C1800 Antique Child Infant Brown Silk Bonnet Quilted Hand Stitched

This is a C1800 Antique Child Infant Brown Silk Bonnet that is Quilted and all Hand Stitched. This bonnet came out of a collection where it has been. The bonnet dates to about the first half of the 19th century C1800-1850 or prior i believe. The brown silk is soft and supple and is not shattering because they did not weight the silk at that time. Later in the Victorian period, silk was weighted and the chemicals that they used helped to disintegrate the fabric. This silk is not weighted so it is still nice and beautiful. The color comes from natural dyes that they used at that time and may have been butternuts. There is slight color variation in the natural dye color now, and there is a narrow white stripe to the design.. The bonnet has piping around the crown and around the brim, and there are a couple of pin point size holes but you have to really look to find them. The fall is lined in a camel color polished cotton. This bonnet was made for a young child and is SMALL measuring (folded in half like the photos) 8 1/2" from the top to the bottom edge of the fall, and 8" across. The brown silk color is DARKER in real life. Please ask questions if I have not included something in the description that is important for you to know.
