3 American Hand Made CREAM & MAUVE Silk Ribbon Floral Applique/Embellishment/Ribbonwork Rose
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: Late 1980s
HISTORY: Well, when one loves silk ribbon and buys from other people, one simply has to try their hand at making roses to see if the trick can be accomplished! Taking my inspiration from Elsie's Exquisiques, who sold me the silk ribbon back in the 1980s, I decided that I would make ribbon roses. Well, I made a ton of the roses way back when but I never used them in any of my creations (yep, I was a hoarder) - managing to bring them to Missouri with me when I moved from California. I have only JUST unpacked my box containing these treasures and so I offer them now.
ITEM: 3 American hand made, hand rolled, MAUVE & CREAM silk ribbon appliques (single floral) or embellishments. The cream rose with the two pearls is entirely hand sewn while the other cream and mauve roses are glued at the back. The bead rose can be used on clothing but the others cannot.
COLOR COMBO: MAUVE & Cream silk ribbon flowers, mint green leaves.
CONDITION: As fresh as the day they were first made.
SIZE: Approx. 1-1/4" x 3/4" each
FINAL COMMENTS: Again, these are not China made, Japan made appliques that are "flat" when purchased and never "pouff up". They were puffy when made and are puffy puffy now.
