I can only describe this superb piece of artistry bedlinen as sumptuous and so deliciously rich and it " reeks" of History with a capital H.
It almost deserves to be a museum piece as it so rare and beautiful. It must have taken the maker a very long time to finish.
It is embroidered over the entire length and this rare in it self.
There is so much detail in this piece that it is difficult to bring it into words.
The initials I think are two E.E.'s, but not sure though.
Please do study the photos carefully.
The bedlinen is in superb condition and again came to us though the French - Irish Aristocratic Dynasty family.
The châtelaine assured me that she had never used it and has been wrapped in tissu paper in the armoire ever since.
It shows .A very rare piece to possess.
