Who else would create such a beautiful trim, and all by hand? Black "gimp" braid has been twisted and stitched into an elaborate lacy pattern, then dotted with tiny black jet beads. I can't imagine how tedious this handwork must have been. Even more amazing is the condition. This piece looks like it may have never been used. A old piece in this condition is hard to find, especially in such a long, continuous length. Very soft and flexible.
So many possibilities for this! A valuable trim for the collector or costumer. Measures 2 3/4" wide by 91" (about 7 and a half feet) long.
