Vintage Mid Century French Ribbonwork Applique - Spray of 5 Florals Blue Ombre Pink & Lavender Ribbon
Found with a lot of ribbon supplies here in St. Louis, may I present this small spray that features 5 flowers. The center floral is of lavender silk and satin ribbon, the next pair are French Blue ombre metallic edge ribbon (with glass beads) and the last pale pink pair appear to be silk. The leafy ends again are ombre ribbon though I think it is a a bit more modern.
Condition: Excellent with no glue. The entire piece was handsewn and there is crinoline to the back to hold the stitches.
Size: 2-3/8" long x 3/4" wide at the center.
Final Comments: I don't know if the piece can be washed or not so I am thinking that a pin should be attached to the back so that IF put on a piece of clothing, it can be unpinned before the clothing is cleaned. If not used on clothing, it can be used anywhere else - on a hanky holder, trim for a doll's hat or a lingerie bag. So pretty!
Postage is what it is but I can get a lot of stuff in an envelope!
