Comments: A bertha of Point de Milan.  This is a later 19th to 20th c Belgian lace with bobbin-made motifs, and a heavy twisted-return needle-made ground. Quality varies widely in this lace,and it is often used for table linens. This example has well-done motifs with some honeycomb fillings, also single woven tallies used in small filling areas. Seems to be a pomegranate design.  Good example of the type.
Provenance: None cited.
Condition
Modifications: None.
Damage: Some small breaks and holes in the mesh, a few repairs.  Neckline slightly frayed.
Soilage: ‘mid ivory color’, with some areas of browning.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles

Offered by: Ebay seller hedgehogpear, BN8, United Kingdom
Comments: Three bobbinlace butterflies in different techniques. We often see Point de Gaze butterflies, but bobbin-made ones are a bit unusual as single pieces.  The first is Beds, the second appears to be a Cluny or perhaps Maltese, the third is Honiton.   I think the second is silk, but hard to tell from the photos.  However the general technique, particularly the raised leaves argue more for a French Cluny origin.  All three are well done technically with good design.
Provenance: None cited.
Condition
Modifications: None.
Damage: Honiton has a shifted tally in lower right wing, but I don’t think it’s broken. The other two appear intact.
Soilage: Ecru color on Beds & Honiton, Cluny appears white.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Auction ends: July 29, 2015 6:21 AM PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller lacemerchant, Whiting, Indiana, United States
Comments: A Maltese mantilla, typical diamond shape with lappet ends. The center roundel looks a little lighter color than the rest of the piece.  Good guipure work outside of the center and down the lappets.  The outside edge alternates between a flower motif and a mat of woven leaves.  I like the use of the wheat ear motifs in the center part.
Provenance: None cited.

Offered by: Ebay seller karmacleo, Merrit Island, Florida, United States
Comments: A long collar of Brussels Duchesse. No raised work in the Point de Gaze inserts, but the needle-made raised edges are very prominent (sign of a better manufacturer) on unconventional motifs.  Note the lines of decorative ‘mode’ fillings – unusual for this lace. The bobbinlace is well done with some raised work, and the overall design is fairly naturalistic.
