Fine, Wide Antique Cinnamon Silk Blend Ribbon Yardage On Original Roll

Type:  Double Faced
Color:  Cinnamon
Size:  Length:  78 inches = 2.16 yards

An original roll of unused antique / vintage double faced ribbon, with paper in between each layer.  Dating to the earlier 20th century, Edwardian - Flapper eras.
Label indicates this wide, high quality ribbon was made in Switzerland.
The color is a luscious, rich cinnamon and on my monitor at least, appears very well represented in the photos, however please consider differences in color display on individual monitors.
The ribbon is in exceptionally nice unused antique estate condition.  It is very fine quality with a lustrous sheen and finely woven edges.  Double faced, so both sides are the same.
A burn test revealed some rayon content, which I believe is blended with a lesser degree of silk as well.  The ribbon really feels (and looks) like pure silk, with a very slight linear texture, somewhat similar to Shantung and very soft to the touch, like the softest, finest suede.
I would call this medium weight ribbon.  It is definitely not that thin, sheer, light weight stuff, but rather is quite thick, with substantial body and drape.
A gentle tug and pull test confirms the ribbon remains quite strong and sturdy.  I see no weak areas, splits or other signs of textile distress and only a few tiny pinholes found through entire length.
Carefully examination of the ribbon revealed only one tiny light thread speck (likely something inadvertently woven in when ribbon was made) at apx. 1 & 1/2 yards in, otherwise the color is very consistent and free of fading, spots, stains, etc.

Divine wide antique / vintage passementerie double face ribbon trim, perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, furnishings, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects, dressmakers, milliners, designers, etc.
