Offered by: Ebay seller curated_store, Dublin, Ohio, United States
Comments: A Brussels Duchesse lappet scarf. Note the padding in the raised petal rose at the ends. You see this occasionally. It might be just a way to give more relief to the piece.

Size: 8″ x (38″ and 33.5″)
Starting Price: $395.00
Auction ends: June 26, 2016, 12:31 PM PDT.
Offered by: Ebay seller mithya, New York, United States
Comments: Two short segments of a Brussels Duchesse border, higher end market work. The raised multiple petal roses in the Point de Gaze inserts are quite naturalistic.  The design is quite dense and elegantly arranged florals. Note the straight border at the top, which makes me think it’s a little later in the 19th c.  Irregular unpicoted brides.  There’s the usual raised bobbin work on halfstitch ground, but note how the motifs get smaller as the ‘ribbons’ they are laid on curves around and narrow. This is echoed in the different sizes of the circles surrounding the ribbon.  I especially like masses of small buds, and the elegant raised work in the bell flowers.
Provenance: None cited.
Date: 4th quarter 19th c.
Condition:
Modifications: One end looks like a natural termination, can’t see the other ends. Engrelure added.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Looks clean.
Finish: Light vertical fold creases.
