B507 - SOLD
This is a divine antique French fine linen trousseau sheet dating from the 19th Century. It is of the finest quality and is exquisitely hand embroidered and monogrammed with the initials M & B.
Although huge, the sheet was made in one piece with no central seam .
The lowest edge of the sheet has a ladder stitch border with a central embroidered monogram. It is also interspersed with sprigs of embroidered violets.
The monogram is large - 25 cm (9.75 inches) wide x 21 cm (8.25 inches) high.
It has the letters M & B beautifully embroidered with smooth satin stitch and entwined with violets and tendrils of leaves.
The sheet has been laundered and the linen has retained it's true antique white colour. It is in excellent condition. We have just found one tiny pin prick hole by the top seam (see pics).
The sheet measures 300 cm (9 ft 10 inches) long x 235 cm (7 ft 8.5 inches) wide.
This is a fabulous antique monogrammed sheet. It would compliment the most fabulous of beds and would also make a divine curtain.
Another fabulous antique French textile find from La Belle Ètoffe!
