Every now and then I am fortunate enough to find something that is beautiful and in excellent condition. This little bonnet definitely fits both criteria. Notice the delicate woven straw and the different intricacies that are created with it in almost each row. The back and the interior maintain, in lovely condition, the original silk. It is also trimmed with a deep green velvet that ties into the greens that dot the old silk . I believe that this bonnet dates before 1880. The hat is shown on a 16 inch and 13 inch fashion so you can see how well it looks on either size doll. From one tie over the top to the other is about 7inches around. It is 2 3/4 inches from front to back. This is just the perfect accessory for a prized china or French fashion doll. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at my other early doll items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
