Starting Price: £15.00
Auction ends: September 4, 2016 12:01 AM PDT.
Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: Carrickmacross berthas are rare, perhaps indicating an earlier piece. This one is Carrickmacross applique, with a little bride work along the outer edge. Basically a shamrock design with some kind of linear overlapping flower motif used as dividers – I don’t recognize this.

http://tinyurl.com/hhdk7lc TINY 19th CENTURY DELICATE LINEN BOBBIN LACE HANDKERCHIEF
Size: ~8″ square
Starting Price: £4.50
Auction ends: September 4, 2016 12:27 PM PDT.
Offered by: Ebay seller vanye90, United Kingdom
Comments: A small Belgian Point de Fée handkerchief. This is a lace that derives from early Binche patterns.  Note the many square tallies, the straight edges, and rather abstract design.  The technique is excellent, but the join at the bottom looks clumsy.  There are a number of modern pattern books for this type of lace, which is considered one of the most difficult that today’s lacemakers can attempt.
Provenance: None cited.
Date: 4th quarter 19th c.
Condition:
Modifications: None.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Localized brown spotting in the center cloth.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

http://tinyurl.com/hmtwdbf 2 Pieces Of Rare French Antique Handmade Silver Metallic Lace c 1600-1700
Size: 35″ x 4″, 14″ x 4″
Starting Price: $274.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: September 4, 2016 2:27 PM PDT.
Offered by: Ebay seller soniasantiqueandvintagetextiles, Seabrook, New Hampshire, United States
Comments: Two pieces of the same metallic lace, silver threads wrapped on a silk core.  No flat strips evident.  This is a very typical design, could have been made in France or Spain.  The techniques used in this lace are found consistently in most metallic laces and change little over the year.  Very difficult to date, but given the wear and the perhaps original yellow backing fabric, I’ll guess 18th c.
There are very good modern metallic laces being made using many of the old patterns.
Provenance: Purchased at a French auction house 30 years ago.
Date: perhaps 18th c.
Condition:
Modifications: Cut on ends, mounted on silk fabrics.
Damage: Some of the threads are worn through to the silk core.
Soilage: Tarnished.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Comments: A flounce of Brussels Duchesse – no raised work in the Point de Gaze inserts.

Auction ends: September 6, 2016 7:00 AM PDT.
Offered by: Ebay seller lois437, West Bloomfield, Michigan, United States
Comments: A small collar of Burano needlelace.  Conventional floral design with simple fillings. Small collars like this are unusual – smaller pieces usually tend to be round used for table linens. But what is really unusual about this piece is that the cordonnet is buttonholed over. Normally it is just overcast on. It would be worth getting this one under the microscope.
