This listing is for your CHOICE of one color. There are three colors available. I have numbered them. When buying, order the quantity you want and tell me in the Add a Note window which number(s) you want.
These ribbons are from my mother's stash of treasured supplies. I think she never met a textile she didn't like and want to have. Half the fun was the hunt. They are from a smoke free and pet free home. Mom loved her things are carefully stored them away from odors, pollution and fading sun light.
These are hard to find French silk ribbon with metallic gold edging, made in the 1920s. The color choices are stunning. They are not 100% perfect - there are a few pin holes but overall they are in very good condition. They are yummy.
They are all 1" wide but vary slightly in length. Here is a summary:
1. This one is a purplish color - varying from dark to a soft lavender. There are 37" of this color.
2. This one is a luminous orange - reminds me of Merthiolate ( those of you who are old enough will know what I mean). When you move this one in the light, there is a lot of gold. There is 36" ( 1 yard) of this one. There is 1 & 1/4" long sticky tape residue on one end, where it was anchored to a card.
3. This one is a reddish rose color. There are 34" of this one.
These are in very good, antique condition. There are a few small rough areas, but they are not noticed until looking closely for flaws. Please view all of my pictures as they are a big part of my description. I have tried to accurately describe each color in words as I could not get a true to color photo of any of them. They are so luminous that it distorts the color.
These have many uses. These antique silk ribbons are getting harder to find. Here's your chance to add some to your supply stash.
