Item details

This lovely old ribbon is a gorgeous deep rust color with a slight gold shimmer throughout. Ribbon edges are wrapped in a patinaed gold thread, giving the ribbon a beautiful slight shimmer. The ribbon is made of a silk blend with metallic throughout, giving it a beautiful old look from yesteryear, very soft and pliable. Almost has a grosgrain look to it.
Ribbon measures a very narrow 5/16" wide, or just over 1/8". PERFECT for DOLLS. Please do supersize photos for details.
Ribbon is in beautiful unused condition for its age, taken off its original card. Shows slight patina to the metallic, common for a trim of this age and possible occasional slight fading with the occasional pin prick - ribbon is much more beautiful in person with the gorgeous shimmer - delivering a beauty that is only found in ribbons of long ago.
This listing is for ONE YARD with more yardage available at the time of this listing.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions - more than happy to answer.

    Extremely tiny, I thought it would be a lot wider than it was. Must have missed the specs...

Shipping to
Zip or postal code

All items are shipped USPS First Class mail or USPS First Class International Mail. I find this to be most economical for my rural location. If wishing for items to be sent Priority or elsewise additional postage would be charged at buyers expense.
I usually ship items out Monday through Friday within two days of purchase. Often times items purchased on Friday will not be mailed out until the following Monday as I do not usually ship on Saturdays.
I find items generally takes 2-4 days to reach most US residents from my central location. International mail often arrives within 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. However on very rare occasion International Parcel has taken over a month, which is unfortunately out of my control. Please do keep this in mind when purchasing. But this is the rare occasion, however thought it helpful to mention. Insurance is always available at buyers expense.


Accepted forms of payment are Paypal (preferred); money orders; and personal checks (US residents only). In the case of personal check items will be held until check clears. Payments are expected within 3 days of purchase unless prior arrangements have been set up.
I gladly reserve items for 24 hours only.

Returns & exchanges

Do to the rarity of most trims in my shop once items are cut to order they are NOT RETURNABLE or REFUNDABLE unless described incorrectly - please consider this before purchasing and contact me with any questions you may have. You will find that this is common for old trims anywhere you look. It is very important to me, however, that my customers be happy with their purchase - if the items is misrepresented in any way we definitely can work for a resolution - HOWEVER contact me before purchasing. If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me to work things out. Many items are rare and irreplaceable. Please do let me know if you'd like insurance added to your package for an additional charge. I try to charge only the lowest shipping.

Additional policies

If wishing for more of an item many times I may have more stashed away in my treasures. Please don't hesitate to ask for more. I do not sell wholesale, as my items are vintage or antique - so therefore very limited or are the only one available.
I gladly accept custom orders.
Customer satisfaction is a top priority with me. If dissatisfied in any way DON'T hesitate to let me know. I want you to be as tickled with your purchase as I am with you shopping with me.
