PORCELAIN PILLOWS WERE IN USE FROM THE SIXTH CENTURY, POSSIBLY EARLIER, TO THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY. THEY WERE DESIGNED TO KEEP THE NECK AND HEAD IN VERTICAL ALIGNMENT WITH THE SPINE AND FOR THE LADIES IT WOULD ALSO KEEP THEIR VERY ORNATE AND ELEGANT HAIRDOS IN PLACE. THE MOST ORDINARY SHAPES WERE SQUARE BRICK SHAPED BUT OTHER WHIMSICAL AND FANCY SHAPES INCLUDED CATS, RECLINING LADIES AND A CHILD ON HIS SIDE. THESE PILLOWS WERE IN USE IN CHINA AND JAPAN AND WERE PORCELAIN OR COULD ALSO BE WOOD, LACQUER AND EVEN JADE (FOR THE RICH).
THIS ADORABLE RECLINING BABY BOY HAS BEEN IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION SINCE MID-20TH. CENTURY AND HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OFF - $350.00 Or best offer.
