Really stunning Victorian bonnet, from an old estate with many fine linens that I am currently listing. The bonnet is PRISTINE, it has been stored carefully and has virtually no damage, very rare to find one in this good a condition. Classic soft shape, with black velvet body a bobbin lace border and and a ruby silk grosgrain lining. The bonnet would fit a small to medium head, it perches somewhat, so it is relatively flexible but will not go to a large. The size round the face measures 16", and it is approx 6 1/2" front to back. Perfect for reenactment, for display, or as a stunning antique accessory.
