That special place to put strange, old, unused things that are too cool to throw away. Antique Fancy Horsehair Brown Crinolin e Braid - 1.75 inches X 6 yards. Almost impossible to find, this is the real thing, fabulous, fancy horsehair br aid, never used. I would guess it is from circa 1918 to the early 1920's ; hat brims were becoming smaller in general as the style advanced to the cloche.

By the end of the 1920's th is fancy horsehair braid had all but disappeared. There is enough here for 2 -3 hats, depending on the style; or one fabulous, broad bri m summer hat. From this period we find summer hats built of wir e framing, covered in horsehair braid and silks. There are three thick channel threads along the straight edge for pulling and c urving the braid.

This is from an old suitcase of vintage millinery suppl ies. For heirloom sewing projects, crafting projects, millinery, dolls, purses, pillows, quilting, collage, scrapbooking...
