A very pretty French Ribbon Work applique from my personal collection. I have decided to downsize my collection due to a house move. This one comes from a collection that I purchased in Paris, the label that was in the box can be seen in the first photo - this is not included in this sale. The flowers and leaves appear to be all made of Silk and are stitched onto a mesh type backing - most of these pieces were constructed like this. This applique would be great for a like minded collector but be equally good for stitching to a dress/hat or craft project. Condition is beautiful and there are no issues that I can see, all the colours are strong and vibrant as the day that this piece was made
Any questions please message me, please see all photo's as these form a big part of the description.
