1907 Teddy Roosevelt "Teddy Bears" Pillow Cover

This is a one-of-a-kind, vintage painted pillow cover titled "Teddy Bears". The cover depicts two bears (one painted with a striking resemblance to Theodore Roosevelt) carrying a bobcat on a pole. The first bear has a Rough Rider hat inscribed with the phrase "I Did It." His fellow bear companion carries a haversack marked "Washington, D.C."

The pillowcase was made in 1907 by Schwab & Wolf on New York. Copyright, title, and publication information is printed at bottom pillowcase margin. 


Pillowcase is in very good condition. Color remains bright- no disruption of image. No tears or no stains. Several loose threads along margins. 

Pillowcase is artfully presented floating on acid-free linen in a custom-built wooden frame. Framed dimensions: 31 1/2" H x 32" W x 1 1/4" D
