Antique French Hemp or Rough Linen Feedsack
Item Number C31207
Fabulous for designers (and amateurs too!) ....antique French Hemp or rough linen feedsack has a row of triple red stripes down the center of the piece and a sweet hand monogram, "BM". It is actually one long piece of fabric that has been folded in half and stitched down the long sides to form a tall feedsack that would have held all manner of grain in storage. A French farmhouse essential, these were generally used and reused many times and are quite difficult to find in perfect condition. This one has a smudge on an old fold that will launder right out. A designer's dream for a bolster as is or could be opened on the sides for a piece of fabric 20" X 92" to be used as you see fit. Color is oatmeal -- natural. Excellent condition with one little smudge, shown below, and freshly laundered. c.1850's - 1900. 20" X 46"
