http://tinyurl.com/j285ugn A fine antique Nanduti lace sun lace pina thread shawl 1910s
Size: 58 cm x 194 cm
Starting Price: £92.00
Auction ends: December 11, 2016 9:40 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: A Ñanduti rectangular shawl.  Interesting Sol motifs some of which which appear to be arranged in rows along the length of the piece. Smaller pieces of this quality usually have the palm leaf motif along the edge. But I’ve seen several rectangular shawls which do not, as in this piece. Piña fiber was used pretty exclusively in the Philippines, not Paraguay, and the Ñanduti pieces from South America are cotton.  The sol motifs in this piece are a little more open than typical, but I’m reasonably sure it’s a Paraguayan product.
Provenance: None cited.
Date: ~1950
Condition:
Modifications: None.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Seller says it has been carefully laundered but gives not details on the process. Now ‘snowy white’.
Finish: No obvious creases or wrinkles.

Offered by: Ebay seller linskapet, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway DG6 4UU, United Kingdom
Comments: This is a handmade triangular Chantilly shawl – difficult from the photos to discern the pattern. But someone went to a lot of work to embroidery all the sequins and small beads on. I’m a big fan of these shawls, but not of the embroidery. It could probably be reversed.
Provenance: None cited.

Condition:
Modifications: The sequins are not original.

Provenance: None cited.

Damage: Lace has come away from the sticks at one end. Two broken sticks, also some repairs to the sticks. There are signs that the lace is tied to the sticks, which helps in condition.  Lace itself seems OK and PtdG ground is good from what I can see.

Comments: A border of Brussels bobbin and needlelace applique on machine net. The needlelace is whiter than the bobbinlace.

The bobbinlace is quite delicate with small motifs in vine patterns.  The needlelace design at the bottom is a little different from the rest of the design.

Auction ends: December 13, 2016 11:14 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller halcyonevintage, Woodinville, Washington, United States
Comments: A shawl collar of black silk guipure. I’ll say it is Le Puy given the elaborate ground around the neckline and the use of halfstitch in fillings.  The long narrow woven leaves  and halfstitch scalloped edging are also found in other Le Puy examples.

Auction ends: December 17, 2016 9:43 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller chantillydreams, Bloomington, Indiana, United States
Comments: A rectangular shawl of bobbinlace applique on machine net. I think it’s Belgian, maybe from the Bruges area. Mainly because of the fairly simple motifs (although very nicely arranged), and the bar ground fillings. This would be an unusual piece for a Bloemwerk type of lace.

Date: ~1900
Condition:
Modifications: It is seamed across the middle.
Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Looks clean.
