SPECIAL FEATURES - HANG ON A TREE-BRANCH OR USE FREESTANDING ON YOUR TABLE-TOP Add treats to this adorable Spring-themed flower basket - which is designed to go with other baskets listed in this category (scroll up or down to see). Deluxe early vintage fan-shaped double-ruffle rose-pink and marigold-yellow crepe paper nut-cup is decorated with Circa 1900's scrap flower children, antique Dresden paper trim, early vintage gathered ribbon, early vintage paper "Easter grass", and paper handle twisted with antique metallic loop trim. 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 German made embossed scrap(s) and chromolithographs (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. The exceptions to the exclusive use of old materials are as follows: 1) occasionally we use newer Dresden paper made in Germany that has been embossed and stamped with antique equipment; 2) Our high-quality gold and silver crinkle-wire is made in Germany with antique equipment.
