Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart
Pair of Antique Marseilles or Matelasse
Victorian Coverlets For Twin Beds
Item Number S14206
White linen blend is soft and perky on these unused and nearly perfect antique Matelasse coverlets... Designed for matching twin beds, these amazing antique Victorian coverlets came to me in pristine condition and bearing an original makers mark, shown below. Thankfully, I photographed the mark before they were laundered as it lightened considerably but still can be seen.
These were a joy to handle and to photograph! The linen content makes them smooth and cool to the touch. A plain center panel is surrounded by classic arabesques and buoyant blooming poppies all the way around. There is one faint area of age to speak of, shown below. I've not seen an antique Matelasse with this pattern -- Poppies --might it have been purchased by a "P" (a quaint Victorian custom, did you know?...)?? White and bright as the day they were made. Freshly laundered and pressed and in excellent condition. c.1890 53.5" X 81"
