The Gilt Plate Sampler 2 contains four yards of gilt and silver plated plate in the 11S size. There is one yard each of gilt and silver plated 11S plate as well as one yard each of this size crenelated.

The Zig Zag Trims are available in a combination box with a meter length of a gold tone and silver tone metal trim. These are antique french trims which replicate the same trim found in the grotto ponds on stumpwork pieces in England. The trim can be used to edge dresses, replicate water, or anything else you can think of. The trims are copper and brass based and will tarnish over a long period of time, like the originals. The width of the trim is 2 mm, the metal is 0.75 mm wide, and the peak to peak width of the undulation is 3 mm. It can be couched down with TIRE Silk Threads Size 50.

The textured silver zig zag trim is in a box with two yards of the trim. This is an antique french trim which has been run through a textured roller to facet the surface. The surface provides a sparkle like little diamonds which would be very useful for water, fountain sprays, grottos and dress trims in stumpwork.
