Divine antique or very early vintage ombre ribbon passementerie trim, likely French
in origin and found unused on the original roll with paper separating wraps, c. Edwardian
era 1910 - Flapper period 1920s. Sold in one yard increments.
This high quality, finely woven ribbon features a wonderful color palette of pale
pink, rose, magenta and red, accented with a narrow metallic edge trim.
It is double sided ribbon, so both sides appear virtually the same. Perfect for
all kinds of applications from clothing, millinery, crafting, sewing, needlework
and ribbon work such as ribbon roses, as well as for doll dressing, etc.
The vintage ribbon is in exceptionally nice estate condition. The entire length
was carefully removed from the roll and inspected, with no condition or appearance

standard "tug and pull" test. Color is consistent. A burn test indicated silk,
possibly with some rayon; fast to burn, curls, leaving a fine dark ash residue that
crumbles easily into a slightly gritty ash ~ leads me to lean more toward silk than
