Three antique French pure linen dowry sheets.
One is almost perfect, another has been patched and the third, with crochet lace insert, has been re-made and has repairs.
Picture no. 2:
The oval embroidery on these two is thick raised satin stitch monograms with point de bourdon filling in the leaves and bows and measures 13 ½" x 9".
The sheet in bottom of second picture is in good condition, I only found one tiny pin sized black spot.
The other sheet has been patched on both sides, with pure linen pieces and has a seam across the width, well below the return.
It also has two faint rust marks and a small weave fault.  None of these show when the sheet is on the bed, rust will come out with rust remover.
Colours vary slightly due to age/washing.  Top sheet is ivory white and the bottom a creamy white.
The third sheet, with the lace insert - also ivory white, has the monograms A and B measuring a total of 14½ x 8 ½".
It has darns and a hole.  I think this one may have been the first "trial" embroidery as it is of lesser quality than the two oval ones.

The sheet in bottom of picture is 80" wide x 120" long and weighs 1630g/3.60 pounds
The sheet in top of picture is 79" wide x 125" long and weighs 1460g/3.22 pounds
The lace insert sheet measures 81" wide x 128" long and weighs 1400/3 pounds
Postage is in a Colissimo box with tracking no. and insurance.
