Interesting lot of antique dress trim. There are two lengths of “Stay Straight Scallop” made in Germany. There is also  some brown ric rac,  blue, lace edging, and 12 skeins/hanks of tiny cording.

**It is all badly soiled and is being sold for the collectible value. The antiquity. You can possible use it, but I can’t guarantee it will hold up. I’ve also not tried to clean it other than brushing some of the dust off. I don’t know if it will come totally clean.

I’ve chosen to leave everything wrapped the way I found it, so I don’t know lengths.

  • Both of the scalloped, satin stitched trim have the remainders of a package that reads, “The Patent Thread – Stay Straight Scallop – Perfect Edge – Made In Germany – 6 Yards.” I feel sure there is no longer 6 yards left on either of them. One is brown, the other is lavender. There is evidence of the paper and bits of the lavender trim bring a bug’s lunch.
  • Tiny, blue, cotton, scallop edging. It appears to be 2 pieces of trim wrapped around a card. They are soiled, but otherwise fine.
  • 3 hanks of tiny, pink cording. Two of them may be single lengths, but one has some visible cut ends. They are badly soiled.
  • 5 hanks of black cording. Several look to be single lengths, but there are a couple of cut ends in one.
  • 1 hank of navy cording that appears to be a single length.
  • 3 hanks of black cording. They look fairly short. Two look to be single lengths, one has frayed ends.
  • 3/8″, brown, ric rac. There are a couple of different lengths here and several chewed places.
