Really neat vintage flat Ribbonette ribbon, or tape.  Used during the period for personal gift and commercial package wrap / tie by  haberdashery shops, general stores, mercantiles and dry goods sellers.  The spool would have been held in a specifically designed countertop cast iron dispenser with attached cutting blade and what we think of as ribbon or tape today, was often then referred to as string.

We have two rolls / spools of this specialty ribbon and it is being offered by the yard, cut to order in one continuous length, as possible.  Yardage will be removed from the original metal roll and shipped at sellers discretion on either a round spool, or a flat ribbon bobbin, depending on quantity ordered and shipping method.

Older examples of this flat paper tape ephemera are somewhat hard to find, and even more unusual is this divine turquoise blue color, which would of course have been extremely popular during the Art Deco era.

This papery fiber novelty ribbon is very thin and flexible, (likely a cotton base) with a smooth matte appearance and texture, yet it is extremely strong and durable.  Perfect for use as originally intended, utilitarian as well as decorative embellishment, wrap & finish for packages and gifts, but also great for crafts, projects, dolls, etc.  For all of you who stamp and scrapbook, ink adheres quite well to this ribbon.

Condition is excellent, very strong and stable, with no noted issues.

Regarding Shipping & Checkout: we can only reflect USPS Priority Shipping Rates through our Cart/Checkout system, however if you wish to make a purchase
totaling LESS than $50.00, and the item(s) is small/light weight, like buttons, ribbon, paper, etc., it is possible USPS First Class mail might be slightly less expensive.  If you would like a First Class quote, rather than using our standard checkout as described below, please email us via the Contact tab on menu at page top, with the item description, quantity and destination and we will gladly supply a cost for USPS First Class mail, at which time a custom Paypal Invoice can be forwarded upon request.
NOTE:  The minimum quantity for purchase is one yard, which is shown in the white Quantity box below, however if you desire a different amount of yardage simply edit the number displayed in the box by typing the required number of yards, from 2 - 1000, and then click the Add To Cart button.  The appropriate total for your selected amount of yardage will be calculated and shown on the resulting Invoice.
