Very nice earlier unused, NOS new old stock vintage woven gold metallic passementerie trim with a high metal content, dating to apx. 1920s - 40s.

This vintage embellishment is formed of gold cotton or linen thread that is tightly wrapped with fine gold metallic.  These metallic threads were used for both the warp and weft weave, and then interwoven with strands of lametta as well, to form an interesting pattern, with subtle sparkle and sheen.  

While country of origin is not known, this type of trim was manufactured during the period in several different European locations, with the best quality examples originating in France, Germany, and Czechoslovakia.  Due to the quality of this trim, which has a tight, even weave and smoothly woven edges, it is very likely French, or German in origin.

The trim is in exceptionally nice vintage condition, as was everything purchased from this estate of a lifelong collector who specialized in only the very best high quality trims, ribbons and other textiles.  This metallic trim is quite supple and pliable and can be bent to form corners, etc.,  but will crease if folded tightly, due to metal content.  It is virtually the same on both sides, which makes it quite versatile.  The color is a rich mellow old gold, with a subtle sheen accented by the more sparkly lametta.
For some reason metallics, especially gold, are very difficult to photograph accurately and the first two images above, on our monitors at least, render a slightly darker gold hue and with less sheen than actual. The last two images are more accurate, with very clear representation of trim construction, however the trim shown in the background is slightly more accurate for color and sparkle than the close up example in the foreground.  Overall, the color is pretty consistent throughout, with only intermittent and subtle tarnish.  We find no damage or other issues and the trim remains strong, sturdy and ready to be used in a multitude of ways/ projects.  Due to the nature of this woven trim it does fray on the cut ends, so extra yardage will be send to allow for that occurrence.

A wonderful find of unused old passementerie.  The perfect embellishment for clothing, costuming, millinery, boudoir vanity items, doll dressing, furnishings, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects;  dressmakers, milliners, designers, etc.

NOTE:  Ribbon sold in one yard increments.  Yardage will be cut to order in one continuous length, as possible.

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 white QUANTITY box below by typing the required number of yards, from 2 to 4 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.
