MEASUREMENTS PROVIDED ON SATURDAY....SALVAGED FROM A MOST AMAZING ART/DECO 20s BODICE FROM THE FLAPPER ERA.....THIS IS A TREASURE

This is for a total of two (2) wonderful antique small trim fragments (see Photo 2). Photo 3 shows two fragments pieced together although they were from different areas of the bodice. The trim is dense with some weight due to the amount of beads, etc.

It has very tiny cobalt blue prong-set rhinestones in areas, pale aqua/turquoise glass beads, tiny silver metal balls (plain and ribbed), tiny faceted glass flower at top edge (see Photo 4). All on sheer silk chiffon with thick black silk/silken embroidered threads (see Photo 11) and edged with an abundance of silver metal strands. This is highly intricate in detail.

It is being sold "AS IS". (these are NOT large fragments). This is a must for the collector of unique/rare trims.

THESE EACH MEASURE APPROXIMATELY 5 1/4" + 3" X 1 1/8".......THIS IS A TOTAL OF 8.25"....
