A really pretty wide vintage cotton Ribbonette ribbon, c. 1930s - 40s;  pale pastel green in color, similar to a light celadon.  It is very slightly crimped and the label indicates it is easy to tie, and can be curled.  It does curl, but not very tightly, forming more of a soft curlicue when we tried.

This ribbon is being offered by the yard, cut to order in one continuous length, as possible.  Purchased yardage will be removed from the original cardboard roll 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 hard to find, and this wider width is definitely more uncommon.

This papery cotton fiber novelty ribbon is quite flexible, with a matte appearance and texture, yet it is extremely strong and durable.  Almost impossible to tear and even somewhat difficult to cut with scissors! As the label indicates it definitely will not snap or break when knotted.  Perfect for use as originally intended, utilitarian as well as decorative embellishment, wrap & finish for packages and gift tie, but also great for crafts, card making, scrapbooks, projects, dolls, etc.

Condition is quite nice, very strong and stable, with a small pin hole evident intermittently in first several yards.  We have not unrolled entire spool, but expect the pinholes to disappear as yardage is removed.

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 - 17, 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.
