Dating from the early part of the 20th century, Edwardian - 1920's era, a wonderful Italian unused trousseau bed sheet.  Heavily embellished with cut work embroidery, a monogram letter A and an Italian motto "Sogni Feliici" (Sweet Dreams) and pulled thread / drawnwork.  

A 4" wide meandering flora cutwork covers the entire width of the sheet, which is 90" across.  This would be at the top edge of the sheet.  The lovely work turns the corner to extend another 23-1/2" in length, which forms the sheet return.  In another area of cutwork, the monogram and motto measures 18" long x 9" wide, at the center width of sheet, just about the meandering flora.  An added accent of drawn / pulled thread work provides a discerning look. 

The bed sheet measures 90" wide x 112" long.  The fabric is a nice quality metis, a blend of linen flax with cotton fibers in a plain weave.  It has never been used and remains unlaundered.  Although relatively clean, you may find some oxidation from storage.  The sheet would launder beautifully.  I found no flaws except for never being laundered. 

If you have a penchant for lovely antique bed linens, I don't think you will be disappointed.
