http://tinyurl.com/kh6bna5 112 ins antique/vintage tape and needle lace border poss. late17th century
Size:  7″ x 3 yards 4″
Starting Price: 40.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 02, 2014 10:23:51 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Some of this piece is a woven tape with needlelace fillings – the so-called Mezzo Punto.  Other parts are all needlelace – and that in itself is unusual – normally it’s Mezzo Punto or needlelace, not a combination.  The brides with picoted loops are something you see in English early work, and it looks like some of the fillings are made with knotted stitches, not twisted ones. This is an early English characteristic. Yet I don’t think this is a really early piece, and I’ve been reading a lot lately about late 19th century copies of early needlelace made in England (especially by Treadwin who brags about how she carefully duplicated threads, techniques, and even color). I’m not saying that this is one of her copies, but I do think the technique doesn’t really have the precise old technique. And the piece is suspiciously long and in good condition.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Both ends cut, interesting bobbin-made engrelure attached.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: It has an older patina and feel, and is generally soiled.

Size:  4″ x 133″
Starting Price: 40.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 02, 2014 10:32:34 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A Milanese tape lace with typical plaited ground.  The design is an undulating tape with flower head terminations incorporating holes in the tape – a little plain for Milanese, but a staple product.  I’m thinking it’s a later piece – Milanese developed in the mid 17th c originally copying the designs of Venetian needlelaces. But it was a long-enduring lace, simplifying over the years, and you see photos of women making it even in the early 20th c.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Ends and lower border have a needle-made edging added. Probably not original since the ends look cut. Apparently used on a black dress, some threads remain at the top.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Worn, aged appearance and color.

Comments: I think this is a fan leaf, even though there isn’t the extra piece on one end for the guard stick.  Wish there were some dimensions.  Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net, with a few simple needlelace fillings.  Romantic design with a little raised work. A good middle market piece

Comments: An Italian tape lace, the form resembles the very fine l’Aquila tape laces. But I think this is a later example, and the design is a lot more open, but still has the l’Aquila symmetry. Looks like some of the plaited fillings and connections were added later, although you’d have to get it under a microscope to tell for certain.  No width is given, that might give more information.
Provenance:  None cited.

Soilage: Brown beige color, as are all of the pieces this seller has from this collection.  They really are consistent, and I wonder if they all got a tea bath at some point.

Comments: A shawl of Honiton applique on machine net.  I think it’s square in shape, and could be used as a veil, or doubled as a shawl.

Offered by: Ebay seller yellow_daisy, Carlisle, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: I’ve been helping this seller with descriptions, and this is an interesting one. Mrs. Treadwin died in 1890 and her shop was continued by Ellen Herbert until 1929. Unclear exactly when the lace was purchased, but it does seem that it was after Mrs. Treadwin’s death.  It appears that it was cut from a longer piece in 1927. Treadwin usually marketed local work, however this piece does look to me like a Sluis Duchesse modeled on an older Brabant pattern.
Provenance:  From an old New England lace collection.  Attached note: Jan. 1927, Honiton (?) Lace from Lady Mt. Stephen bought at Mrs. Treadwin’s shop in Exeter, Devon.
Condition:
Modifications: Ends cut, engrelure added.
Damage: One small repair.
Soilage: Seller cites small age spots, see photos.

Offered by: Ebay seller sirjle, Paris, France
Comments: This seller is offering several borders of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net. I’ll talk about three of them, but go to the seller’s page to see more.  Applications like this were a very popular lace, and I’m surprised we don’t see more in the US. They are a staple product of many French dealers. Quality can vary a lot, and they could be made fairly quickly. They often have a few needlelace fillings, usually juts simple knots, and are sometimes called ‘Application d’Angleterre’, although I hesitate to use the term since it is not too well defined. Old catalogs usually say something like ‘Application de Bruxelles’. The examples shown here are typical middle-market patterns, light and simple, probably later 19th c.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: All segments cut at the ends.
Damage: A few small holes throughout the pieces.

Starting Price: $75.00
Auction ends: Mar 04, 2014 20:39:48 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller lacemerchant, Whiting, Indiana, United States
Comments: We see a lot of Irish Crochet around and there are many types. Early on the art imitated Venetian Gros Point, and occasionally you find a piece more or less true to that origin. I do recognize a few motifs here that resemble the earlier pieces, and the looped picots are quite unusual.  So is the rather elaborate raised work on some medallions. Note in particular the picots around the edges of the motifs giving them a little frilly appearance.
Provenance:  None cited
Condition:
Modifications: It looks like a set, although I can’t see the backside of the cuffs to tell if these were originally cuffs or adapted from a longer length.  The design of the collar isn’t very consistent around the center motif, looks like there’s some alterations in this area.
Damage: A few loose trailing threads and broken brides.  Seller cites a few old repairs.
Soilage: Hard to tell from the photos, but looks like a cream color.

Starting Price: 20.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 05, 2014 11:06:10 PST
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: This is a lace we call ‘Punto Tirato Tela Sfilata’, which is the name given in very early pattern books. Basically a drawnwork with remaining threads whipped around to secure. They were usually made as part of a larger linen, and this has been cut away from the original base.  the work is quite precise. Date is always difficult on things like this, known pattern books go back into the 16th century, but it was extensively made for several hundred years.  17th c is a possibility.

Offered by: Ebay seller snakey03rr, Bourbon, Missouri, United States
Comments: I’ve been discussing this piece with the seller and looking at some additional closeup photos, which is why it got added late to the Alerts. My take is that it is a late 19th or early 20th century Belgian needlelace, in the style of Point de France.  A couple things catch my eye.  The needlelace clothwork is a little coarse and doesn’t follow the outlines of the motifs well in many places.  The motifs always have a buttonholed cordonnet, which is not typical of early Point de France. This cordonnet is buttonholed with spaced stitches, a Belgian technique often seen in Point de Gaze. The brides are a little strange, they are knotted loops of thread, and this does not seem to have been a wise technical choice. The single thread loop is easily damaged, and it looks like the piece is cotton which doesn’t help matters any.  Many of the brides look frayed. In an early piece all the picots would be buttonholed. Also, some of the padded outlines are well shaped, others are kind of chopped off at the ends. Overall the piece has a bit of a heavy look.
It’s definitely an interesting piece.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Cut on both ends.
Damage: A few loose brides, along with fraying on the brides because of the technique, see comments.
Soilage: Overall ecru color.
