Unusual pair of Twenty Five Patch pillow cases from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; circa 1870. The background fabric of cherries is an interesting contrast with the solid red and white patches. Even more unusual is the swirling print of the background fabric. At first glance, the material looks almost like op art but it is definitely 19th century. The cases are in unwashed condition. They are totally pieced by hand. Measurements are 16 1/2" x 31".
