Rare 19th C. French Napoleonic Handmade Gold Bouillon with Beads Passemeterie
Thank you Suzanne,
Fabulous...this is the only word one can use to describe this exquisite antique French Napoleonic Gold Bouillon Metallic Passementerie...
Hand Made of silk and gold braids with twisted yarns enhanced with vividly colored beads of red, blue, green, yellow and white.... all fashioned into a beautiful bird and butterfly, with multiple silk flowers and vines,..truly a Work of Art. This is a superb French treasure one would view in a Museum, for it is 19th century Napoleonic and made of gold bullion threads.
The uses for this incredible antique are many ... sew it on to a velvet or silk pillow, .or preserve it's beauty and have it professionally set into a beautiful silk or velvet lined shadow box, so all can admire it's beauty for generations to come.
Of Museum quality ..the richness of antique spun gold with extraordinary bead work, the Grandeur of Napoleons France.
Condition; Mint as it has never been used. Size: approx . 9" x 7" overall
the Bird measures 5 3/4",
the Butterfly measures 1 1/4".
