Lot of antique embroidered trims and insertions, most cotton, some
linen, I think?
These are works of art just as they are - six large cards of antique eyelet sewing trims, beautifully made although very spotted from age and storage.
I don't know if these could ever be cleaned up enough for use, but they'd make lovely backgrounds or photo props. Most of the cards measure about 16" x 10", one is a little smaller.
This fabric is out of a whole cellar full of beautiful old textiles we purchased recently... including some very unusual and hard to find fabrics. This was stored away since around WWII, untouched since the 1940s.
Most of this material does have age related foxing (it was carefully stored, wrapped in paper or tissue, which no one expected at that time to lead to foxing later!). There's discoloration to edges and outer folds and fold lines on this fabric.
It's never been laundered, and we haven't washed or soaked it. It might clean up with a good wash, but we'll leave that up to you!
