These are so hard to find now from this era. A lovely homespun antique French slubby chanvre linen feed sack. This is a good long one, flecks of flax throughout giving it it's more oatmeal color. This is handmade probably at a village weavers house, made from one large piece folded in half and then very carefully hand sewn up one side in the tiniest of stitches in linen thread. The top has a "fold" to the top with twine for tying once full. Tiny faded red cross stitched monogram of QV on one side, just below this is a larger black printed initial also of QV - identifying initials for the local mill. The reverse is plain. I have taken a photograph of the linen held up to the light so that you can get a better look of the weave.
This is at least 170 years old and bears the passage of time. There are no holes or marks, however there are about 8 beautifully sewn darns throughout - please see all photographs.
Perfect for cushions, just stuff and sew with large buttons, perfect for a church pew, love seat, beach house etc
18" (45.1/2 cms) wide 61" (5ft 1") length
Freshly laundered, line dried, ironed and ready to use.
