A divine antique / vintage metallic French silver lame ribbon dating to the early 20th century Belle Epoque / Edwardian / Art Deco era.

This long unused length of period passementerie ribbon trim is very soft and smooth in texture, with wonderful luster and sheen.  It contains a substantial metal content; fine metallic silver stock, mixed with what appears to be a fine light/white cotton weft, resulting in a ribbon with body that is very smooth and fine tactilely, as well as fairly easy to gather, but may kink slightly with sharp fold.

The color was quite difficult to capture accurately, and on our monitors at least, appears best depicted in the third image, as the first two are slightly more yellow than the actual true rich silver lame.  The ribbon back is lighter and less metallic appearing than the front, however it still sparkles and has some 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 only one tiny pinhole and minor edge kink at approximately the one yard mark.  Color is quite consistent, with just a hint of intermittent darkening/slight tarnish on the finely woven edge, on one side only, otherwise free of fading, stains, spots, or discoloration.  A gentle tug and pull test confirms the ribbon remains quite strong and sturdy.

A divine French silver metallic lame ribbon, more than three and a half 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.
