Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

           French Linen Sheet

           Monogrammed "CF" with Hand Needlelace

Item Number S20908

 Antique linen French sheet is beautifully monogrammed in raised satin stitch, "CF" in the style that has come to be known as Rembourré, which is French for "padded". Rembourré  is a three dimensional and highly durable style of embroidery that creates a depth and presence to the work through various layering techniques....two letters here quite likely represented initials from both him and her....so sappy, but ever-so sweet, too.   Fuchsias are embroidered within each letter...representing the surname "F".  The Victorian custom of using a floral theme that coordinates with the surname is ever-so charming, don't you think??  The creamy white linen is crisp,  cool to the touch in a tightly woven medium to heavy weight for great durability.  An deep row of hand made needlelace finishes the piece.  Freshly laundered and pressed, in excellent condition.  c.1900  92" X 124"
