B782 - Stunning Antique French Cotton Trousseau Sheet, B & B Monogram, Lace Panel
This is a stunning antique French trousseau / dowry sheet dating from about 1920. It is of superb quality and is beautifully hand embroidered and monogrammed with the initials B & B.
The lowest edge and corners of the sheet have a ladder stitch border and a gorgeous lace panel 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) deep. Above this is a central embroidered monogram. The monogram is 15 cm (6 inches) high x 20 cm (8 inches) wide. It has the letters B & B beautifully embroidered with smooth satin stitch. Under the letters is a swirling flourish with a central flower.
The cotton of the sheet is fabulous. It has a very dense weave and is very white.
The sheet has been laundered and is very crisp and fresh. It rustles divinely. The sheet is in excellent condition and I can find no defects.
The sheet measures 280 cm (9 ft 2 inches) long x 201 cm (6 ft 7 inches) wide.
This superb antique monogrammed sheet would make a lovely wedding present. It would be perfect for a bed and would also make a divine curtain.
