Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Frothy and Feminine Antique Embroidered Net Lace

Bed Cover and Shams

Item Number S07804

Divinely feminine frothy antique creamy white net lace coverlet and matching shams are heavily embroidered with flowers and appliquéd designs.  The center medallion is an elaborate spray of dahlias and lily of the valley surrounded by a large shield style border.  The ground is embroidered all over with meandering vines and flowers that draw the eye outward to the elaborate, wide border.  This outer border of intertwined daylilies gently curves up and down around the entire perimeter.  All four sides are alike, which for the brave among us means it could be used as a tablecloth.  GASP!  Can you imagine???!!!  The shams have the same borders with lilies in abundance and are more densely embroidered and appliquéd. 

The set is shown below at the shop on a 4 poster mahogany bed from the turn of last century -- double/full size.  It could be adapted to a queen size as well.  There are several small holes in the net and two small areas of scattered light gray speckle stains.  See these photos as well as close ups of the embroidery by clicking this link:  Antique net lace coverlet set.  Offered as found in excellent condition with issues as noted.  c.1900  Net lace coverlet -- 90" X 90"  Matching layover shams -- 30" X 30"
