C.1890 FRENCH Variegated Silk Ribbon Floral Spray Applique
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From France, much like my other listing, here's an antique variegated silk ribbon floral spray applique. The entire spray is formed of hand rolled/hand made ribbon - the florals in tones of burnt orange, olive green and umber with olive leaves striped with gold thread. The body of the spray is wrapped in floss. In terms of matching the other piece I have - it does, though the florals are in a different order with differing combos of stripes and green.
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, more so than the other spray. Not easily seen as the ribbon covers most of the "bead-like" centers.
FABRIC CONTENT: Silk variegated 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!
