8 AMERICAN Hand Made CREAM Silk Ribbon Floral Applique/Embellishment/Ribbonwork Roses
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
HISTORY: A very long time ago there was a company called Elsie's Exquisiques. Elsie, a dear lady that no one could help but like, offered all sorts of ribbon and fabric supplies. She travelled to gift shows all over the country selling her wares and I was lucky enough to meet her at the Los Angeles HIA show where I fell in love with old French silk ribbons, appliques and trim. This listing is part of the stash I bought from her in the 1980s.
ITEM: 8 American hand made, hand rolled, CREAM 100% Silk Ribbon appliques (single floral) or embellishments. During the '80s Elsie used local women in her city to make these embellishments. They are all hand sewn, without crinoline, and can be used on lingerie or any project one might think of.
COLOR COMBO: CREAM floral/LIGHT GREEN leaf
CONDITION: As I purchased - perfect! Of course there is the stray thread here or there but nothing one wouldn't find in any hand made piece.
SIZE: Approx. 1" x 3/4"
FINAL COMMENTS: Again, these are not China made, Japan made appliques that are "flat" when purchased and never "pouff up". While this design is slightly flat, it is only because of the way the rose was formed. Hand Made in America!
