Coronation Cord was manufactured by the Columbia and Bear thread companies from 1875 till 1920 or so. It was sold by the yard and fell in disfavor about 1926. This lovely cord was used with Tatting, Crochet and Embroidery. It can be found as trim on towels and table linens.
I reluctantly sold this piece. It went to someone who appreciates works of art like this.
Thank you for visiting.
