Fine French Linen Monogrammed and Hand Work Euro Sham

I found this luxurious, finest, and silkiest "fil de lin" French sham in France. It has such detailed needle worked drawn work all around. But my favorite part, besides the exquisite linen is the magnificent BN moniker, with room for the bridegrooms initial to intertwine. Certainly made by a young girl for her trousseau, in anticipation of her bride groom's initial to create their monogram. It has hand drawn work and hemstitching with precise little snow flakes in each corner. The heavily padded BN is incredible with strings of embroidered pearls incorporated into each initial. And then there are the 40 hand embroidered flowers interspersed in between the unique drawnwork border. It measures inside 26" square with an additional 2" flange, which will stand out when placed on your bed. It closes on the back with 5 buttons and hand stitched buttonholes. In exceptional condition, it has 2 small hand patched areas at the bottom, shown in photo which won't even show, especially when placed on the bed. Luxurious, YES! Feel free to inquire! Thank you for visiting
