Beautiful unused French pure linen sheet; curtain

This is so lovely - what delightful decoration, it needs a high level of skill to create the drawn thread detail within the flowers. This is a real heirloom piece to be treasured; I have found a few sheets like this recently - all are a joy to behold.

The central monogram is so pretty and shows the letters A and V? U? D? I am not sure! Below this are rows of ladderwork and sprays of flowers which stretch the full width of the return. Everything, of course, stitched by hand to the very highest standard.

Smooth, cool and weighty pure linen in a very pale putty/beige colour (a little darker than the photos show) which will continue to lighten with laundering. The fabric would be so lovely to sleep under of course but with its pretty decoration this sheet would make a fabulous curtain to billow at a bedroom window, it'll filter the light beautifully.

It's impossible to be sure but I would say it is highly likely that this sheet has never been used. No thinning, wear or damage. No marks but you may want to give it a quick wash to freshen up before use.
