3i ~ Antique French Gold Metallic Passementerie Trim Yardage

Material:  Gold Metal Metallic Wire, Cotton
Origin:  France
Date:  1880 - 1910
Color:  Rich Old Bronzy Gold
Size:  Length ~ 252 inches = 7 yards
         Width ~ apx 7/8 inch
Quantity:  7 yards currently available, cut to order in one continuous length

This wonderful antique gold metallic trim yardage likely originated in France during the opulent La Belle Epoque period, corresponding with the later Victorian or early Edwardian era in the United States.

7 yards of trim is currently available and being sold by the yard.

When examined with a 10x jewelers loupe we can see it is formed of very fine, rich bronzy gold metallic metal wire wrapped and woven over a black natural fiber (cotton, silk ?) base, creating an intricate, lace type design with attractive depth, dimension, sparkle and shine.  It has high metal content that looks and feels like solid gold wire trim, yet is quite flexible and pliable.

Metallic's are very difficult to photograph accurately and unfortunately neither color or luster shows well in the above photographs.  On our monitors at least, I would say the first image is most realistic, however the true sparkle and sheen of the metallic is not captured well in the photograph.  The second and third images appear much darker than actual, but do show the fine detail of the trim quite well.  Please consider color may be rendered differently on your monitor.

This great antique trim embellishment has never been used, it is NOS; new old stock.  The trim is in exceptionally nice antique estate condition, with rich, even color and patina throughout.  Overall very nice consistent sheen and sparkle, as well.  We carefully examined the entire yardage and found no flaws or problems;   it remains strong, stable and very usable.  The trim has nice body and substance, but is actually quite pliable and can even be loosely gathered or used around corners, etc.

Authentic 19th century metallic trims are becoming harder to find, especially high quality French examples, with continuous long lengths of yardage such as this certainly somewhat rare.

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, soft furnishings, restorations and other projects requiring authentic period trims.

Please Note:  Sold Per Yard - 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 required number of yards, from 2 to 7 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.
