    Very Rare 1912 S110 "Bathing-Athletic-Dancing Girls" Silk Premium Pillow Top. Insanely rare and utterly beautiful is this S110 silk pillow top silky-satin premium adorned with "Bathing-Athletic-Dancing Girls" subjects from the T7-6 series. Number 8 in a series of 12, this boldly designed 23 x 23" stunner includes the following subjects: Rowing Girl, Fencing Girl, Golf Girl, Polo Girl, Basket Ball Girl, Horse Show Girl, Skating Girl and Yachting Girl. Individual silks were easily exchanged for coupons but a small mountain of coupons was necessary to obtain one of these amazing premiums explaining their extreme rarity now a century later. This must be one of the earliest depictions of the relatively new sport called basketball and an early golf collectible adding a sports collectors appeal. Each feminine illustration is the work of noted artist Hamilton King. Its condition is remarkable considering the delicate nature of the cloth and that it was intended to be used on a nightly basis, regardless how dainty the head of a lucky young lass who happened to have a mom who was a smoker. Light fold lines and a small area affecting a brief segment of the otherwise complete red outer border are all we have to note. A remarkable piece one may never see again.
