Revolutionary pillow with historical image celebrating July 4, 1776

The design, taken from historic wallpaper, depicts a Patriot handing a dejected Britannia a document with "4 July 1776" on the cover. He's turned his back on Britain and is focused on the American Indian, who represents his new home of America.  Under his foot is a banner with the words "British Laws" on it.

I saw this wallpaper a few years ago and thought it was fabulous. We finally found the right way to show it off: As a high quality zippered pillow case (with pillow).

The image appears on both sides of this satin pillow. Our brand ("The History List") is printed on the bottom of one side and not visible when the pillow is upright. (I laid it down to take that picture. It's upright in the other two photos. You can't see the label, and of course, you can't see it on the other side.)

I look forward to hearing what you think about this unique pillow.

Note that these are made as ordered. The expected ship date is approximately three weeks after purchase.

Shipping

Timing

We try to ship orders within three business days of receiving them. This applies to in-stock items. Framed items or items requiring personalization may take up to two weeks longer.

We close for a week over Independence Day and Christmas. A notice will appear at the top of every page of the site in advance of this closure.

We ship most orders via USPS, so if the post office is closed, we won't be shipping orders that day.

If you need to receive your order by a certain date, such as to give as a gift or have for a trip, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, especially if you are use USPS shipping. 

If you're looking for reliable, on-time deliveries, we strongly suggest upgrading to "UPS 3 Business Day Select Shipping."

Additional notes:

  • When fulfillment takes longer, such as around the Christmas holidays, we'll put up an announcement in the site and will list recommended shipping deadlines below.
  • If an item is out of stock, we will contact you.
  • If one of your items is an advance order, that will be noted on the product page along with an estimate of when it will ship. If that estimated date changes, the product page will be updated.

          A Touch of Patriotic Elegance

          The pillow came just as advertised and is of top quality. I put it under my Paul Revere’s Ride oil painting above the backrest of my couch. It is probably too nice to put my head on for a Minute Man nap 😴 but it would feel so good!
