antique linen French embroidered sheet monogram RS

antique linen French embroidered sheet monogram RS

A stunning antique linen sheet with a monogram as distinguished and bold as the sheet's design is cheerful! This lovely sheet is loomed of a weighty, pale dove grey/white "fil de lin" linen with a smooth hand and a supple drape. The central embroidered monogram, "RS," is elegantly outlined in an important relief of bourdon and filled in with a fine ground of tiny seed stitch dots. The sheet return, as well as 24" of its height on either side, is exquisitely embroidered with daisies in very high relief in bourdon with fine bourdon and seed stich leaves. A nice touch is that each of the daisies is unique in its design! The row of embroidery is framed above with a double crossed drawn thread row of embroidery and below with a single row. The hem at the foot of the sheet is hand sewn with miniscule stitches. Likely dating from the turn of the 20th century, this lovely sheet is in new, impeccable, never used condition! Dimensions: 126 x 87.5in.
