Color:  Ombre ~ Copper, Rust, Yellow, Green Blue, & Bronzy Gold Metallic
Size:  Length ~ 22 yards available

Substantial yardage of excellent condition antique trims are rather scarce, so we are pleased to offer this fine antique / vintage ombre ruche ribbon and metallic passementerie embellishment, which likely originated in France, c. 1890 - 1920’s; La Belle Epoque - Flapper eras.  It remains unused, in excellent condition, on the original heavy card stock.
In the upper portion of the trim a lovely textured copper colored silk ribbon is woven through fine gold and black metallic braid.   Below this, in the middle area of the trim, is an attractive ombre ruched ribbon, incorporating warm shades of copper and rust, highlighted with yellow, blue and green.  The lower scalloped portion of the trim features a bronzy gold, very finely woven, lacy metallic braid.   The combination of colors, patterns and textures creates a very aesthetically pleasing, authentic period trim.
Unfortunately the same attributes that make this trim so interesting (colors, patterns, textures) also made it exceptionally hard to photograph and I was not entirely successful in capturing these unique qualities.  The actual true colors and shades are brighter, richer and much more vibrant than shown in the above images and the metallic, while a rich bronzy gold, is not as dark as shown and it has also significant sparkle, which is not apparent in the images at all.   Please consider that colors vary on individual monitors, but on my monitor the last close up image, where the trim is shown on a white background, is the closest to actual color that I was able to achieve, although as mentioned the metallic still does not sparkle.
If the images and my detailed description are not sufficient and you would like a see a sample, please email via my Contact Link, include your mailing address and I will send a small piece of trim for your review via USPS First Class mail.

The trim is in extremely nice antique estate condition.  It is very high quality new old stock and has never been used;  it remains wrapped on the original old gray heavy stock cardboard, however since the trim is being sold by the yard, unless you purchase the entire available yardage your trim will not include the card stock.  The silk ribbon and ombre ruched ribbon appear strong and stable, with rich, consistent color throughout.   The metallic braid appears equally nice, with wonderful, sparkly, rich antique bronzy gold patina.  Obviously well cared for and well stored, it remains in strong, usable condition.
NOTE:  I carefully examined the entire yardage and found only one small four inch section where the ruche ribbon was inexplicably missing.  If this area is present in a length of requested yardage I will either cut around it and send two lengths, (versus one continuous) or I will leave intact, but not include that area (plus several inches on each side to allow for piecing) in the measurement.

If you collect antique and vintage ribbons and passementerie trims this unused NOS French silk metallic embellishment is perfect for clothes, millinery, boudoir vanity items, French Fashion & Bebe doll dressing and other project / designer uses.  See our Sewing, Notions and Fabrics category for more antique and vintage trims, lace and other interesting passementerie embellishments.
