Divine Long, Wide Antique Watered Damask Roses Silk Ribbon Sash, Yardage

Material:  Watered Damask Silk

Size:  Length ~ 103 inches = 2 yards & 31 inches,  Width ~ 6 & 3/4 inches

Quantity:  1

I must say this is one of my favorite ribbons ~ a divine antique watered silk sash, likely French and dating to the latter Victorian or earlier Edwardian eras.

The ribbon is a harder to find period example featuring watered or warp effect roses, as well as beautiful damask roses.

Colors are rich, vibrant tones; red, pink, burgundy, lilac, purple, celery, forest green and yellow, with tiny touches of black highlights on a cream ground.

Both ends are finished with a hand done hem, so I believe this may have been intended as a belt sash, or scarf.

Additionally, there is one nicely finished seam where two pieces were joined together, at apx. one yard from end.  I did not even realize there was a seam until I had examined the textile several times, so it is not easily detectable.  Shown in last image above.

This antique sash is in very nice estate condition.  Due to the nature of antique silk I examined the length very carefully and found just some slight, very minor signs of age and a couple of tiny pin holes near one end. (the one yard pc.) Obviously stored well and protected from sun and moisture, the silk is strong and stable.  Colors remain rich and vibrant, with no fading.  It is clean and free of stains, moisture spotting, rust, etc.

Due to the brocaded roses reflecting the light in unusual ways this ribbon was difficult to photograph.  In the first image, taken in direct light, the colors appear somewhat lighter than actual and the middle two images slightly darker.  The last two, lower right and left images reflect the rich colors quite accurately.

This very fine and rather rare, long, wide damask patterned watered roses silk ribbon sash would make a high quality addition to an antique textile, ribbon or vintage clothes collection.
We have more ribbons and passementerie trims currently listed in this category.  Additionally, we have a very large collection of antique and vintage ribbons, trims, lace and fabric, plus other sewing related items that we will be adding to our website as quickly as possible.
