Material: Lavender & Silk Ribbon
Size: 7 & 1/2 inches
Charming antique lavender wand, tied with fine rich dark pink silk ribbon, c.1900.
The collection of antique wands found here on our web site were purchased from a
French family. Antique wands were made for centuries in France, becoming favored
as ribbonwork projects here in the later 1800 and early 1900's.
Rather amazingly the wand still retains some fragrance, however a drop of natural
lavender oil can be added periodically to refresh the aroma, so the wand can continue
to be used and enjoyed.
It is in very nice antique estate condition. The silk ribbons look very good, free
of distress, stains, rips, tears, etc. The ribbon ends could be pressed if desired.
Originally this wand probably had a bow at the top, however it is no longer present.
This can easily be remedied by inserting similar ribbon through lavender or ribbon
ends and tying desired bow flourish.
Antique ribbon work lavender wands are not easy to find and this example is in really
lovely condition. A charming period addition to milady's vanity, dressing table
