A beautiful pair of French Ribbon Work appliques from my personal collection. I have decided to downsize my collection due to a house move. These comes from a collection that I purchased in Paris, the original label 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/Silk Ombre - I think is the correct name the Flowers are like little Carnations in a pretty 'Powder Blue' with accompanying 'Forget me Nots' and Greenery and they are attached to a 'Mesh' like backing. These appliques 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. I have placed a Tape Measure in some of the photo's to give a good idea of measurements, the 2 are much the same in size.
Any questions please message me, please see all photo's as these form a big part of the description.
