This is an extremely charming piece that will work well on a variety of early dolls. The fabric is flannel and the ties and bow on top of the bonnet are made from wool yarn. Notice that 3 different fabrics were used in the construction of this bonnet. I always appreciate an early seamstress with not only sewing skills but with an artistic eye. Bonnet measures 8 inches around and is 3 1/4 front to back excluding ruffle. Top to bottom is 4 inches. I would date this to 1880 or a bit earlier. This is a bonnet of whimsy and good construction that will give your doll just the right look. Please feel free to request photos or ask questions. Do take a look at my other early items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
