Pink braid Vintage corsetry trim for suspenders girdles lingerie c 1940s


Two lengths of narrow pink lingerie braid, for trimming ladies' corsetry garments.
It is the "flesh pink" favoured for girdles, corsets etc around the time of the Second World War.
This is unsold shop stock from pre-decimal times, but it is difficult to date exactly.
I would guess somewhere between the 1930s and 1950s.
It appears to be made of "artificial silk" (rayon).

 
Size: Three-eighths of an inch wide (1 cm approx).
There are 6 yards altogether, in two pieces - one 5-yard length, and one 1-yard length.

 
Condition
New and unused - but over half a century old.
The braid is in very good condition, with just one or two small marks.
