Vintage French PURE Linen Sheet Floppy VV Monogram Cream Embroidery 88" x 110". This is one of the Fabulous Collection range of sheets from Faded-Grandeur!!
Exceptional quality antique sheets made from pure French linen using the longest and best strands. They will be fluid and supple and'heavy in the hand' as good linen should be. Some are monogrammed, others embroidered, but all the very highest quality craftsmanship, and getting rarer to find each year. This is barely used and deliciously cool to the touch.Heavy and floppy pure linen sheet in a lovely cream colour. Decorated with a run of ladderwork across the whole width encircling embroidered dots, and then continuing down the sheet return for 23 or 59cm. It has a deep (3 1/2 or 9cm) ladderwork hem under the decoration. A hand embroidered VV monogram completes the decoration. It is very raised and situated in an art deco style diamond shape of embroidered dots and slender lines.
Really beautiful embroidery on a wonderful quality sheet. Dimensions: 88" or 224cm wide, by 110" or 280cm long. Dimensions of the monogram: 7 1/2 " or 19cm by 5" or 13cm. Weight 1.75 kg or 3.8 lbs. 4 days to Europe, 8 to USA, 10 to Australia.As with all my linens this sheet is freshly washed, so ready to use. This sheet would have been part of the bride's'trousseau' or dowry linen with both the bride and groom's initials embroidered onto the linen. Some of the trousseau the bride would have made herself, others would have been given as wedding presents. From a smoke free household. Do visit my shop for more French finds!
