Antique French Linen and cut work lace bed sheet, hand made. This sheet is from the late 1800’s and was clearly made by hand. The stitch work is visible on the back. The sheet is made of fine linen and in almost perfect shape. It is very long, almost 20” longer than a normal sheet, because the lace is meant to fold over the coverlet for that amount. The lace extends through the sides of the sheet to about 20”, making it a very charming addition to a romantic bed. The sheet is slightly off white in color, may be due to age or that is the color it always was. It could be sun bleached to make it brighter, but it has not been done. There is one flaw with the sheet: it has two repairs on one side as shown in the photo. The sheet is priced bearing this in mind.
Measurements: width 82”, length 116”.
