This is a excellent follow up of the "Old French Bed" linen ( le vieux linge Français) and not to be compared of course. And I had to admit when a very good Italian client of ours wrote to me after she bid on a 1950's bed linen quote;
" Yes it is very nice, but it bears no resemblance to the superb French Victorian Bed linen I have been buying from you over the past 5 years and I can now even more appreciate how wonderful it is to possess these extraordinary treasures" end quote.
Having said the above this bed linen is a superb copy and even so it has been machine embroidered, it does not look like it.
It is made of "Percale" cotton and has a very crisp appearance.
The design, which looks like bunches of grapes ,vine leaves, flowers and leaves, open thread work are repeated 3 times on the main body. There are two fine circles, one on either side, the border has a beautiful scalloped garland of small leaves which gives it a extra finish.
There are 2pillow cases with it measuring 73x75cm with envelope closing.
