2L ~ Antique / Earlier Vintage Fancy Silver Metallic Passementerie Trim, Edwardian

Color:  Silver wire, black base
Size:  Length ~ 102 inches = 2 yards & 30 inches, = 2.83 yards

This wonderful antique French metallic trim dates to the later Victorian or Edwardian era, c. 1890s - 1920.

It is almost three yards in length and formed of very fine silver metal / metallic wire, wrapped and woven / braided over a black natural fiber (cotton, silk ?) base, creating an intricate, lace type design with attractive depth, dimension, sparkle and shine.

The trim is very high quality NOS, new old stock, and has never been used.  It is in extremely nice antique estate condition.  We carefully examined the entire yardage and it remains sturdy, stable and very usable. The trim retains rich, even silver color throughout, in a slightly darker shade of silver gray we will call gun metal, that appears to be accurately shown in the second image above, at least on our monitors.  Please remember however, that individual monitors may display colors slightly different than mine.   Overall very nice subtle sheen and sparkle.  Due to a high metal content the trim does have body, but it is not overly stiff, or hard.  It is actually quite pliable and can be bent to form a corner, for example.

Authentic Victorian and Edwardian metallic trims are becoming harder to find, especially high quality French examples.  If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this unused NOS French metallic embellishment is perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects.
