Scope and content

A brown, silk pillowcase with a green, blue, tan, pink and purple flower design. The inside shows the opposite pattern from the front, with blue, green, pink, tan and purple stripes and brown flowers. It has a side seam on either side. The upper seam has an orange line. Along the edge of the pillowcase is red Chinese writing which translates to "Woon Lin Silk Knitting Co." 'Woon Lin' means Cloud Forest. There are two parallel red lines around the writing. As this is the name of the company, this pillowcase would have been used as a store prop, to the advantage of the company.
