This fabric a tightly woven high thread count linen of the finest quality with a creamy and supple hand. This sheet has been beautifully embroidered with an elegant monogram which reads'MC'. The initials are embellished with a spray of Lilies-of-the-valley.

We will will be able to help you with information for this as stated above, but WE CAN ONLY INITIATE CLAIMS FOR ITEMS LOST TRANSIT.

We do our best, in all good faith, to describe our items fully and in detail and to note any of the small'flaws' that are almost inevitable in Vintage and Antique items.

Please take a minute to have a look at our Feedback.
To that end we make every effort to describe our items accurately and fully and to note any small flaws which are inevitable in these vintage items.

For the protection of our customers and ourselves.
We are a fully liscensed and legal business in France. Our Siret Number is 502590573.00015. Comments on the Condition of the items we sell. Virtually all the items we sell are "vintage" which means they have, in the majority of cases, been used, and are at least 50 to 75, and occasionally even more than 100 years old.
Having said that, we do not sell items that are so used that they are obviously heavily worn, faded, or too fragile to use. Almost all our items were made by hand in France during the first half of the last century--most would date from between about 1890 and 1950, although it is quite difficult to be certain of an exact date in most cases.It would be quite unusual to find this kind of fine hand work in France after about 1960. Again because these items are Vintage they have, in the vast majority of cases, been used. Still it is inevitable that occasionally there may be a hardly noticable tiny pin dot stain or a tiny rend on any given item.
We always carefully launder and iron our items and in doing so inspect them carefully for a second time. If we notice a small flaw on an item we put that in my description. It is our hope that our customers understand that we would not and do not sell items which are not clean or have evident large stains or tears. But please do understand that because the items we sell are Vintage, and usually are at least 50 to 75 years old, they are rarely absolutely "pristine and perfect" as if they were new. Like all fine antiques, they will have their own sort of patina.Some sellers do sell these vintage items in the state in which they find them and of course they inform their customers of that fact. Because the items we sell are generally much sought after here in France and abroad, they are becoming more rare, and certainly more difficult to find. We travel far and wide in our region of France to visit flea markets, brocantes, antique shops and private sellers.
We visit Paris from time to time, and we search for these rare items in other areas of France when possible. Our travel costs to seek out new items are significant. Very importantly for our customers, I spend a great deal of time laundering and ironing the items we sell.
This always involves lots of energy both electrical and mine! And time, and often requires specialized laundry products which can be costly. Finally we are a legal business here in France. For all these reasons, the prices of these vintage items may seem a bit high--but the fact is that almost all these items are rare and special by virtue of being Handmade. Many are virtual works of art, (some are actually of museum quality), having been made entirely by hand by highly skilled, but sadly now unknown, seamstresses and embroiderers.These skilled craftswomen have all but entirely disappeared. This kind of French hand work is virtually a Lost Art and these items are rare. Still, in the face of the expenses involved in running our business, we do our best to keep our prices as reasonable as possible because it really is a great pleasure to package something very beautiful and very special and send it off to someone who will appreciate a lovely European Treasure From the Past.
