C.1920 FRENCH Variegated Silk Ribbon Floral Spray Applique/Ribbon Flower Embellishment!

Welcome to GYPSY MADONNA! May I offer.......

AGE: C.1920

ITEM: From France, here's an antique variegated silk (possibly silk rayon) ribbon floral spray applique. The entire spray is formed of hand rolled/hand made ribbon flowers and leaves - the florals in tones of burnt orange, olive green and umber with the leaves a lovely olive striped with gold thread. The body of the spray is wrapped in floss.

CONDITION: Very nice with the look of "OLD" we all want in vintage silk ribbon work appliques. The centers of the larger florals are a bit aged - not easily seen as the ribbon covers most of the "bead-like" centers.

FABRIC CONTENT: Variegated silk ribbon, silk ombre ribbon, cotton floss.

SIZE: 5" long (tip of leaf to bottom of stem) x 3-1/4" wide.

FINAL COMMENTS: This is the type of applique you see only on the Internet photo sites - and each time you look, you see a SOLD sign. They just don't come along that often!



Very simple. Some of my prices are firm, some aren’t. Those that are firm will be clearly marked, those that aren’t will be open to discount. If Buyer is interested in “a more friendly price” please convo me – I’m very approachable! As my father continues to remind me daily, I’m a dealer, not a collector. I’m here to find new homes for everything in my shop.


24 hours only – no exceptions.


…..United States – As mentioned.

…..Overseas – I believe I can ship this item anywhere but please contact me before making a purchase so I can quote the correct postage.


Times are tough, I know. Since selling on the Internet is my livelihood I will do anything to strike a deal – I want to STAY in business! I also want to continue to build my rep as a fair minded dealer who offers really nice items to my customers. I believe that if I do this, my customers will return again and again and again. I love doing what I am doing and want to continue to do so till the day my fingers can no longer type on a keyboard.

Again, if any buyer wants a combo of items, please contact me so I can make the amendments.

Welcome to my shop – may your stay be a pleasant one!

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Additional return information
Not happy? Just doesn't work for you? Just send it back and I will offer a full refund on the purchase price only. Layaway pieces are handled a little differently - usually I apply a 15% restocking fee if the item has been "on hold" for a very long time. Most dealers do "no refunds" on either the deposits or layaway itself. I think this a little harsh as you never know what is going to crop up in the way of an emergency and sometimes a person does have to hold onto their money due to such a situation.

Additional policies

Right now, I don't really accept custom orders but if you e-mail me, and I have the time, I might just be able to accommodate your request!
