Bold pair of appliqued pillow cases from Rarotonga, one of the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. Fascinating to see the similarity with something that could have been made across the world in the United States in the same time period. Unwashed condition. Measure 27 3/4" x 20" including edging. Several different embroidery patterns in shaded tones embellish the applique. Circa 1970; Rarotonga.
