French antique linen sheet, monogram: PD
A splendour of embroidery and refinement this sheet, loomed of a fine pure white "fil de lin" linen, is a beauty to behold! It features a central monogram "PD" or "DP," the letters superimposed in bourdon embroidery and encircled by a lovely garland of Richelieu and English cutwork embroidered flowers. The entire width and 23 in. of the height of the return are decorated as well with trailing vines of cutwork leaves and flowers interspersed with a very fancy crossed drawn thread row of embroidery. A delicate drawn thread row of windowpanes frames the entire return border. Likely dating from the late 19th to early 20th century this stunning sheet is in impeccable condition! Dimensions: 120in. x 91in.
