Fabulous Watered silk Moire ribbon dates from the 1890/1900's and is probably French in origin. This rare textile has swathes of ivory silk moire alternating with satin stripes of an incredibly fine "painted" silk warp pattern of roses and flowers in a palette of pink, red, lavender, greens and yellow. Silk ribbon trim is a medium weight, 11 inches in width with and has one cut selvage.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition with NO marks, fray, holes, shatter or fading. Please be aware antique textiles are always more fragile than new and require gentle handling. Sold by the yard.
