Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Magnificent Monogrammed

Antique Linen Shams

Item Number B01804

This fabulous pair of antique shams represent the best of two periods in linen history.  The monogram was likely done in the first third of the 19th century.  As the linens were used and passed down the monograms were salvaged and placed on another pair of shams, likely c.1880's.  This was a lovely custom and required exemplary needlework skills and patience. 

These antique shams are fine linen lawn, light to medium weight and white, but not brilliant white.  They are trimmed in handmade whitework eyelet lace and except for two small separations, are in remarkable condition.  They were designed to close with ribbons threaded through buttonloles on both sides of the opening on one side.  There are one or two tiny holes in the lawn as well.  A fabulous pair for your best bed!  Actual area for pillow: 24" X 30"  Border and lace adds 2.5".
