Color:  gold
Size:  Width ~ 1/2 inch
         Length ~ available per yard  
Origin:  France, Germany
Age:  1930s - 40s
Quantity:  apx. 20 yards currently available;

Very nice quality earlier vintage woven gold metallic lame ribbon trim embellishment, dating to apx. 1930s - 40s.
This trim was purchased from the estate of a lifelong collector who specialized in only the very best high quality trims, ribbons and other textiles.
It remains unused on the original heavy cardboard mercantile or millinery display card,
however unless you purchase the entire available yardage your trim will not include the card stock.
While country of origin is not indicated we know that this type of trim was manufactured during the period in several different European locations, with the best quality examples originating in France, Germany, and Czechoslovakia, as well as Switzerland.
Due to the quality of this ribbon, which has a tight, even weave and smoothly woven edges, it is very likely French or German in origin.
The trim is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition, as was everything purchased from this estate;  all found in immaculate condition, for the most part unused regardless the age, and perfectly stored to preserve the state.
This metallic ribbon is quite supple and pliable and can be bent, but will crease if folded tightly, due to metal content.  The color is a rich mellow gold, actually a little less bright than in the first image above, with the second image rendering a slightly darker and more mellow old gold hue that appears more accurate on our monitors at least, but please remember that different monitor represent colors diversely. The color is consistent throughout, with great sheen and no tarnish or discoloration.   We find no damage or other issues and the ribbon remains strong, sturdy and ready to be used in a multitude of ways/ projects.
A wonderful find of unused amazingly preserved old store stock passementerie;  the 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.

NOTE:  Cut yardage will be shipped on a flat bobbin 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 desired number of yards, from 2 - 20, 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.
