Loomed of an extremely fine and lightweight white linen, this lovely sheet was certainly intended for summer use and could very well have been created for a marriage trousseau. The skill of the embroideress is manifest in the fanciful sprays of plumetis flowers intermingled with Richelieu and English style cutwork embroidery throughout the entire length as well as 37 in. of the height of the return. A fancy plumetis monogram AD, accented with cutwork flowers, occupies a central position and a delicate hemstitch runs all along the return border. 19th c. Dimensions: 126 x 93in.
