Lametta Tinsel Wired Roping
Our classic Lametta tinsel trims are authentic treats from the past! Manufactured in the traditional manner on antique machines that are more than 100 years old, these metallic Lametta tinsel trims are made just for us by a family firm that was founded in 1885.
What is Wired Tinsel Roping?
Genuine strands of Leonische "Lahn," which are fine, flattened metal filaments, are woven onto a stiff, twisted wire center. This central wire allows the tinsel roping to be formed into fanciful designs that hold their shape.
A Note about Lametta "Lahn"
This tinsel roping is made from real German metal "Lahn," which is prized by artisans and decorators for its old-fashioned qualities. The metallic strands are somewhat delicate and will matt down with handling, but this just adds to its authentic Victorian charm! Also, the gold-tone and fancy color plated tinsels will darken with time, while all the real silver plated tinsel is "guaranteed to tarnish."
