Divine antique or very early vintage silk and metallic ruffle edge passementerie trim ribbon, 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.

A high quality, finely woven ribbon in a marvelous soft muted shade of blue / green / gray that is sometimes referred to as duck or robin egg;  a color palette that covers many hues of blue and green from light to dark, with this example being on the lighter side, leaning towards the grey.  The exact shade was difficult to capture accurately and on our monitors the ribbon in the above images appear to have slightly less of the subtle bluish hue than actual, with the last image being closest to the true color.

It is double sided ribbon, so both sides appear virtually the same. Perfect for all kinds of applications from clothing, millinery and sewing, as well as craft items such as ribbon roses and ribbon work, etc.   Later versions of this type of trim were often made of rayon, but this is one of the older all silk examples, with a fine metallic accent just above the lettuce edge.  Wonderful for ribbonwork and similar needlework, as well as doll dressing, etc.

This vintage embellishment is in exceptionally nice estate condition.  The entire length was carefully removed from the roll and inspected, with only a few pinholes found.  Cosmetically, some subtle variation in the color of the fine metallic accent was noted, with some intermittent sections having somewhat more patina than others.  Quite subtle and certainly not unexpected or inappropriate for trim of this type and age.  No other condition or appearance issues noted. The trim is very strong, supple and stable and easily passed the standard "tug and pull" test.  Color is consistent.

If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this unused NOS silk and metallic ruffled embellishment is perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, pillows, soft furnishings, interior design, period restorations and other projects.

NOTE:  Yardage will be cut to order and unless the entire 7 yards is purchased at one time, it will not be sent with the original roll, but rather carefully wrapped on a flat ribbon card.

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 7 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.
