The soldiers remembered their Sweethearts at home by sending them a pillow case with the name of their training camp. In this case it is Fort Devens, Massachusetts.
Ft. Devens was used during both WW1 and World War 2. Because of the synthetic feel of this fabric, we think it was from the 1940s.
To read more about Ft. Devens, go to:
Although this is vintage, the 18" square pillow case appears never to have been used.
It is in excellent condition. There is no fading. There is an opening at the bottom where a purchased pillow could slide into the case.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We specialize in custom orders for resellers all over the world. Contact us to discuss the details.
We no longer sell to China or the Middle East. Although the people are lovely, we have had too many delivery problems.
We ship via Priority Mail within the continental US without any extra charge. For other areas, the order is sent via First Class International Mail with the US Post Office.
There appears to be some confusion about VAT taxes for EU buyers. VAT taxes are NOT included in the selling price - no matter what wording appears in the cart at checkout.
Of course, we are happy to work with large orders. Contact us through messages and explain your needs.
Do not wash any of the china in the dishwasher.
We do not know the exact materials used in the china. We are selling them as decorative items.
