Rare old stock French silk ombre ribbon is unsurpassed for ribbon work leaves. Ribbon dates from the 1920's and is woven in a palette of golden, moss and olive tones with a picot fringe of gold metal thread at each selvage. It takes just four and 1/2 inchs of ribbon to make each leaf as shown, 8 leaves for each yard of ribbon. There may be the occasional tiny slub or pin dot along the length which only adds to the antique charm of this rare French ribbon. Ribbon is available in a 5/8th of an inch width. SILK and METAL. Excellent antique condition. Sold by the yard. Rose and leaves are for display only.
