These vintage millinery leaves will double as angel or fairy wings ever so easily! They are from decades ago and are made with precision. The white mesh is still very bright even though these are new old stock. The edges of the mesh are accented with silver borders and feature white wrapped wire stems.
These are great for altering! Consider dying them with fabric dye or food coloring. You might also want to embroider them. The mesh should be easily pierced by a sharp needle. There are just so many possibilities!
Each bunch contains a dozen vintage leaves/wings. These are really called flower accents, so you know there are many adventures in creating ahead with them!
The white mesh part is 1-3/4 inch at the widest by 1-1/2 inch from point to base. The stem is another 4-1/4 inches. The entire length is 5-3/4 inches.
It seems to us that the vintage millinery leaves and flowers are so much more distinctive than those we find today. Perhaps that's because most of the older pieces such as these were made by hand - even the stems were hand wrapped.
