Divine antique pink silk ribbon passementerie trim, finely woven with floral rosebuds and wild flower bouquet clusters, accented on each edge with silver metallic picot embellishment.

Found on the original roll / spool with protective paper between each layer.  Label indicates Foreign Manufacture, but does not state specific country, however we believe it was very likely made in France, c. 1880s - 1910s, possibly earlier.

Sold in one yard increments.

This high quality new old stock ( NOS ) unused antique ribbon has a subtle sheen and features a charming floral and foliage pattern in a pretty 19th century color palette of pale pink, rose and green.  It is finely woven lampas type jacquard ribbon, with supplementary weft threads on the reverse of the floral motifs, similar to the antique silks of Lyon, France.  (you can see a small portion of the ribbon back in the first image)
This weaving technique creates a slightly raised effect to the floral bouquets, which imparts a pleasing visual aesthetic, to us somewhat resembling hand embroidery.

The  texture is very silky, smooth and quite light, with a slightly crisp feel.  We only have slightly over eight yards of this trim, so we only removed a very tiny piece of the ribbon body to use for a burn test, which did confirm all natural fibers that we believe to be silk.

This ribbon is in extremely nice antique estate condition, having been protected all these years in the layered paper wrap.  We carefully inspected the yardage, with only a few tiny pin holes and apx. 7 loose picot loops noted throughout the entire length.
There is some light patina found intermittently on the metallic picot edging, likely occurring where the ribbon was wrapped closer to the edge of the protective paper.  Please see close up images.
Color of the ribbon body is consistent, rich and vibrant throughout, with no noted fading, or similar issues, appearing strong and stable; passed the standard "tug and pull" test.
The only item of note was found when cutting the ribbon, as the picot edge has a tendency to want to separate, or unravel slightly from the ribbon where cut, which likely occurs on similar types of trims.  We resolved this with a single tiny drop of a clear fray stop product, which is virtually undetectable.  Depending on application user may want to consider a similar product
**** Due to the slight crispness of the ribbon, plus the somewhat firm metallic edging, this trim should probably not be used where severe bends or sharp corners are required, rather it would be better for less stressful applications, with gentle loops and softer corners, etc.

If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this unused NOS embellishment is perfect for clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, ribbonwork, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, pillows, soft furnishings, interior design, period restorations and other similar lower stress projects or applications.

NOTE:  Ribbon sold in one yard increments.  Yardage will be cut to order in one continuous length, as possible, however unless the entire 8 yards is purchased at one time, ribbon will not be sent with original roll, but rather carefully and somewhat loosely wrapped on a flat ribbon bobbin card. ***Also, while it is our policy to be quite generous when measuring yardage, for this particular ribbon we only have exactly 8 yards and 1 inch available, so any cut yardage will, by necessity, be cut very precisely.

Regarding Shipping & Checkout: we can only reflect USPS Priority Shipping Rates through our Cart/Check-out system, however if you wish to make a purchase totaling LESS than $50.00, and the item(s) is small/light weight, like buttons, ribbon, paper, etc., it is possible USPS First Class mail might be slightly less expensive. If you would like a First Class quote, rather than using our standard checkout as described below, please email us via the Contact tab on menu at page top, including the item description, quantity and destination and we will gladly supply a cost for USPS First Class mail, at which time a custom Paypal Invoice can be forwarded upon request.

ORDERING DETAILS:  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 8 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.
