DivineAntiques.com - novelty ribbons available

Material:  rayon & acetate
Color:  white ground with red and bluish gray graphics
Style:  flat
Size:  width ~ apx. 1 inch
Age:  1939 - 1940s
Origin:  made in the USA
Maker:  unknown
Quantity:  9 yards available;  Sold Per Yard

A vintage roll / spool of flat patriotic ribbon dating to the WWII era, c. 1939 - 1940s.   Bold red and bluish gray graphics on a white ground, feature all kinds of symbolic images, including the patriotic American eagle, with stars and stripes behind, plus many military scenes showing planes, ships and tanks.

This great novelty 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 (see details below*) 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 wide flat papery tape ephemera are somewhat hard to find, and vintage patriotic spools are really quite uncommon.

This rayon/acetate specialty ribbon is thin, flat and quite flexible, with a matte appearance and smooth, rather papery texture.  Perfect for use as originally intended, utilitarian as well as decorative embellishment, wrap & finish for packages and gifts, but also great for crafts, scrapbooking, card making, projects, dolls, etc.

While the cardboard and metal spool does not indicate manufacturer, the graphics and yardage indicator is very similar to period examples produced by Burlington Mills, a company that made ribbons and trims in the USA and was noted for high quality products.

*To confirm available yardage the entire length of ribbon was removed from the spool.  While un-spooling we found some tiny areas where the paper inserted between each layer was adhering slightly to the ribbon, so liner paper was removed and the yardage was placed on a flat bobbin card, with acid free layers between. The ribbon is in extremely nice vintage estate condition and very strong and stable.  Other than perhaps finding a residual minute remnant of paper intermittently here and there on the ribbon, no issues noted. Visually the colors and graphics remain extremely vibrant and quite clear.

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 - 9, 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.
