This petite antique French appliqué is a masterfull creation of the embroiderers' art. It is a small 3 & 1/2 by 4 inches, but has many examples of embroidery techniques including: tiny ruched silk ribbon flowers in cream and lavender with gold METAL knot centers. Gold METAL lozenge shaped spangles, metal thread embellished padded lace appliqués, glass rhinestones encircled with silver beads, couched gold cords, reverse appliqué in METAL cloth of gold, lace embellished with gold and silver metal pearl stitch. It has two silk cords on the back you could run a ribbon through to make a superb Edwardian/1920's headpiece. I wonder if that was their purpose Excellent unused antique condition with maybe 1 or 2 loose stitches.
