Lot of early 1900s handkerchief linen, some plain white linen, some with
white on white embroidery (Swiss? Madeira? possibly Japan?). This is
lovely stuff, very fine and light.
In the roll of all plain linen, there's 6 yards of 16 3/4" wide fabric. The roll with the embroidery is also 16 3/4" wide, 2 yards of the embroidered stuff, and 1 yard plain at one end.
This fabric is out of a whole cellar full of beautiful old textiles we purchased recently... including some very unusual and hard to find fabrics. This was stored away since around WWII, untouched since the 1940s.
Most of this material does have age related foxing (it was carefully stored, wrapped in paper or tissue, which no one expected at that time to lead to foxing later!). There's discoloration to edges and outer folds and fold lines on this fabric.
It's never been laundered, and we haven't washed or soaked it. It might clean up with a good wash, but we'll leave that up to you!
