Woven initial marquette ribbon presented in a little antique drawer-style box. Boxes say "une grosse" which means there are twelve dozen initials in the box. (I estimate the length of the ribbon to be approximately 4 yards). The ribbon is a rare 1/2-inch wide. Just one set of initials hand sewn to a linen towel makes a contemporary antique.
Regarding the color "rouge andrinople:" Andrinople refers to a region of Turkey, and is a naturally dyed cotton, most often red.
If the precise initial is important to you, I have the following five boxes available: JN, NR, OF, QA, TN I will be happy to send you a photo of any of the above boxes.
Price is for one box of antique wide initial ribbon.
