Vintage Chinese pillow, WWII, China
I really can not imagine that it was very comfortable, but this is indeed a pillow. Rock hard. It was made for the Chinese army during WWII. This one was never used, all the stickers are still on it.
One side shows heroic soldiers, that was probably the side you slept on while awaiting a dangerous battle the following morning. The other side shows a rustic Chinese landscape, for after the battle, to set your mind at ease while it was processing all that happened on the black black battle day that preluded this night.
Due to old age and probably dry storage conditions the leather has dried out over the years. That is why it has shrunk a bit and the seams have come loose in places. If you really want to sleep on this pillow, it could become a problem in the long run. If you buy this for your collection curiosities, than you probably don't care. It's current condition has been taken into account in the price, so no use asking for a discount.
