Here's an unusual item. Porcelain pillows were generally used when resting or sleeping on the floor to support the neck. This is a small version of one of these, and technically I suppose it could be for a small child, but I think it is a small decorative of the full sized object. I've never seen one like it before. It's not tiny, as it measures 7 and 1/2 inches long, but it is certainly smaller than its full sized cousins. Best of all, look at the face of the child! He actually looks sleepy. Well decorated, unusual old item!
