This 18" X 20" pillow front is made of nine squares of black wool felt that have been sewn together. Each square is decorated with colorful tufted woolen stars. The squares were made using a rug-hooking technique. The tops of the stars have been sheared and felted to be very fluffy. This pillow front is in excellent original condition; it is from the Depression Era, ca. 1030-1945, and was made here in the United States. It came from a Chicago area estate.
