Starting Price: 11.50 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 13, 2014 11:44:28 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Three pieces of Carrickmacross applique; one cuff, one probably neckpiece, and an insertion fragment. All nicely worked and the two intact pieces have some interesting raised work.  I especially like the cuff with a rather art nouveau design.  The insertion fragment is an unusual form, wish there were more.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Cuff and collar intact, fragment cut both ends. The upper corners of the collar look a little strange, wonder if there’s a fastening attached on the backside.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.

Finish:  No obvious creases, slight wrinkling.

Starting Price: 11.50 GBP
Auction ends: Jul 13, 2014 11:44:28 PDT

Comments: A long, narrow Mechlin border with relatively straight edge. I’s an early 19th c style, although could have been made anytime in the 19th c. Determining the fiber type would help with date. The design itself recalls the ‘Herren Alençon’ with a narrow border and small sprigs in the upper ground. Note the slightly streaky mesh, characteristic of this lace.
Provenance:  None cited.

Modifications: Cut both ends, folded finish on one end,
Damage: Numerous small holes and pinholes thoughout.
Soilage: ‘pale ivory colour’.
Finish:  Slightly wrinkled with a few folds, not serious.

Comments: A handkerchief edged with Duchesse de Bruges, some raised work in the corner flowers.  The design has an interesting ‘rayed’ effect which fortunately doesn’t all converge on one central point, and this helps break up the symmetry a bit.  Nice edge treatment next to the cloth. Interesting piece, doing a lot with well-worked conventional motifs.

Offered by: Ebay seller f.de.lys, Vannes, France
Comments: A lacemaker’s lamp with flared base of the type often found in Normandy, occasionally making it to the UK. Probably French manufacture.  This type is well documented in photography.

Auction ends: Jul 14, 2014 18:08:48 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller countryliving, Auburn, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A handkerchief bordered with cotton Duchesse de Bruges, meaning Duchesse without the Point de Gaze fillings. In fact there don’t seem to even be any tiny needle-made fillings in the flowers, everything is bobbin-made. Some raised work, mainly rolled edges.  Good design using conventional elements.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: None, although I wonder if the center cloth has been replace. Attachment stitches aren’t very refined.
Damage: A few frayed threads, primarily in the brides.
Soilage: Looks clean.
Finish:  Horizontal and vertical fold creases.  Some edges aren’t quite as sharp as they could be, might have been washed.

Starting Price: $185.00 Buy-it-Now or Make Offer
Auction ends: Jul 14, 2014 20:29:57 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lacemerchant, Whiting, Indiana, United States
Comments: A fairly wide border of Milanese tape lace with a strange ground, seller calls it ‘torchon’, and that’s not a bad description. It does deviate from the usual plaited grounds of early Milanese.  Good tight tape work with only occasional decoration, and the flowerheads are excellent. The design is also very symmetric, more recalling Abruzzi work. I think it’s a later piece, maybe late 18th or 19th c.
Provenance:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.
Condition:
Modifications: Can’t see the ends to tell if they are cut. Cloth remnant at the top edge from a previous attachment.  Joined in a circle, might have been an alb border.
Damage: Some broken threads and repairs primarily in the fillings. A few breaks in the mesh.
Soilage: Seller says it has been freshly washed, but gives no details on the process. Light ivory white.
Finish:  No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Auction ends: Jul 15, 2014 04:53:23 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller oreles, chez moi, France
Comments: A collar of Valenciennes with square mesh.  I’ve seen this design before, but never in this good a shape. Shaped pieces of Valenciennes are fairly unusual; normally they are confined to very small collars and cuffs.  Somehow I get the impression from the photos that the piece is a bit dense, as if a slightly thicker thread was used than normal. But it is difficult to tell from the photos.
Provenance:  None cited
Condition:

Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: A little yellowed.

Auction ends: Jul 15, 2014 08:20:38 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, Irvington, New York, United States
Comments: An elaborate narrow scarf of Duchesse de Bruxelles, but rather unusual. No raised work in the Point de Gaze inserts. A little raised work in the bobbinlace motifs which are very delicately done, and I especially like the looped picoted plaited ground.  You see this, but rarely in this type of lace. Overall I think the design is wonderfully crowded and mixed up – I laugh just looking at it.
Provenance:  Museum deaccession.
Condition:
Modifications: None.
Damage: Some pinholes in the PdG mesh.
Soilage: A few small brown stains.

Offered by: Ebay seller ncnonny, Rye, New York, United States
Comments: Hmmm.  In the #1 2013 issues of the OIDFA bulletin, there is an article about the Bayeux Tapestry needlelace copy at the Smithsonian collection in Washington DC, which was subsequently and very credibly identified as a product of the Lefèbure manufactory.  I think that the similarities of this piece with the other one are so strong that I’m going to call this French, probably also from Lefèbure.  Beautiful technique.  It doesn’t look Italian to me at all, either in style or technique.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: Cut from a larger piece. Remnants of purple thread at right.
Damage: One small hole lower right.
Soilage: Looks clean.

Offered by: Ebay seller ncnonny, Rye, New York, United States
Comments: A round, deep collar of Venise, probably Belgian from the way they use chains of rings.  In the early 20th century they called this Point à la Rose, and I show an example from a catalog below. The Ebay example lacks the needlelace edge, but I’m highly certain they are the same thing.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications: This might have been cut down from a bertha, one end looks cut and secured.
Damage: One hole in the neckline corner lower right.   Occasional broken bride.
Soilage: Looks clean.

Comments: Collars in Brussels applique on machine net don’t come along that often, and I thought this one was interesting.  The design isn’t symmetric but it really fills the space. The work seems a bit loose.  Note the lower flower, they seem to have used another type of tulle as filling in the upper petals.
