Item details

Princess Marcella Borghese
Christmas Counter Gift Wrap Decoration
15 Miniature Wreaths with Beaded Fruit
Foil 'NOEL' Stickers
Original Box
Circa 1980s

Only $4.13 each!
(Sold as a group only.)

Millinery wreaths made to decorate gift-wrapped packages
at the 'Borghese Christmas Counter'.
Believed to date from the 1980's.

Beautifully made with lacquered variegated ivy leaves,
and fuchsia 'sugared' beaded berries.
The wire stems are wrapped in green floral tape.

This is a full box,
save for one missing wreath.

8 Small Wreaths & 7 Large Wreaths

Not much difference in size.
The small wreaths are more closed at the center,
the large more open.

There are thick metal foil 'NOEL' tags attached with gold string,
one or two loose in the box.
Most still have the peel-off sticker back,
which attached them to the gift wrap.
Very decorative, but not sure the adhesive itself would still be functional.
No need. Tie them to any gift with velvet ribbon.

Overall condition is like-new-never-used.
A few leaves have small cracks,
which is always expected with lacquered-finish millinery leaves.

These are gorgeous!


Wreaths: SMALL 2 1/2" diameter
LARGE 3" diameter

Box: 5 1/4" wide x 2 3/4" deep x 3 1/4" tall

I combine shipping whenever possible, only if it will not compromise the arrival condition of an item. Make note that I almost never ship medium to large artwork or ‘smooshable’ items with anything else as it may cause damage and is often not cost effective.
