17th century Dutch Ribbon / Edging / Trim ?

3 posts in this topic

Having scoured everywhere I can think of locally and on t'internet I havent managed to find anything that looks like the trim on this 1650's Dutch belt. Has anyone on here seen anything like this on their travels?

The other questions about it are:

  1. In your opinion is it even a trim or is it gilt on the actual belt itself?
  2. It seems to be quite shiney so what material would you think it was?

Wish I could help. Modern trim in my experience is nearly impossible to match with period trim. Good luck!

The weird thing is theres actually something really familiar about it, like I have seen it (or similar modern version) on something I encounter but I cant think where I have seen it.
