CBI 1945 Silk and Bullion Mother Pillow Case - WWII
Unique, hand made CBI - China Burma India - pillow case. Brown silk base embroidered "TO MOTHER" and 1945. The bullion stitching is very nice on this but as it is hand made there are some loose threads along the edges. Nothing is coming undone; It just looks like this was made not so tightly. The fabric is a warm brown silky material that was very frustrating to photograph either with or without a flash. It is a good bit darker then it looks in the photographs but the three red fields at the bottom of the shield are a bit faded. It seems that mothers are the weak spot of every soldier in every army that has ever existed. Nice personal piece from a very interesting WWII theater.
