There are a few lace offerings in this auction, lots 88 to 92 and scattered items among the rest of the lots. See especially:
Lot 92, an oval wedding veil of Brussels bobbinlace applique on machine net.
This rest of the lace lots are largely embroidered net, but note lot 90 which has a square of an early Flemish bobbinlace with brides, reassembled, and some interesting scarves (photos not close enough to determine the exact technique).
Lot 325 is an impressive 2-piece gown of Brussels Duchesse with raised petal roses.
