Dating from the late 19th century or early 1900's, a wide piece of silk taffeta ribbon. The piece measures 41" long x 19" wide. Lovely for doll dressmaking or other costuming.
The design of the ribbon is a small check with 1/2 in dots. The color is a black and maroon.
Condition: Some stitch lines show when held to the light. At the same time, a few pin size holes can be seen. Still, the ribbon feels very sturdy when tugged across the bias. Not often do I find ribbon this wide.
