You are looking at a large & ornate antique French gold metallic tassel, which features twisted strands at the bottom, with the upper half covered in metallic mesh with strands of metallic “balls”. It is stunning. The top has a loop for hanging.
The condition is excellent, with some missing metallic balls at the ends, but it’s difficult to tell since it’s quite full. I took the photo with this area spread out so you can see it. When hanging flat, it's hard to tell.
It measures approximately 8 ½” long, not including the 1 ½” top loop.
You will love this gorgeous French metallic tassel; it’s large & ornate.
