Pair of C.1900 French Ribbonwork Silk Floral Appliques/Embellishments!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: From France, direct from a very old souvenir pillow cover (depicting the sights of Paris) comes this stunning paid of silk florals! The ribbon material appears to be silk and the coloring is hard to describe, light pink to a darker pink with a an ombre green/light pink center. The floral is large and needs only reworking - perhaps add a leaf or just leave as is and apply to a hat.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. Each embellishment/applique is completely hand sewn of silk ON silk - a portion of which is still visible on the bottom of the floral.
SIZE: Each piece is approximately 2-3/16" x 1-15/16"
FINAL COMMENTS: A genuine piece of French ribbon work to be treasured and remade into something new!
