Offered by: Ebay seller ogop, Lincoln, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: A probable Belgian needlelace applique on machine net. Given the rather large width and the rolled top edge, this might be cut down from a larger piece.

Auction ends: January 11, 2017 5:39 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller curated_store, Dublin, Ohio, United States
Comments: A runner of Brussels Duchesse. I don’t think the petals in the Point de Gaze inserts are raised, but there is raised work against halfstitch background in the bobbinlace. Both in leaves and the swag-work. This commonly seen in higher quality Duchesse. Most of the Point de Gaze are single roses, except at the ends where there are rows of decorative ‘mode’ fillings with regular PtdG ground.  Unusual to see this quality Duchesse in table linens.
Provenance: None cited.

Damage: Nothing obvious from the photos.
Soilage: Seller cites a light cream color. Also says it has been hand laundered (no details) and lightly pressed.

Starting Price: $750.00
Auction ends: January 11, 2017 10:25 AM PST.
Offered by: Ebay seller ogop, Lincoln, Massachusetts, United States
Comments: A large tablecloth of Cantu bobbinlace. It has two techniques – the typical scrolling vines with 3-headed flowers and hooks, along with inserts of what might be called Point de Milan.  This is usually taken to mean pieced bobbinlace with a needle-made ground. The photos aren’t close enough to tell what kind of ground it has, it might be a bobbin plaited ground.  It is actually nice to see these two technique together, since it can often be difficult to attribute origin to this type of pieced lace.
Provenance: None cited.

Comments: An Irish crochet collar. Irregular picoted brides.  The non-traditional motifs have no raised work, but do have nicely finished edges. Some interesting filling stitches. A lot of square edges in the design, and most clothwork is double crochet. I think the thread might be linen, it has that kind of shine.

Offered by: Ebay seller derbeatle, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Comments: A border of Louis XV style Alençon. The floral design is a little plain, without the typical Louis XV undulations. Might be a little later in style. Good decorative ‘mode’ fillings along the border and in flower centers – these really make the piece.
