A Closer Peek

Mary Doggett's Sleep Pillow


In 1682 Mary Doggett published her recipe for a good night's sleep and we have faithfully reproduced it  housing it in a 19th century linen pillow, hand embroidered with little robins, stars and lines from a 19th century lullaby and measuring 6.5 x 6.5" (17x 17cm).   As Mary said it is"a bag to smell unto for Melancholy or to cause one to sleep".  We wish you sweet dreams.
