antique linen embroidered pillow shams monogram LP
As pretty as they're refined this superb pair of antique pillow shams in loomed of an exceedingly fine and silky pure white "fil de lin" linen." A jewel-like monogram, "LP," is beautifully embroidered in one upper corner in a scrolling bourdon embellished with leaves and Richelieu open-work. The perimeter of each envelope is embroidered with openwork flowers and a lovely crossed drawn-thread row runs between them. A flat ruffle and a tiny hemstitch finish the borders, and each sham closes at the back with six mother-of-pearl buttons. Likely dating from the early 20th century, these exquisite pillow shams are in impeccable condition. Dimensions: interior 27 x 26in., exterior 31 x 30in.
