A pillowcase with a difference: the flowers are painted on, not stitched! The eBay seller mentioned this on her auction, and wondered if it was meant to be like that, or if it was actually unfinished. I have looked closely at it, and cannot see any transfer marks under the stitching or the painted area, so perhaps the whole design was printed on the material in colour originally, and someone just decided to embellish the peacock!

You can't tell the flowers are painted...I remember when that was quite popular here though. Painting...many ladies enjoyed it and I could see why. Quicker, for one thing.
