C.1890 FRENCH Variegated Silk Ribbon Floral Spray Applique
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From France, here's an antique variegated silk ribbon (possibly silk rayon) floral spray applique. The entire spray is formed of hand rolled/hand made ribbon flowers and leaves - the florals in tones of burnt orange, olive green and umber with the leaves a lovely olive striped with gold thread. The body of the spray is wrapped in floss.
CONDITION: Very nice with the look of "OLD" we all want in vintage silk ribbon work appliques. The centers of the larger florals are a bit aged - not easily seen as the ribbon covers most of the "bead-like" centers.
FABRIC CONTENT: Variegated silk ribbon, silk ombre ribbon, cotton floss.
SIZE: 5" long (tip of leaf to bottom of stem) x 3-1/4" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: This is the type of applique you see only on the Internet photo sites - and each time you look, you see a SOLD sign. They just don't come along that often!
