Antique Linens by Em's Heart
Antique French Linen Sheet
with Cluny Lace Flounce and Venetian Drawn Work
Item Number S19707
Classic antique French linen sheet drips
with linen Cluny lace, a Venetian drawn work border and heavenly monogram, "PP".
The lace is sturdy and hand made of creamy white linen floss -- the best of the
style -- and rounds the corners to form a lengthy turndown. The beautiful monogram is hand
embroidered and padded in the French "Rembourré" style, demonstrating exceptional skill in both design and
execution. It seems she might have changed her mind as the "shadow" of a
previous monogram can be seen beneath this one, shown below. The supple creamy white antique
linen has a few small age spots, shown below. These will likely launder
out the next time through. A tiny 2mm can be forgiven and will not pose a
problem unless you plan to wrestle Gangues Khan in your bed.
(On a more personal note, should there be a wrestler or two out
there, perhaps this antique lace sheet should be turned back before the match
commences?...just a thought.) If you love lace and you are a
"P", well, can you resist??....a sheet worthy of the finest
trousseau....Yours?? Oh my!! Freshly laundered and
pressed, in excellent condition for it's age, as shown. Sheet is 88" X 114" plus
5.5" Cluny lace.
Monogram is 5" X 5.5". Turndown is 23"
Amazing antique Cluny lace linen sheet,
