This wonderful antique or earlier vintage metal wire metallic trim embellishment dates to the Edwardian period - Flapper era, c. 1910 - 1930.  It was purchased from the living estate of a lifelong collector who specialized in only the very best high quality trims, ribbons and other textiles.
We acquired two identical packages of unused old store stock.  Both remain on the original heavy cardboard mercantile or millinery display card, with string tied outer heavy paper wrap still intact, however unless you purchase the entire available yardage your trim will not include the card stock.
While country of origin is not indicated we know that period trim of this type was manufactured in several different European locations, with the best quality examples originating in France and Germany.
This is definitely very nice quality trim, formed of a combination of silver bullion wire and very fine silver metallic wire wrapped and woven / braided over a cream natural fiber (wool ?) base, creating an intricate design, with attractive depth, dimension, sparkle and shine.
It is in extremely nice antique / vintage estate condition.  It remains very sturdy, stable and usable.  The trim retains rich silver color throughout, with some generalized acquired patina; fairly subtle on one package, but more significant to the other, where it is concentrated mainly near the outside edges of the outermost rows. Please see first image above.  We will use the best package first and note here when beginning on the second lot.  Overall both packages retain nice subtle sheen and sparkle; they do not appear so shiny as to be thought newly made, rather they have the perfect, slightly darker silver gray color, perfect for projects requiring very good condition authentic period embellishment.  The third and fourth close up images render, on my monitor at least, very accurate color representation. Due to the high metal content the trim does have body, but it is not overly stiff or hard.  It is actually quite pliable and can be used for soft corners even, but if folded tightly will crease.
Authentic Victorian and Edwardian metallic trims are becoming harder to find, especially high quality French examples, with continuous long lengths of yardage such as this certainly somewhat rare.
If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this unused NOS French metallic embellishment is perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects.
Please note we also have the identical unused old store sock trim available in a wider, apx. 3/8 inch width, available at this time; see link at lower left side bar.

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 desired number of yards, from 1 - 50, 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.
