This is a rare and quite unusual piece of late Victorian ribbon.

This is a 7.5" wide by 36" length piece of peach silk taffetta ribbon that has been embroidered with gold metal thread.

The repeating pattern is of a spider in a web followed by a flower etc. Above and below this are leaves and vines.

The backside of the fabric shows that the tecnique is using a beige thread that comes from the backside and tacks the gold thread in place. This has kept the gold metal threads from ripping the taffetta.

The piece is in very nice condition considering it's age. It does have a few things to mention.
Each end is not straight. One end has a notch cut out at corner. The other end is diagonal cut across the pattern. At this end there is a section of about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2' of wear . The fabric has thin line holes. I see only one other very, very small hole on the edge. All else is very nice.

This piece is still sturdy and would be amazing framed and used as art work.

I can send additional photos upon request.

Thank you for looking at myt listing. I am always happy to answer questions and inquiries.

This piece will ship USPS / First Class mail unless other arrangments are made in advance.. I'm sorry but the domestic shipping price does not apply to Alaska and Hawaii. Please convo me for those prices.
