I recently purchased this lovely Italian linen bed sheet & pillowcase set and just wanted to share a couple of photos with you. It dates from the 1920's and was part of a trouseau. The set is of cutwork embroidery featuring a large basket with a bouquet of flowers with a ribbon tied at the top of the basket. As the flowers spill from the basket they cascade along the the entire width of the edge of sheet. Wow! 84" of beautiful fancy work! The very edge of the sheet is scallop turning the corner at either side and extending 22" for the sheet return or foldover. Very nice quality linen.

And the pillowcases. Blue tissue has been placed under the design to give you a better visual look at the beautiful work.

Aren't they absolutely stunning!! And to believe they have been stored away all these years never being used.

Want to purchase this set? Please visit my Ebay store The Gatherings for complete details and price. While you are there you will want to shop my listings for other quality estate linens. Both for dining and bed.
