The laces run from lots 391 to 452. Lots of good borders in lots. I’m especially attracted to the following:
Lot 411 17th c flemish border
Lot 417 I think this is a Sedan border, or perhaps Alençon or Argentan
Lot 419 lappets with joining border, Flemish or English with droschel ground.
Lot 429 Black blonde de Caen, seems a little dense for a bonnet veil. Perhaps an abbreviated piece of a rectangular shawl.
Lot 431 Chantilly collar with long lappets.
Lot 433 A very interesting Chantilly motif.
Lot 435 Chantilly diamond shaped mantilla, Ombre shading.
Lot 436 Chantilly rectangular shawl.
If you wish to purchase any of the lace and cannot come to Paris, there are three ways to do so – these notes are from Claude.
Online bidding with Drouot Live:
If you want to bid by yourself you will have to create an account. Then you will be able to follow the sale with a real time viewing of the auction directly from your computer. You can bid by clicking the appropriate bidding price when the auctioneer reaches the lot you are interested in. If you wish to register for the auction please follow the instructions at http://tinyurl.com/zl5beow to create a Drouot Live Account. You must also register for this specific auction before 9:00 AM, March 28th – go to http://tinyurl.com/ycsx9fwn. The view on your computer has a few seconds delay but the auctioneer is used to it and he will wait a few second when somebody is bidding through the net. This works well as long as the internet equipment has no connection troubles.
Otherwise, you can ask to be called when the auctioneer is approaching the particular lot number. A member of the staff will phone you a few minutes before the item will be on sale and you can instruct him to bid on you behalf, in real time. Both of these possibilities are free of charge and will not have any impact to the final hammer price.
You can also submit an Absentee Bid Form (an order bid) and the auction house will execute it by bidding for you behalf until the price has reached your nominated amount. If bidding doesn’t reach this amount, you win the item for the price at which the bidding ceased. If you are the winner, a member of the staff will send you by email your final invoice. We will send your item to the appropriate postal address as soon as we will get your payment.
Buyer fee is 27.6# TTC (23% plus TVA of 20%).
