We do have royalty in the U.S. -- the Prince of Tides, the King of Anything, and the Queen of Crabs. Here on our little Pacific Northwest island where approximately 99.9% of the populace love Dungeness crab, the commoners do not agree on the true identity of the rightful monarch. However, there certainly are a gaggle of pretenders to the throne. I think at least half of the women on this island claim title to the crown, based on their legendary success in the crabbing fields and the kitchen. Oh, the stories!

This hand-painted 15”x17” pillow will settle the matter once and for all – looks great on deck furniture, office chair, or hammock, even a seagoing vessel. The reverse features an envelope overlap closure for removal of the insert for laundering. Cover may be spot cleaned, hosed off, or gently machine-washed and air dried.

Goes nicely with the “King” version of the same design, for the royal couple in your circle. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted right next to the crabbing fields from whence we draw our daily seafood. This sample was produced in the color of a beachcombed crab carapace, but other colors available on request.

Dinner is served – long live the Queen!
