This high quality hand made antique French tassel dates to the opulent Belle Epoque period in France, corresponding with the Edwardian era in the United States, c. 1900 - 1915.

The tassel is constructed of a multiple twisted strand silver metallic find cord loop hanger, attached to a silver metal bullion wire wrapped wood head, with apx. 30 very long twisted silver bullion strands forming the tassel body.

This is a well made, high quality period embellishment.  The tassel remains in good antique estate condition, with some small kinks to the long bullion strands commensurate with age and gentle use.  The silver has aged subtly over the past 100 years, taking on a richer, slightly darker patina, somewhat more pronounced near the ends of the tassel.  Please examine the images above for detailed, magnified views.  Structurally the tassel remains very sound, so if some subtle signs of previous life and love do not overly bother you, this tassel is ready to be used and enjoyed for another hundred years.

Authentic Victorian and Edwardian metallic trims are becoming harder to find, especially high quality French examples such as this hand made garniture tassel.  If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this French metallic embellishment is perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, pillows, soft furnishings, keys, lighting, interior design, period restorations and other projects.
