Really pretty vintage crimped 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.

This ribbon is being offered in two different colors, a striped pink, lavender and white, of which the pink has a slightly salmon hue,   OR   a striped brown, cream and white, which is a slightly wider width than the aforementioned pink.  Each ribbon sold by the yard, cut to order in one continuous length, as possible. Purchased yardage will be removed from the original cardboard and metal rolls and shipped at sellers discretion on either a round spool, or a flat ribbon bobbin, depending on quantity ordered and shipping method.

Although occasionally this type of ephemera still surfaces, older examples of crimped paper ribbon are somewhat uncommon to find, and while the brown and cream is certainly attractive, the pink and lavender ribbon is quite divine.  I believe these two spools are slightly older than some of the other Ribbonette ribbon we have listed, as neither spool is impressed/stamped/marked with the patent number that the company began using apx. 1930, indicating these ribbons were likely manufactured prior to the patent application.

This papery fiber novelty ribbon is quite flexible, (likely a cotton base) with a 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, scrapbooks, projects, dolls, etc.  
Condition is excellent, very strong and stable, with only a few impressions to the outer layers of the brown & cream ribbon, due to the very snug protective brown wrapper, (see 1st and 2nd images above) other than this very minor cosmetic issue, no noted problems.

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 desired 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 - 300, also SELECT THE PREFERRED COLOR from the drop down option box and then click the Add To Cart button.  The appropriate total for your selected amount and color of yardage will be calculated and shown on the resulting Invoice.
