This is such a lovely early bonnet for your favorite doll. I would date this to 1870s-80s. It has a sweet calico pattern and even the ties are made from another early fabric. One of the ties is very short; I assume that it tore apart at some point over the years. What I love about this bonnet is its many layers of ruffles. There are ruffles around the face, further back on top and the entire bottom is ruffled. Notice that the top part is quilted. This has been stitched on a treadle machine. It measures 6 1/2 inches around the face. I find no tears or holes. 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.
