Tiny Antique Victorian Passementerie Silk Bobbles, Buttons ? ~ Dolls
Tiny Antique Victorian Passementerie Silk Bobbles, Buttons ? ~ Dolls

Material:  Silk thread covered bead (wood?)
Size:  apx. 8 - 8 & 1/2 mm
Color:  Bronze, Brown, Mahogany
Quantity:  1 set of 13 bobbles

A very charming group of little handmade antique silk covered passementerie bobbles, likely dating to the Victorian era.
These were acquired with the other tiny silk velvet buttons and mini frog closures that we also currently have available and they remain exactly as found.  I am not sure if these were intended to be used as buttons, bobble trim on tassels, purses, etc., or in some other passementerie use on clothing and textiles.
The bobbles are really tiny, measuring only about 8 mm and while the silk is similar in color, there is an attractive and aesthetically pleasing subtle variation as you can hopefully detect in the above images, from a rich mahogany, to a bronzy hue, to a slightly more golden brown.
They are in very nice antique estate condition.  Although there may be a few loose threads here and there on a few, I believe this is just from storage, as they really do not appear to have ever been used.
While the bobbles can be attached in various ways, from just a thread through one end if you wish to used them as buttons for example, I believe that they have a hollow center like a bead, so they could easily be attached in that fashion and incorporated into decorations on tassels or doll purses, fans, even earrings, or added to other passementerie, etc.
Hard to find in this very small, diminutive size and unused condition as well.  The bobbles would make an interesting embellishing for vintage clothing, accessories, small accents, miniature applications and French Fashion / Bebe doll dressing.
See our other available items in this category for more antique miniature buttons and passementerie, as well as other trims, laces and ribbons.
