Offered by: Ebay seller garden*hill, Reading, United Kingdom
Comments: A triangular shawl of Honiton applique on machine net.  The motifs are a bit more advanced than snails/slugs, large massed floral spray in the lower center. Wider border of flowers around the lower edge, narrower at the top, and small sprigs are used in the ground. This triangular form for Honiton applique is a bit unusual.

Comments: A handkerchief with a tape lace border, perhaps Russian Yelets.  I don’t think it’s Idria or Italian.  There’s a lace museum in Yelets http://tinyurl.com/p9ouv5t. Recent photos of this lace look more like Vologda, but I think the more traditional form is this narrow, dense tape.

Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, New York, United States
Comments: A 19th c Gros Point copy.  The thread looks linen.  Very hard to tell where this might have been made – Italy, France, Belgium, Ireland.  Someday I’ll write a book on the subject.  It does have some interesting decoration in the clothwork, and I like the heavy round rings in the middle of the brides. That kind of seems like a Belgian technique.
Provenance: None cited.

Condition:
Modifications: Can’t see the ends to tell if they are cut, but I assume so.
Damage: Seller cites a few openings.
Soilage: Looks clean.

Comments: Another 19th c Gros Point copy. This one has very fine thread, good decorative filings and a lot of fillings that look a little ‘Point de Gaze’ in technique.  So I’m guessing Belgian. However the cordonnets are tightly buttonholed, which might mean Austria.

Auction ends: November 10, 2015 7:15 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller things*most*delightful, Sacramento, California, United States
Comments: A Point de Gaze handkerchief, no raised work.  The striped pattern is occasionally seen in this lace, and note the single looped picots around the outer edge. The design is quite unusual, even to the bellflowers anchoring the rest of the pattern. In pieces like this there is often an emphasis on decorative ‘mode’ fillings, seen here in the corners. The little 4-petaled buds in the strips are quite unusual.

Auction ends: November 10, 2015 7:15 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller dollyslace, Manchester, United Kingdom
Comments: A Brussels bobbin and needlelace oval bridal veil applique on machine net.  The roses are Point de Gaze with raised petals (nicely done with diamond widows in the petals), and elaborate center fillings. There is one major flower spray in the train area, with a floral border, wider at the back and narrower at the front.  Small flower sprays and dots decorate the main tulle area.
I’m not wild about the treatment of the pointed leaves – they just look tied off at the points with a little fluffy end of the gimp – and frankly, a little ‘Princesse’. But I think they are all handmade.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  ~1900.
Condition:
Modifications: None.
Damage: Seller cites 2 minor pinholes, one small and one tiny repair.
Soilage: Seller cites “antique ivory’ color.  One small age mark.

Auction ends: November 11, 2015 11:44 AM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller hedgehogpear, BN8, United Kingdom
Comments: A Brussels bobbinlace with bride ground, about 1730. This is not Brabant style, but has considerable sophistication and technical excellence. It looks cut at the top, and there appears to be separate piece of slightly darker color joined along the bottom third. There is also a separate piece tacked on both ends. All these appear to have come from different original pieces. Quiet an interesting study for an assembled piece.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  ~1730
Condition:

Damage: Fraying and broken brides – severity depends on which section you are looking at.

Starting Price: £49.00
Auction ends: November 11, 2015 12:40 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller lacemerchant, Whiting, Indiana, United States
Comments: A pair of round hole Valenciennes lappets with matching capback frill, although as in similar sets, the frill is not attached.  Which makes this set a rare survivor.  The delicate thin design is sometimes known as Valenciennes Anglaise, probably a marketing name. It is quite a distinct style, often seen in narrow edgings.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  late 18th c.
Condition:
Modifications: Edging cut both ends and secured, engrelure added. I have a feeling the picoted edge is a later addition.  The lappets look in original condition, although it would help if there were a closeup of the upper ends.
Damage: Lappets a little frayed along the edges. Occasional very minor pinhole and pulls in the mesh.
Soilage: Seller cites ivory color. There appear to be a few small red spots in the edging.
Finish:  Vertical fold creases in the edging, creases throughout the lappets.

