Linen, lace, silk thread, embroidered, sewn
One of the customs at the Passover seder is to recline at the table.
Sometimes pillows were employed for comfort in this ritual act, and special
covers were sometimes made for this pillow. This pillow cover is decorated
on three sides with lace. It has a matching matzah cover embroidered
by the same hand. This textile carries the symbols of the crown, the Ten
Commandments (embroidered in a strange manner with three Commandments
on one tablet and seven on the other!), and flowers and leaves symbolizing
the spring season.
