A divine antique / vintage gold metallic lame French ribbon dating to the later 19th Victorian, or early 20th century Belle Epoque to Art Deco era.
This long unused length of period passementerie ribbon trim is very soft, fluid and quite liquid in texture, with wonderful luster and sheen.  It contains a high metal content, mixed with what appears to be a fine dark cotton weft, yet  due to the the very fine metallic thread and manner of weaving the ribbon is very supple and pliable, allowing it to be easily gathered, but may kink with a sharp fold.
The color was quite difficult to capture accurately, and on my monitor at least, appears best depicted in the second image, as the first is just slightly more yellow than the actual true rich, warm, bronzy gold lame.  Ribbon back is just slightly darker than the front, with somewhat less luster. Perfect for ribbonwork flowers or other projects requiring authentic period trims.
This is very high quality ribbon, with finely finished edges running the length; unfinished and slightly frayed ends on the two short sides.
The ribbon is in very nice unused antique/vintage estate condition, with consistent color, free of fading, stains, spots, or discoloration, and only a few tiny slubs, minor picks/pulls in the very fine mesh.  A gentle tug and pull test confirms the ribbon remains quite strong and sturdy.  It does not appear to have oxidized in color, or tarnished, as many antique gold metallic textiles do, rather I believe it appears very much as it did when made, 100 or so years ago.

A truly divine confection of antique metallic ribbon heaven, close to three yards in length;  perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, furnishings, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects, dressmakers, milliners, designers, etc.

We have more antique and vintage metallic ribbons, lace, trims and passementerie available on our web site in the Sewing & Notions & Fabric Category.
