Sold by the yard and will cut continuous to order up to 5 yards, this is a antique French twist trim c. 1910 and is unused and freshly removed from its original factory packaging as shown in the pictures. Your yardage will be cut from the hank which is not included. This is amazing top quality ornamental "thread" or "trim" which had/has many used from jewel craft, vestment pieces, embroidery work, doll dress costuming etc.

There's a cotton core thread that is yellow/orange in color and there's a twisted gold metal tightly spun around the cotton core. See close up. Too thick to use on machine plus it's too old and is for hand projects only. Measures about 1 mm or about 1/16". This is really in the trim category rather than thread category but its a cross over product as it was likely used for embroidery projects more than anything.

I have a large selection of rare French metallic vestment threads and trims, please mark me in your favorites so you can see them as I list them.

Sorry, I no longer accept rush orders, overnight shipping or expedited shipping, no matter the extra cost. Thank you for understanding.
My handling time is about 3 to 5 business days, excluding holidays and weekends. Once payment is received and cleared, please allow at least 7 to 10 days for arrival of your package. My handling time is 3 to 5 business days and domestic shipping is usually another 3 to 5 days additional.
International shipping could take up to 3 to 6 weeks depending on handling and customs of your country. Please Note: International buyers are responsible for paying any import, customs or VAT fees at the time of delivery. These are fees charged and collected by agencies within your country and are not including in the shipping and handling charges.

My shipping rates are based on weight and the quantity of units (yards) sold. Each yard is a unit and because of Etsy's fee schedule, as a seller I am charged for each unit (each yard) sold so if you purchase several yards in one order, each yard will carry an extra .20 to .30 cent cost which covers fees, packaging and handling expenses which is a standard practice with all companies.

Additional return information
Thank you for shopping with me. Due to the nature of the items that I sell, returns can't be accepted so please take careful measurement and careful consideration of the color selection for your project before buying. When I sell vintage ribbon, the yardage is cut, handled, mailed, handled again by the customer and therefore cannot be resold which is why I don't accept returns on cut ribbons or velvets. You would not wish to purchase a piece of velvet that has been used, handled and returned. Thank you for understanding.

Additional policies

All CA buyers must pay sales tax on their purchases. Sorry, my bookkeeping is not set up to deal with CA resale certificates. It's my understanding you can request a credit back on the sales tax you pay for exempt purchases when you file your return. Please confirm with your accountant.
