Vintage French Silk Rayon & Velvet Floral Applique/Embellishment
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
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.
AGE: The silk rayon dates to C.1950 as does the velvet ribbon.
ITEM: An applique with a base of lavender velvet ribbon and on top, 2 ribbon florals of silk rayon ombre ribbon - also lavender - along with 2 buds (with white pips).
CONDITION: Excellent - there is a true look of "vintage" to the piece. Completely hand sewn with no glue in sight HOWEVER the piece should not be applied to clothing that is washed - the velvet would not hold up too well.
SIZE: Approx 2-3/8" x 2-3/8". Height is about 1" - definitely a very POUFFY piece of ribbon work.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to be applied to anything!
