Antique French Linen Sheet

This is a beautiful 19th Century heavy linen sheet of fabulous quality. In the 19th Century, the looms were narrow, approx 100cm wide, so sheets had to be made in two panels, and then sewn together. This is a gorgeous example of sheets from that era. The fabulous embroidered monogram is approx 17 1/2 cm high and beautifully executed. It also has a rather lovely drawn thread detail at the top.
