UF115 Plaid Homespun Wool Pillow

19th century homespun blanket, newly made into a pillow
24 x 24 (61 x 61 cm)

Such a great pillow newly made from early homespun. Feather filled with three antique Mother-of-Pearl buttons used for the closing. We didn't know which way to photograph it and finally chose the side with the buttons. The detail image shows the other side. Beautifully made, there is a 2 inch lip including a 5/8 inch fringe around all four sides so the feather insert is 20 x 20. Just lovely.
