Fine Antique French Silver Metallic Trim Yardage ~ NOS
Fine Antique French Silver Metallic Trim Yardage ~ NOS
Fine Antique French Silver Metallic Trim Yardage ~ NOS

Material:  Metallic & natural fiber
Color:  Silver & Black
Size:  Length ~ 13 Yards Available
          Width ~ 3/4 inch
Quantity:  SOLD PER YARD & cut to order in 1 continuous piece, as possible

This wonderful antique metallic trim originated in France during the later Victorian or early Edwardian era.  It is formed of very fine silver metallic wrapped and woven/braided over a black natural fiber (cotton, silk ?) base, creating an intricate, lace type design with attractive depth, dimension, sparkle and shine.

The trim is very high quality NOS, new old stock and has never been used;  it remains wrapped on an original old heavy stock cardboard with
Made In France tag, however unless you purchase the entire available yardage your trim will not include the card stock.

It is in extremely nice antique estate condition.  We carefully examined the entire yardage and it remains very sturdy, stable and very usable.  We found only one tiny 1/8 inch area where there was a factory thread flaw. (black thread is kind of clumped)  Other than possibly needing to cut ordered yardage around this one minor cosmetic issue most purchases should arrive in one length, or if an order happens to fall within that section I will add an extra yardage at no cost, to compensate.

The trim retains rich, even color throughout; I noted only very minor, slightly darker patina to the very tips of a few scallops.  Overall nice sheen and sparkle, which unfortunately does not show well in my photographs. The trim does have body but it is not stiff or hard.  It actually is quite pliable and can be bent to form a corner, for example.

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.

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 to 13, and then click the ADD TO CART Button.  The appropriate total for your selected amount of yardage will be calculated and shown on the Invoice.
