This is a piece of marbled paper for the inside lid of a trinket box. The combing is very small in scale and was made in the traditional way with grinding of cochineal for the pink. 3" x 6" on dark holbart paper.
These spangles are made by Mark Atchison, the same blacksmith who made the spangles for the Plimoth Jacket, in the same way! Now they are available in large enough quantities for gold and silver lace projects. Authentic in every way, from the periodic nips in the bottom of the tear drop shape to the flat edges that come from the historic process here and there. Mark hand punches each one out from a gilt silver.
If you ever wanted to rim your project with authentic metal bobbin lace, the 9drm Gilt and 90% Silver Tambour threads in the shop were developed for the Plimoth Jacket lace and work perfectly with these spangles.
The spangles are sold per piece so you can get just the right number for your lace pattern and length.
These silk tassels were made by a historic passementerie company specially for our caskets. Two small twisted thread ties with seared ends allow you to attach the tassel with its florets made from silk wrapped strip to the key. Measuring a bit over 2" long, they are a fantastic addition to your casket.
