Lower sheet 10' X7'8" initial M.R. elaborate border with retours, openwork diamonds, squares, triangles  and poix £160.  contact Elizabeth Baer at retours are the extra emb. parts down the sides of the sheet and a mark of good quality linen!  Poix (peas)are the large polka dots emb. typical of 20s and 30s designs.
