Size:  width apx. 3/8 inch, just a smidgen wider
Age:  1920s - 1930

Quantity:  250 yards before crimping, est. apx. 150 yards available of each spool/color;  Sold Per Yard

Two spools of vintage crimped metallic edged Ribbonette ribbon, or tape, found with original protective wrappers still intact.  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 commonly referred to as string.

The ribbon is being offered in two different colors, brown with gold metallic edges  OR  green with gold metallic edges.  Each ribbon sold by the yard, cut to order in one continuous length, as possible. Purchased yardage will be removed from the original metal rolls 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 crimped paper tape ephemera are somewhat hard to find, and the wider ribbons with gold trimmed edges, such as these two rolls, are rather unusual.

This papery fiber novelty ribbon is quite flexible, (likely a cotton base) with a matte appearance/texture and sparkling metallic like edges, 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.

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 - 150, 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.
