    Chinese Hand Pillow

    Will you please tell me what this is?

    It was suggested to me that it was a Chinese "Hand Pillow".

    I have never heard of such a thing.

    Thank you very much for your time and patience.

    Yes, it is

    As usual when we touch upon the fine points in Chinese culture, I turn to Simon Ng in Hong Kong for help, and yes - he confirmed at once that this is indeed a pillow.

    The summers are warm and humid in some areas in China and these were sometimes "a blessing" for a hand or as a head rest, as he put it.

    If this is a genuine article or a later replica, is another question though, and for a date I would suggest early to mid 20th century.

    Thank you for your interest.

    Best regards,
    Jan-Erik Nilsson
