Not vintage, but authentic Steifkantille (German Bouillon), still made in Germany in the traditional fashion. Steifkantille is created from fancily-spun metal bouillon which is twisted around a central core of wire (they're kind of like tiny, long slinkies). This helps it to hold its shape so that it can be formed into all manner of decorative embellishments. Click on the small ornaments to see enlargements that use Bouillon.

Sold by the strand (each strand is 20" long).
