A beautiful unique trim for costuming, millinery or other craft of your imagination. A fabulous Edwardian applique embellishment, more than likely French. Handmade of silk and gold metallic thread it is woven in an intricate design of fans, scrolls and ovals.
The stitches around the oval of the fan design are so incredibly tight and tiny. It is amazing. Color shades are a beige, on the outer work, and a wheat color on the inner part which is accented with the gold metallic thread.
Size is 4-1/2" long x 3" wide.
Condition: One break of thread of one of the fans, See lower part of the photo.
