These rare antique silk and gold metal French ombre ribbons were used to create the beautiful French ribbon embroideries and rococo flower trims coveted by collectors around the world. Woven with silk, with gold metal thread/cord selvages. Available in the three colors shown in a 1/4th inch width. Sold by the yard I purchased these in Paris years ago and they have sat in a museum box ever since. Excellent antique condition with the aqua showing slight patina/fading.