Comments: Belgian Point de Gaze long border, no raised work. There’s a short repeat of three asymmetric leaves with two flowers below, then a more vertical element with hanging leaves (with and 8-petaled decorative ‘mode’). Some heavy rings in flower centers. And interesting piece with a rather atypical design, but well suited for ruffling.
Provenance: None cited.

Auction ends: November 11, 2015 6:30 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller rosietoesmac, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: I especially wanted to review this narrow round-hole Valenciennes edge because of the similarity in design to the lappet/frill set above. This simple lace is a favorite of mine, especially when it is made in very fine thread, and you usually find it with quite a straight edge.  Similar patterns are also made with the square mesh, indicating that the style survived well into the 19th c.

Comments: A semi-circular Chantilly hat veil. Fairly elaborate with a dense pattern of esprits in the ground, and note the underline of flowers just below the top edge. Quite a effective as well as practical design for an item like this. Hard to tell if it is French or Belgian – I’m guessing France.

Starting Price: $45.00
Auction ends: November 11, 2015 6:39 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller rosietoesmac, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Comments: A narrow scarf of Point d’Angleterre – meaning a pieced bobbinlace with a Point de Gaze ground. The ends do contain a more traditional Point de Gaze insert – no raised work. There is a little raised work on halfstitch background in some of the strapwork. This type of lace often has a more sophisticated design than related Duchesse, and this example has a very nice presence.

Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, New York, United States
Comments: A lappet set of Mechlin, Louis XV design with fond de glace.  It has seen better days, but is an excellent example of this style.  The motifs are a little blocky, typical of Mechlin of this period.  Note the quatrafoil fillings in some areas.  Seller is correct, it’s finer than it looks in the photos.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  mid 18th c.
Condition:

Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: November 12, 2015 2:12 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, New York, United States
Comments: A Punto in Aria border with deep scallops, with some Genoese bobbinlace.  One thing to me that argues for an early date is the framework of the piece – the heavy horizontal lines which divide the three sections in the top part. These appear to be woven braids, which is a technique you see in early Punto in Aria.  It gives the impression of the original cutwork cloth used in Reticella, but is more flexible. It appears to be used in the lower scallops also. The photos are a little fuzzy in this area, but I’m pretty sure the outside edge of the scallops is Genoese bobbinlace – note the woven leaves.
It is always difficult to date something like this, and I wish there were more closeups. But provisionally I’ll call it early.  There are a few things that bother me, like how the scalloped border doesn’t really match the upper border, and isn’t really aligned with the main design.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  after 1600
Condition:
Modifications: Cut one end, can’t see the other end.
Damage: Seller cites a few openings near one end, and if that’s all, it is unusual for an early piece. Might be a warning sign.

Starting Price: $45.00 with reserve
Auction ends: November 12, 2015 2:54 PM PST
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, New York, United States
Comments: A Flemish Pottenkant insertion which looks more in the Mechlin technique with an elaborate snowflake-variation ground. I could probably track it down but my entire library is in boxes in a new storage facility, and it’s getting late.  The symmetric ‘flowerpot’ design, the straight edges of the piece, are enough to put it in the pottenkant style class, but I think the piece is being shown upside down since the picoted border is at the top.  I’m more inclined to put it in the Mechlin category.
Provenance: None cited.
Date:  1st half 1700’s.
Condition:
Modifications: Can’t see the ends to tell if they are cut.  Piece is sewn to tissue.  Straight top edge treatment is a bit confusing.

Comments: A rectangular shawl of Brussels Duchesse. Double raised petal roses in the Point de Gaze inserts, with diamond windows in the petals. Great photos of the back of the roses showing a little known technique of forming a base for the raised petals. Good rows of decorative ‘mode’ fillings, although not much variation.

    The Mechlin loos good, but it may go too high, however, it looks like there is some serious damage which may make it possible. Tried to skype you today, no reply, just as well as I came home with a filthy cold and I am coughing all the time. so will try again tomorrow.

    Love

    Alex
