We love vintage and these are over half a
century old! These are not reproductions, but original bundles of
vintage stamens that were originally used for making millinery flowers.
They are in tremendously good condition. They were made by hand
years ago, with the precision of an artist. The stems, or
filaments are made of thread that has been stiffened either by
water and twisting or with wax.
Flower stamens are not just for flowers anymore. They make great
embellishments for all types of artwork and collage jewelry. This
little bundle includes approximately 288 tips (one tip on each
side of each stem - there are 144 stems total) on matte white stems that have faded with age. Each stem boasts
two tips. From tip to tip, one piece measures approximately 2-1/2 inches. Tips
are just about 3mm long.
