This auction has textile lots 774-914 (the second day of the auction) – I received an email from the Jewellery and Decorative Arts specialist saying that these are from an important collection and fresh to the market. There aren’t many lots specifically on lace, and some photos and descriptions are lacking, but take a look at:
Lot 802, A framed Duchesse de Bruxelles fan
Lot 858, An application shawl
Lot 867 Looks like a Milanese 18th century panel showing Adam and Eve
Lot 871 Other Milanese pieces
