Truly a labor of love, this antique cardboard candy container with its original metallic paper and purple ribbon hanger was meticulously restored; decorating all 5 sides was truly a labor of love! Antique scrap Lady is dressed up in high style, with flower corsage, bowler's cap, and is demurely holding a fan. Each side is framed on all of its edges with beautiful gold early vintage Dresden paper trims and is decorated throughout with lovely antique scrap flowers and vintage and antique stars. You can carefully open the container from the top flap to hide a treasure or two. Handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
This one-of-a-kind ornament is made almost exclusively with antique and early vintage materials, including old glass ornament(s) with beautiful patina; detailed embossed scrap(s) (most of them predate the 1900s and are meticulously backed with early papers and/or old tinsel); a variety of old fabric to include chenille, lace, ribbon and metallic trims; old decorative tinsel (most of which is from old tree garlands); and old papers of all kinds, including lovely old-stock Dresden paper trims, crepe paper, old foil, gift wrap, and other embellishments.
