This fabulous trim is heavy, thick and old. It measures 3 yards 2 inches long and is 1 inch wide. The condition is very good with a warm patina. I am uncertain of the origin, but I believe it to be of the Ottoman period. There is a blue cotton backing on the back which is lifting in some areas, but otherwise all is fine. The design appears to be tiny metal coils sewn into petals to form the flowers. I have owned this for over 10 years and have been holding on to it just because of the uniqueness. It does not appear to be used, but with an item of this type and age it may have had a previous life. It is very rich, not a bright as it appears in some of the photos and quite opulent. This photos with the pale blue background are accurate.
Please email with any questions. Thank you.
