Superb unused 19th century French hemp sheet. A wonderful piece to use as a tablecloth, bed cover or curtain. Or a sheet! UK postage £12.

Traditional hand stitched little laundry monogram worked in red cross stitch and set either side of the centre seam. Simple plain hems.

The fabric is heavenly - smooth but so very sturdy. I have soaked, soaked, soaked this and laundered it. It's soft, pliable and very ready for use. A delightful piece.

I love these older pieces, the fabric is amazing, you just can't find anything like it new today. Colour is a lovely warm stoney beige - a little paler than the photos show. The colour is still a little uneven and there are the remains of some storage marks. All this will get sorted in the next few washes at which point the sheet will be fully worn in and ready for 100 years of service!
