We have grouped these 3 sheets and came from the Chateau at Brantôme.
They were found in the servant quarters of the 4 gardeners on the Estate who lived in "tied cottages" virtually all their working lives and finally left in 1975.
Two very heavy bed linen are 2.40m and 2.00 m and we can date them to the end of the 19th C. as they are joined in the centre by the selvedges. The weaver would come to the chateau with his maximum 1 meter wide loom and weave according to the commissions. The girls in the sewing room would join them together and put initials on them.
The third bed linen (A.S.°is a much later sheet and dates to approx. 1930's which measures 1.90mX2.40m. Do not forget beds were much shorter in those days.
All 3 can be used as bed linen, but if not, you can make superb curtains out of the 2 heavy white linen, or even loose covers etc.
Some of the selvedges have to be sewn together again, but considering it's age they are still in perfect condition.
