If you, like me, enjoy collecting interesting hard-to-find vintage holiday ephemera in all-original, mint and unused condition, then this fascinating find of twenty ribbon spools, made by the Gibson Line in the 1920s or 1930s, would be perfect for you.

These spools of ribbon were made for gift wrapping Christmas packages. There are 13 in glittering metallic gold, and Gibson called them “Sandallace.” Each unused spool of gold has five yards.

There are also 7 spools in red-and-green mixed ribbon that resembles today’s curling ribbon. Gibson called this “Ribbonzene,” and each spool contains six yards.

All spools are in MINT, unused condition, and each measures 2” high. All spools have their original golden labels on either end.

As a member of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past, I can just envision these hard-to-find examples of holiday ephemera displayed in a grouping in the museum room at an upcoming convention!
