B1258 - 3 Lengths Divine Antique French Silk Serpentine Fringed Passementerie/ Braid
This is a batch of 3 lengths (adding up to 3 metres, 9 ft 10 inches) of divine antique French silk serpentine fringed passementerie trim that dates from the 1880's. It would be perfect for trimming period textiles and would compliment the most opulent of velvets, brocades and silks.
The passementerie is in a delicious shade of raspberry and has gently mellowed over the years to perfection while still maintaining it's château grandeur.
It has been used and there are characteristics of this. There are one or two kinks in it which will straighten out when sewn. There are also 2 areas in the longest length where the tassels have been trimmed during sewing (please see photos).
The lengths measure :- 63 cm (21 inches) + 174 cm (5 ft 8.5 inches) + 63 cm (21 inches) = 3 metres ( 9 ft 10 inches) long x 8.5 cm (3.3 inches) wide. Two of the pieces are still sewn together and we have left them like that.
We also have two lengths of flat passementerie and a piece of edging passementerie that came from the same batch of textile and they are all listed in our other items.
A divine piece of antique passementerie to add a gorgeous château chic touch to a period textile project and another superb brocante find from 'La Belle Étoffe'.
