This divine antique 19th century gold metallic passementerie galloon trim likely originated in France during the later reign of Napoleon III.

It is new old stock ( NOS ) and has never been used.  The true rich, warm gold color and luster shows best in image #3.  This trim was well stored and cared for; it appears very much as we expect it did when manufactured 100+ years ago, although due to metallics (especially gold) being extremely difficult to capture accurately in a photograph the trim is not well represented in our images, however we feel buyers will be very well pleased with both condition and appearance.

Originally 19 yards, but 8 yards have sold;  
currently 11 yards of trim available and sold by the yard.

It is formed of very fine gold metal metallic, firmly wrapped over a light colored fiber and twisted with bronze linen, to form the weft threads.  Warp threads are comprised of gold silk and/or linen fibers, which together create a passementerie trim with excellent depth, dimension, sparkle and shine.  This type of embellishment is most often found with straight sides, or one side scalloped, however this example features scalloped edges on both sides, which would have been the most costly version.

The ribbon is woven in a naturalistic aesthetic flower and oak leaf design, which historically is very symbolic and important to many countries and cultures, often signifying strength, power, authority, leadership, bravery and longevity.  Rulers frequently wore oak leaf crowns and the symbol is still used in today's military.

During the period this high quality galon embellishment would likely have been reserved for only the finest applications, such as utilized by the clergy for vestment and ecclesiastical purposes.

This great antique trim has never been used and it remains in exceptionally nice antique estate condition, with bright, consistent, rich warm gold color throughout, showing none of the fading, darkening or verdigris that is often found on this type of antique trim.  Overall excellent sheen and sparkle as well, however this does not show well in my photographs, but is best depicted in image #3.  Image #4 shows the fine linen reverse/back. The trim has nice body and substance; it is not overly stiff or hard, but actually quite pliable and can be folded and bent to form corners, etc.  We carefully examined the entire yardage and it remains extremely sturdy, stable and very usable.

Authentic Victorian and Edwardian 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, pillows, soft furnishings, interior design, window coverings, period restorations and other projects.

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 11 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.
