Victorian Solitary Confinement Cell Pillow, Solid Oak and Profusely Carved with Inmates Names
Salvaged from a Solitary Confinement Prison Cell, this rather uncomfortable and gruesome looking solid block of Oak, was used as the pillow in one of a prisons cells, as a further method of punishment for the ill-behaviour of its inmates.
The usable section of the pillow, where the inmate would have lay, is carved profusely wth names of its users, such as 'Caddy', 'Steve Hill', 'Hilly 4/9/19' etc, with bevelled edged for 'comfort'
The edges which would have been fitted to the wall are square cut and have holes where the block would have been attached to its fixtures.
A truly remarkable item, with a huge amount of character.
