Unknown Textiles

Picked from an estate of a couple that both worked in the automotive upholstery industry for major auto companies as early as late 1920’s

3 Rolls of Corticelli Silk Fabric (appears to be two different colors)

2 Rolls of webbing (43 and 28 feet)

390+ tassels (bunches of 6).  Seem to match the color of silk and webbing. Also in two different styles.

Grandson of couple mentioned that they came from Fisher Body  during the grandfather’s employment during the 1920’s-1930’s.  Known to be used in cars with slide-down (up) screens and tassels used for handles within the car.  I can’t find any pictures or ads proving this.

Pictures follow below.
