Offered by: Ebay seller winterwonderlandfairy, london, United Kingdom
Comments: A long collar of Duchesse de Bruges. This is a high-end market piece with some innovative motifs (tulips?), all done in excellent technique. Note the unusual back neckline, no sign of an engrelure. But I believe it is original. Good raised work on half-stitch ground in the strapwork, and the leafwork is impressive.

Comments: A Beds handkerchief “famous Rose and Leaf design”, illustrated in Bucks Cottage Worker’s Agency catalogs (Harry Armstrong).  The pattern comes up for sale occasionally, I have several examples in my collection.  All are slightly different depending on how the lacemaker chooses to work the raised tallies in the motifs.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Two handkerchiefs of Ñanduti, although the second one does not have the typical palm leaf motifs. And I think the center of the second one might be a later addition. Both have typical large sol motifs, 5 different ones n the first, 2 in the second. Smaller motifs are used for joining, with a complex ground in the first one.  Both are good example, although the first is more typical of Ñanduti.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications:  Unsure about the centers of both, the cloth is not well joined in the first piece, and the center is just a bit odd in the second. I don’t know if that was part of the original piece.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Pale ivory color on both, with some small pale brown brown marks.
Finish:  Slight wrinkling, minor.

Offered by: Ebay seller bethsalie, paris, Île-de-France, France
Comments: A border of late 18th c Herren Alençon. Réseau fin along the edge, I can’t tell if it’s brides tortillée or brides bouclé above. I’m guessing buttonholed, but the photos aren’t close enough to tell. Small trefoil leaves used as esprits, and the lower border has circles with two types of fillings. Minimal decorative ‘mode’ fillings.
Provenance:  None cited.

jacket – 16″ shoulder to hem, 17″ wide underarms, 12″ long sleeves.
Starting Price: 120.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sunday, July 12, 2015 12:22 PM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller garden*hill, Reading, United Kingdom
Comments: A jacket and skirt of probably Italian origin. Milanese in style, but probably an early 20thc piece. Some kind of Eastern European origin is not out of the question. Interesting ‘flower pot’ motif in the skirt panels, and note the filling stitches, and occasional decoration of the tape with holes. I’m not particularly bothered by the lack of fitting, I think the piece is designed to fit loosely, and would be worn over some colored under-dress. This is a very interesting set.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications:  None.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Looks clean.
Finish:  A few fold creases.

Starting Price: 20.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sunday, July 12, 2015 12:32 PM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: An insertion and scalloped edge border of Genoese bobbinlace. It looks like an early 17th c piece, especially with the compact woven leaves.  The top insertion is based on reticella design, while the bottom is another typical Genoese motif with a ‘fan-like’ border. You do have to be extremely careful on age attributions with a piece like this, but the photos look good. Especially the double plaited line running vertically which divides the motifs – you see similar things in contemporary Punto in Aria needlelace.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications:  Cut both ends.
Damage: Some loose threads along the top. Seller cites several broken brides.
Soilage: Seller cites mid ivory color with pale brown age marks.

Starting Price: 20.00 GBP
Auction ends: Sunday, July 12, 2015 12:32 PM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller garden*hill, Reading, United Kingdom
Comments: A fairly deep border of Duchesse (cotton).  Note the termination both sides -unusual to see a formal completion on this kind of lace. I’m not sure if it is original. Seller thinks the lace might have been used as a veil, although the design is a little dense for such an application. Motifs are well designed in a dense floral pattern. Note the decorative ‘mode’ fillings in flower centers – although no formal Point de Gaze inserts which would push this toward the Brussels Duchesse style.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:
Modifications:  Both ends finished – not certain if this is original.
Damage: One break in the engrelure, lace looks intact.
Soilage: Creamy color.

Comments: A collar and two cuffs of Carrickmacross applique. A little guipure work in the collar along the outer edge with picoted bride fillings, some meeting in raised circles. Interesting rectangular bar fillings further up.  Also includes ring esprits and some good needlerun fillings.  The cuffs share a 5-petal flower with raised center with the collar, but the match between the two is a little off. I’m wondering if these might also be some kind of pieced collar rather than cuffs.

Comments: I think this is a Dutch cap – note the Beveren lace along the lower border. The cap itself is embroidered net in a similar style as the lace; and the piece has been cut to fir the head.  That’s not an unusual arrangement for caps like this. The cap back is rather small, so there are ties under the chin. Quite an elegant design, and a good example of how Flemish lace makes its way to the Netherlands.
Provenance:  None cited.
Condition:

Damage: Small separation between the fringe and cap back – minor.
Soilage: Looks clean.

Comments: Three large pieces of Chantilly.  One triangular shawl, one diamond-shaped mantilla, one wide flounce probably a skirt piece. You can get a good looks at the shawl in one photo, the rest are a little hard to see. The large ‘trees’ in the triangular shawl almost look Indian in origin. All are basic 2nd Empire romantic floral design. Note the figural flower baskets in the mantilla.  Many racroc splits – these are difficult to repair properly, mainly because of lack of access to the proper thread.
Quite an interesting set of laces.

Comments: A handkerchief of Duchesse de Bruxelles, no raised work in the point de Gaze motifs.  There are three decorative ‘mode’ fillings in each needlelace insert. Conventional Duchesse bobbinlace in a dense pattern, no raised work (piece is photographed from the back, so not sure if there’s raised work on the front side).
