looks clean from the photos. Does have a little shrinkage, probably from washing (for example, note the twists in the decorative filling stars).

Size:  not given
Starting Price: $100.00, $140.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Dec 15, 2013 05:09:34 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller monroulez, centre, France
Comments: I don’t know anything about wax flowers, but the lace is a Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net. With a few simple needlelace accents. The design is a bit architectural with vertical symmetry – wish there were more photos so the top edge was visible.  Looks like there are flower sprays along the top, with a regular pattern of esprits. Motifs are a little large, but the design is effective and it has a good, bold look.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos, but there are few photos.
Soilage:  Looks quite clean.

Starting Price: 50.00 GBP
Auction ends: Dec 15, 2013 11:05:34 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A rectangular needle-run shawl, could be Limerick but Lierre is also a possibility.  It has a kind of Blonde de Caen style with the heavy edge and several large motifs at the ends – these might include wheat ears.  I think it would be a little more effective if there were three repeats of this motif, but space s limited.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None
Damage: A few small holes and pinholes in the tulle – minor
Soilage:  Looks clean from the photos.
