antique embroidered linen nightgown case
A perfect treasure from another time, this stunning envelope in pure "fil de lin" ecru linen was created to store one's nightgown as well as to adorn the bed. The flap, entirely hand embroidered, is decorated with a large spray of daisies in bourdon, post and tige point as well as a large and lovely Richelieu cutwork bow. A beautiful monogram, "PN," is embroidered in Richelieu cutwork in the center of the piece and a chain of English cutwork leaves runs along the hand scalloped border. Likely dating from the early 20th century this charming envelope is in as new condition and judging from its perfect state has quite possibly never been used. Dimensions: 14 x 12in.
