Antique Sheet French Linen Cotton Metis Monogram C H Beige Center Seam 82" x 113

Antique Sheet French Linen Cotton Metis Monogram C H Beige Center Seam 82" x 113 (L&T-375) Here is a antique French linen sheet. This French antique bed sheet features: a hand sewn center seam down the length of the sheet; a tiny 2 letter monogram at the far side of the sheet.

Sheet Measurement: 82" x 113" approximately

This antique sheet is circa early 1900ís. Antique sheets such as this one have a hand sewn center seam. as the looms were not wide enough to weave bed size fabric in one piece.

Color: Pale beige. Monogram C H: The hand embroidered letters are C H & are done in red embroidery thread. The monogram is located on the far side of the sheet.

Antique French Bed sheet condition: I would say that the bed sheet condition is in excellent pre-owned condition. I saw no obvious faults to the bed sheet. 3 small golden marks. It is in "as found condition" in that I have not washed it and will leave this for the buyer to complete.

The weight of the antique bed sheet is: 3.6 pounds, (1635 grams) which is a heavy weight.

The seller said that the sheet is Metis linen which I believe the fiber content is both linen and cotton. I have included close-up of the fibers. French Metis is a woven fabric in which linen is used for the vertical thread and cotton is used for the horizontal thread. It is extremly tough so the sheet will last years.

At the end of the sheet is a 1/2" machine stitched hem and at the other end is a 1" machine stitched hem.

I purchased this bed sheet from France. 1635 grams
