Excellent condition antique trims of substantial yardage are rather scarce, so we are pleased to offer this fine unused antique / vintage ombre double ruched ribbon and metallic passementerie embellishment, which likely originated in France, c. 1890 - 1920’s; later Victorian / La Belle Epoque - Flapper eras.

Offered by the yard.

The ribbon is finely and tightly woven, resulting in a very silky, smooth and quite sheer embellishment, with a subtle sheen.  A burn test confirmed natural fibers we believe to be silk, possibly combined with a smaller amount of rayon.  Featuring a rich ombre color palette of coppery, rust, melon, coral and tangerine hues, the trim is woven with double ruching and gold metallic accents at the both middle and lower edge.

This ribbon is in extremely nice antique estate condition.  It is very high quality new old stock and has never been used.  We examined all the trim and found only two tiny 1/3 - ½ inch sections where the lower metallic accent separated slightly from the trim body, and one minuscule opening/tiny tear near the top edge, which is really quite insignificant for this large amount of yardage.  The trim was obviously well cared for and well stored; it remains in strong, stable, usable condition, with rich, bright, consistent color throughout and great sparkle to the metallic.  Unfortunately the metallic accent appears darker and more bronze than actual in the above images, when it is really lighter and more of a true gold hue, with great sparkle.

Authentic Victorian and Edwardian 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 embellishment is appropriate for special applications such as clothing, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing, ribbon work flowers, rosettes, pillows, soft furnishings, interior design, window coverings, period restorations and other project / designer uses.

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 box below by typing the required number of yards, from 2 to 40 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.
