Fabulous Heirloom Pair of Antique French Linen Pillow Shams, beautiful and rare to find. These exceptional shams are loomed of white, silken linen, with a large, very fancy stunning monogram M I G embroidered in the center in bourdon. Most likely made for the Bridal Trousseau of a noble bride, this luxury pair is just so beautiful. The outer edge of the envelopes are bordered by a lush scalloped lacey edge, completely hand embroidered with a feminine bow design.
The fine quality of the embroidery work is a testimony to the exceptional skill of the embroideress. At the back, cloth covered and tiny mother of pearl buttons, one of the button holes has torn slightly, there are a few storage stains. This superb set of Euro Shams dates to the late 19th century, this type of work is amazingly difficult to find these days. A sterling addition to your collection of antique linens. Measure: 34" x31" .
