{Vintage luxe #1} Antique trim

From the pages of a 19th century salesman's book of Spanish trim. It was a time when real metal was used liberally in trims. And it results in lustre unrivalled by its contemporary counterparts.

Sourced from a collector of rare antique fabric remnants, Lisa Genesta. I spend a long time admiring her pieces. She has just listed some more here and here

Embracing vintage is an environmentally sound initiative. This piece is so much more than that. To me, this is art. And will be framed and hung, accordingly.
