Beautiful antique scrap valentine is framed in a stunning basket made with ruffled early vintage crepe paper with fantastic red wired tinsel handle. Fluffy early vintage spun-glass garland is tucked inside of the basket. 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.
