http://tinyurl.com/n8xnsr9 Amazing antique Point de Gaze Brussels lace wedding veil shawl – with provenance
Size: ~200 cm square
Starting Price: 450.00 GBP
Auction ends: March 22, 2015 11:45 AM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: A square shawl of Brussels bobbin and needlelace application on machine net. Some of the flowers are done in needlelace – no raised work.  Some single ring and a few grid fillings.  Romantic floral design around the edges with small sprigs used as esprits in the ground.  Many photos, but still a bit hard to get an overall impression of the design – I understand the difficulties of photographing an entire piece this large, but even a poor impression of an entire piece laid out flat is better than the piecemeal approach. The design is appropriate to the piece, with fairly large motifs.  Interesting comparison of this piece with the contemporary Honiton applique veil reviewed last week. The Brussels piece is more elaborate, but the overall feel is much the same.
Provenance:  Country house estate in Yorkshire, details to be provided to buyer.
Modifications:  None.
Damage: Small holes in the ground, pinholes, inexpert repairs. Scattered holes in the Point de Gaze mesh in the needle-made flowers.
Soilage: Some localized brown staining, compromises the tulle in places.
Finish: No obvious folds or creases – it has a lovely drape.

Size: 26 cm x 440 cm
Starting Price: 140.00 GBP
Auction ends: March 22, 2015 1:06 PM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: An Italian mixed tape border – woven tape with needle-made fillings. I hesitate to attribute a date – but there is an early version of this called ‘mezzo punto’. The motifs in this piece do resemble the early Venetian and Genoese style (especially how the fillings are done). Brides look needle-made. It really doesn’t have a Victorian feel. I suspect it is linen, but can’t confirm from the photos. Interesting piece.
Provenance:  None cited.
Modifications:  Can’t see ends to tell if they are cut.
Damage: A few broken brides.  Overall wear.
Soilage: Resembles nr. 213 on Farrow & Ball colour chart (Savage Ground). (Kudos to the seller for that description.  This is a shop that makes paint & wallpaper. It would be nice to get a standard that people could use – think I’ll write a LaceNews post on the subject).  Seller notes no marks or stains.
Finish: No obvious folds or creases.

Comments: An Irish Crochet shawl collar.  I don’t think the last photo in the listing belongs to this piece.  Large traditional motifs with raised work, heavy dense technique.  don’t see the traditional three-part pinwheel design of the motif organization, but there is an interesting joined loop between adjacent motifs.  Square brides – I think the picots are Clones knots.

Soilage: Looks a little cream color.
Finish: No obvious folds or creases.

Excellent technique, crocheted loops used as picots in the brides.

Comments: A parasol cover of Brussels bobbin and needlelace applique on machine net. No raised work in the needlelace. Note the interesting needlelace center with ring and knot fillings.  Usually these center parts are a little peaked to accommodate the tip of the parasol, but this one looks flat.

Comments: A Duchesse de Bruges shawl collar with an additional border attached along the neckline. A little on the bloemwerk side given all the gimp work, nothing raised that I can find. Irregular plaited brides. The design is quite dense, yes the technique more loosely woven giving this a light appearance.

Comments: Could be a Bucks lappet scarf. Or perhaps Lille. There’s a single thread gimp running around all motifs, along with a little woven tally work used as fillings. I have one like this in my own collection with the single row of dots running along the upper band. Not sure where that one is from either, but I’m leaning toward Bucks.

Size: 61″ x 3.2″ to 2.1″
Starting Price: 200.00 GBP
Auction ends: March 24, 2015 12:36 PM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A lappet set with joining band. It has Brabant characteristics, the ‘fond chant’ ground or some variation of that, and the motifs are not quite as finely drawn as in the best Flemish work. There is quite a pleasing symmetry to the lappets (almost French candelabra), and the weaving is tightly done, which are characteristics not often seen in Brabant.  Very simple picoted bride fillings, and a little bit of partridge eye. In some sense this is sophisticated, in another sense, not. Early Devon, maybe, but the atypical ground and the style of the motifs makes me think Brabant.
The joining band has a separate pattern, close to be not exactly matching the lappets. And there’s an interruption on the left join in the last photo which makes me think they aren’t strictly continuous.
Provenance:  Ex. coll. Pat Earnshaw.
Modifications:  None.
Damage: A break in a filling in the left lappet. Seller cites a small repair to one end, but I’m having trouble finding it.
Soilage: Pale ivory color.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Comments: A shaped cape of muslin applique on machine net.  The tambour edging of the motifs would argue for a Belgian manufacture.
