A wonderful soft, lustrous vintage ribbon in a rich purple aubergine or eggplant shade, dating to the earlier 20th century Edwardian era, or possibly slightly later.
18 yards originally available, however after several sales we currently have 4+ yards remaining, to be
sold per yard.
The rich dark aubergine color, also called eggplant, appears on my monitor at least, to be well represented in the above photos, especially the first image as the second and third are slightly darker than actual, however please consider differences in color display on individual monitors.
It is a light to medium weight single sided ribbon, with a more matte, very dark eggplant shade on the reverse, that leans toward the more bluish purple hue.  This contrasts nicely with the strong purple aubergine of the front and in my opinion would work beautifully for ribbon rosette flowers and similar ribbonwork or other projects where the back color may show, as this darker, slightly different hue would add depth and interest.
This ribbon is very good quality with rich luster and color, a soft, smooth texture with good body and finely woven, very nicely finished edges.
A burn test indicates some rayon content and due to the type of resulting residue I strongly believe the ribbon is blended with silk, as well.  It certainly feels (and looks) like pure silk.
The ribbon is in very nice unused vintage estate condition.  A gentle tug and pull test confirms the ribbon remains quite strong and sturdy, with no weak areas, splits or other signs of textile distress. Carefully examination of the entire 18 yards of ribbon revealed only the expected intermittent pinholes, with no noted stains, spots, etc.
There is actually more than four yards remaining in one continual length, (which totals apx 5+ yards altogether if I remember correctly) however the yardage
in excess of the four I note available does show a number of pin holes, as well as a pull.  Still strong and useable for projects, but with some small issues as described, so if the final four yards is purchased altogether I will include the additional apx 1+ yard (with the issues mentioned above) in one continual piece at no extra cost.  You will receive all remaining yardage, (a total of apx. 5+ yrds ~ all that I have left) in one continuous length, for the cost of four yards.
Note:  If you notice some slight color variation
to ribbon back in first image, please note that section was removed.
