Off white pillowcase. About two inches away from the edge of the pillow is a think stitched line that works its way around the case. It is navy, light blue and white in color. In two of the corners within this blue line is a floral design: two stems, each with two flowers and leaves. On the back side of the case there is that same multi blue line, but instead of floral images in the center, the middle area is a mesh material with a slit opening for the pillow to get into.
Created by Penolope Neokos. She was born in Greece in 1899. In later years she came to the United States with her husband Nickolas, also native to Greece, where they became citizens of Illinois and lived in the city of Chicago. While in Chicago her and her husband lived with her brother along with her two sons (Ernie and John) and their one daughter (Frances).
Since made in Greece, this possibly could have been apart of her dowry before she married Nickolas and was brought over with them during their move to America.
