Fantastic vintage gimp braid edging trim in a deep dark rich olive green (almost black). This piece measures approximately 5/8" wide x 6 yards.

From a box of very old laces and trims I acquired several years ago from an estate here in Central Texas. One trim was wrapped around an old envelope postmarked 1931, so I would date this trim to sometime around the late 20s or early 30s. Fabulous old lace trim for dolls, bears, restoration projects, fashions and embellishing new heirlooms.

Some things to keep in mind when purchasing vintage trims. I do not launder these vintage textiles, offering them as found. Oxidation is a natural process which can affect textiles. Antique, hand-beaded or embroidered trims may not be perfect. By their very nature, there may be irregularities in old trims and laces. These wonderful old trims many times will be found with small dark spots and/or some age discoloration. Most often they will clean up quite nicely. Start by trying a gentle soak and wash with a mild soap intended for hand washables. If a little more "oomph" is necessary you can try a soak using Biz or Oxy-Clean. When finished, rinse with cold water until the water is clear. Squeeze the excess water out and lay the lace trim flat to dry. Any ironing should be done on the reverse side (if there is a reverse). An alternative, which is becoming increasingly popular, is to tea-stain old laces which results in some marvelous vintage ecru colors.

Please use the photos and description to help with your decisions so you can have an enjoyable shopping experience.
