A beautiful French Ribbon Work corsage/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 original label can be seen in the first 2 photo's - this is not included in this sale. The flowers and leaves appear to be all made of Metal Silk Ombre - I think is the correct term and these are wired together and the wire is covered in Silk Floss. 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 major issues that I can see for something of such a great age, all the colours are still strong and vibrant.
Any questions please message me, please see all photo's as these form a big part of the description.
