http://tinyurl.com/n9zlwd8 Beautiful antique Victorian handmade Honiton lac dress front – wedding?
Size:  collar: 36 cm  around, panel: 22cm x 26 cm
Starting Price: 42.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 23, 2014 11:45:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: A dress front with attached choker collar of Honiton. The lace looks like it was made for the panel form, nicely scattered flower garden appearance, a bit snails/slugs style with well done large tally filling areas. Not sure if the choker is a matching piece or just adapted from a separate border.  The oval form for the dress front is a bit unusual.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Panel attached to fine silk chiffon.  3 hooks and bars at back of collar.
Damage: Nothing obvious from photos.
Soilage: Looks maybe a beige color.

http://tinyurl.com/o7e5cq4 Rare & large Georgian Regency antique lace shawl with botah design c1810-20
Size:  22″ x 100″
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 23, 2014 12:28:54 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller poppy1109, Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments: A long, rectangular shawl of embroidered net.  Motifs outlined with a needlerun heavy thread, probably linen, while the rest would be a cotton embroidery in which I believe is a very long chain stitch. Fillings are needlerun and nicely done. The design echos what was being done with the Blonde de Caen point ground laces with the designs massed at the ends, and does have the flavor of Indian Kasmiri shawl motifs.  (This type of embroidery on net was not done in India itself.) Hard to say when and where it was made, this form is often found in the 19th c. I will say that the tulle itself has the heavy white appearance (very soft and supple) that you often find used in English Honiton applique.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None
Damage: Some small holes in the tulle, a few darned repairs.
Soilage: Seller rinsed the piece in cold water. Ground described as ‘dull’, with some faint underlying staining.

http://tinyurl.com/p2dw3hw Very pretty flounce antique Victorian Brussels bobbin application lace
Size:  11″ x 50″
Starting Price: 10.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 23, 2014 12:35:11 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller poppy1109, Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom
Comments: A border of Brussels bobbinlace application on machine net.  A few simple needlelace accents in flower centers – the round esprits in the ground look bobbin-made. It is a good width which is consistent with the ‘crinoline flounce’ concept, although the design and slightly loosely worked motifs are more a middle-market style.  Last half of the 19th c, hard to tell exactly when.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Can’t see ends to tell if they are cut.
Damage: Small holes and pinholes in the ground.  One  larger hole next to engrelure.
Soilage: Off-white color.

Starting Price: $129.99
Auction ends: Mar 23, 2014 13:58:08 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller maga_s, Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse fan with decorated Mother of Pearl (Abalone) sticks.  Box is appropriate but not original.  The original tassel is present. The Point de Gaze inserts have no raised work, and overall the technique is a little light and the motifs rather simple.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None – box not original.
Damage: What looks like a hole in the Pt de Gaze mesh I think is just a stain.
Soilage: Brown spot staining, especially along sticks, might be a glue condition.

Starting Price: 29.99 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 24, 2014 12:35:11 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: This is one of those indeterminate silk guipures that are so difficult to place. Could be Spanish, French, or Russian.  I don’t think Maltese, the design is simply not typical, and I don’t recognize the ground.  Note also the gimp surrounding motifs; this is usually not a Maltese characteristic.  It is an interesting design, bold and nicely done.
Provenance:  None cited.

Auction ends: Mar 24, 2014 09:25:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: A collar of English floral Beds lace.  Nicely done brides, and note the distinctive gimp inside the clothwork.  A good design of leaf wreaths, with other leaf and flower clusters.  The plaited neckline is a little unusual, but I think it was made with the piece.  Interesting solution to edging something like this.
Provenance:  None cited.

Damage: Seller cites a few minor pulls.

Starting Price: 90.00 GBP
Auction ends: Mar 24, 2014 09:25:40 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller discover4, London, United Kingdom
Comments: This is quite a sophisticated mid 18th c Brussels bobbinlace lappet with droschel ground.  In this Louis XV style, one looks especially for interesting fillings stitches, and the ones here are varied and nicely done. The clothwork and raised edges are very beautifully worked. This is a high end market piece, but see condition notes below.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Cut at the top, unfortunately right through the top motif. Second lappet missing.
Damage: A few holes of varying size in the droschel, but damage seems confined to the mesh (except for one filling area at the end).  Split in the outside (looks like a small piece missing) lower right side.
Soilage: Looks clean from the photos.

Starting Price: $10.00
Auction ends: Mar 24, 2014 13:15:35 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller whitehallvintage, Crozet, Virginia, United States
Comments: A high end market Point de Gaze shawl. Romantic floral design, and I especially like the raised petal tulip, a very unusual motif.  Pointed raised petals on the roses with some diamond holes in the clothwork.  Good and varied decorative ‘mode’ fillings, and note the raised ring chains outlining some flower centers.  An impressive looking piece.
Provenance:  None cited

Starting Price: $495.00
Auction ends: Mar 24, 2014 18:52:19 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: A table cover with a Brussels Duchesse border. Raised petals in the Point de Gaze roses.  It is definitely unusual to see Duchesse used this way, so I’m thinking it’s a later piece, probably early 20th c.  You don’t see a lot of table linens like this earlier. Conventional motifs, nicely done.

Offered by: Ebay seller jamiexmas*, Southbridge, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: A dress front and cuffs of Irish crochet.  Good tight work on the motifs.  This is all mounted on a black bodice. It looks like a piece has been added to the lower portion of the drape, and probably extends all the way around the bodice.  Interesting to see something like this on an actual garment, but it is difficult to tell if everything is original.
Provenance:  Bodice from Mme Arrivets, Paris.
Condition:

Comments: Collar of Brussels Duchesse, raised petals in the Point de Gaze inserts.  Laid flat you can see that the front pieces look like jacket lapels, which gives a little wing-like flair to the shoulders.  Nice swirling leaf design down the points; raised work against half-stitch ground throughout in the bobbinlace.

Comments: A Point de Gaze bertha with raised petal roses.

Starting Price: $45.00
Auction ends: Mar 27, 2014 12:40:19 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller jaruk, Worcester, United Kingdom
Comments: A wider border and 2 sections of a narrower border of a continuous bobbinlace with gimp, fond chant ground, and a few snowflake and some bar-like fillings.  Looks like linen.  They are narrow and delicate, but the design of the clothwork is not very sophisticated.  As if it originally had been a more elaborate design, but simplified over time. I think they might be Piedmont laces, of the type that Françoise Monneret writes so elegantly about. But that is just a guess.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: 3 joins in larger piece. All cut at ends.
Damage:  A few pinholes throughout. 2 narrow edges have small breaks at one end. Last 9″ of larger piece in poor condition.

Offered by: Ebay seller gede34, Dans mes armoires, France
Comments: I’ll call it a very long Le Puy guipure, although the design is a bit untypical. No plaited ground, for example, but the flower motifs against a point ground are there. Some interesting grid leaf fillings at the top in hemispherical loops. It seems to have a lot in common with Chantilly (note some half-stitch elements), although it’s a heavy black silk.

Offered by: Ebay seller vikymako, Madrid, Spain
Comments: A very beautiful fan of figural (butterflies) Valenciennes lace.  I think this is one piece, however it might be a Valenciennes de Gand pieced lace – would have to get it under the microscope to tell.  The mesh does look like a 4-thread plait, not the 3-thread of Val de Gand, and I think I see the mesh entering the design. So for the moment I’ll go with plain Valenciennes.  Wonderful design, with a little ombre shading in some flowers. The sticks are elaborately carved, maybe overly so for such a fine piece of lace.
