Antique Wedding Sheet with Italian

Embroidery and Pulled Work

Item Number S13105

At the turn of last century, and for many years before, it was customary for the bride and groom to spend their first night together in a bed made with an elaborately decorated wedding sheet.  Some of these were made of linen, some fine percale cotton, but all were adorned with embroidery or lace, and often a monogram.

Antique Italian linen and cotton blend wedding sheet is embroidered with a cornucopia of wild flowers that gracefully drape across the center panel.  The sheet is made up of 3 panels of identical width and length.   These were joined with extremely fine stitches and then the piece was finished with a finely drawn hem.  There is minor wear along the seams in just a few places, the worst is shown below. This is quite common and does not present a problem with the integrity of the piece.  The embroidered panel is exceptional with a variety of stitches, pulled lace fillings and classically Italian embroidery techniques and motifs.  Large enough for a king size bed -- a rare find in a piece of this age.  Superior quality work.  The color is creamy white.  Excellent condition, as described. Freshly laundered and pressed.  c.1890 - 1900  106" wide X 107" long
