A beautiful and richly ornamented marriage sheet loomed of a pure white and weighty grade of fine "fil de lin" linen. The return of this exceptional sheet is fully embroidered in Richelieu and English cutwork embroidery in a lyrical motif of flowers and bows - the bows certainly symbolizing a marriage! A stylized art deco monogram "RL," embroidered in a high relief of bourdon and post point embroidery decorates the center of the return and an unusually elaborate and wide row of fancy drawnthread embroidery underscores the whole. Hand hemmed. Early 20th century. Dimensions: 126 x 90.5in.
