"These say "made in France" so at least 20th century and fairly recent from the look of it; they don't look handmade to me. What makes you think they are old?"

"I found some similar online. They were woven into an African woman's hair braids or dreadlocks. Couldn't discover a name except "braids" or value. You should have the metal tested for purity. Many Pawn Shops will do it free."

Help identify vintage French sewing trim with gold metal braids

Can anyone help with the formal name of this? Is it sewing trim? Age? Typical use? It’s unique being coils/loops are delicate & fine metal (maybe called Purl or Bullion). Likely handmade? I translated the handwritten tag “mid & fine gold braids” (then the color & amount) Closeups are the attached pictures.Currently my "best guess" is formal name: "Passementerie Braid" & was used as a tassel cord??Thank you!See More
