DL0008: Over 3 Yds Pearl/Rhinestones
Outstanding vintage Czechoslovakian prong mounted carved faux pearl and rhinestone trim. This has a fabulous aged appearance, with warm tones to the silver colored metal settings. Baroque style pearls are elongated and textured. The rhinestones sparkle like diamonds. Mountings on the undersides are flat backs. This trim measures 3/16" wide. Very, very elegant and chic! As I have examined the length, I have found two or three faux pearls missing along the length, but have included those pearls in a little bag, and they can be reattached to the length. Some very, very minor discoloration of one or two faux pearls. The rhinestones appear to be in lovely condition, as well, with clear and brilliant stones, no darkened or dead stones. Length measures 3 yards and 29 inches . Please note the brown tissue and card are included. They are original to the trim, the brown tissue is quite brittle and the card is worn, but it does have its Made in Czechoslovakia label. This was acquired by a costumer/collector who accumulated the finest treasure trove of vintage and antique European lace, buttons, appliques and other embellishments over a 9 year period, while living in Holland. During this time, she was able to travel to various parts of Europe to find these beautiful antique and vintage items and trims. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. Photos are considered part of the description.
