Antique Norwegian Hardanger gold metallic braid

I bought and Antique Norwegian Hardanger costume that unfortunately the moths had had a good meal on. It was covered with gold metallic braid and beadwork. I spend 5 evenings stripping off all of the best pieces.
These braids are ideal for sewing onto cushions or bags. They have a wonderful patina which only age can give. 

All listed today on the Rag Rescue website

A beautiful cuff with gold braid along the edge.
