Age and Provenance
Sometimes I am lucky enough to find a piece that has been dated, but that is rare. If the item bears no clues as to it's age and history I will not make a guess. If any original written data came with the piece, like a letter or note from the original owner, I will mention it in the description and include it with the item.
Description & Condition of Items
All items are vintage, and NOT new reproductions.
When an item is described as "Perfect", "Mint", or "Near Perfect" condition, it means that to the best of my knowledge it is spotless and without repairs or obvious flaws. It does not necessarily mean the item has never been used or washed. If I believe an item in is new condition and has never been used or washed I will include that in the item description.
When an item is listed "as found" it means that the piece has not been washed or otherwise cleaned by me. It may also mean that a spot, hole, repair or significant defect exists in the fabric. These are described and whenever possible, photographed, so that the buyer may make an informed decision regarding purchase. Most lovers of linen find these things to be part of the charm and history of each piece but for the sake of accuracy I try to be very thorough. I'd rather offer something with a flaw that I believe has historic and aesthetic value and let you decide. Please remember that most of these linens are handmade and are considerably old; therefore, more likely to show signs of age and wear.
