Measuring approximately 14" square, early 20th Century folk-art pillowcase including three B18 blankets.  Includes Chick Gandil (tougher green pennants variation), Jeff Tesreau (green infield variation) and Possum Whitted (tough yellow pennants variation).  Also includes six Rose O'Neill "Kewpie" blankets, all dating to 1914.  The blankets have been stitched together and ringed with a white cloth frill, and are backed with a red cloth pillowcase.  Well-worn, this pillow was loved by a youngster in 1914, with tears and stains to prove it.
