Fine Antique Silk Blend Ribbon On Original Roll
Fine Antique Silk Blend Ribbon On Original Roll

Material: Silk & Rayon
Color:  Chartreuse
Type:  Double faced
Size:  Length ~ 58 inches = 1.61 Yards
         Width ~ 3/8 inch
Quantity:  1 continuous length

An original roll of antique / vintage double faced ribbon, with paper in between each layer, made by the J H Kaufmann Ribbon Company.
Dating to the earlier 20th century, Edwardian / Titanic / Flapper era, c. 1900 - 1920s.
Originally the spool held 5 yards of ribbon; presently 1.61 yards remaining.
The ribbon features an interesting subtle tonal check pattern, achieved with alternating matte and lustrous weave.   The color is a rich green hue I would describe as Dark Apple or Chartreuse;  it is pleasing to the eye, without the garishness sometimes associated with similar shades.   On my monitor the color appears very well represented in the above photos, however please consider differences in color display on individual monitors.
The ribbon is in exceptionally nice unused antique estate condition.  It is very good quality with a lustrous sheen and finely woven edges.
I would classify this as a lighter weight, fine opaque ribbon; it is definitely not that thin, sheer, really light weight stuff.   It is soft and silky, with nice body.
A burn test revealed some rayon content, which I believe is blended with a degree of silk as well.
A gentle tug and pull test confirms the ribbon remains quite strong and sturdy.  I see no weak areas, splits, holes or other signs of textile distress.  Carefully examination of the entire length confirms the ribbon presents exceptionally nice with very consistent color, free of fading, spots and stains, etc.  No weakness, shredding, splitting or other problems.
Very nice antique / vintage passementerie double face ribbon trim, perfect embellishment for clothing, costuming, millinery, ribbonwork, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, furnishings, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects, dressmakers, milliners, designers, etc.
