This is a very pretty baptism bonnet from Brittany.
It is entirely adorned with small beads and sequins sewn on an off white velvet background with a star pattern.
The edge is embellished with lace and the interior lined with white satin.
The bonnet closes under the chin with two taffeta ribbons.
I think it dates from the 1930s.
This lovely bonnet is in good condition for its age,there are just two or three small beads lines which have to be sewn again.The satin lining shows some yellowed traces as well the inside lace and there is a small tear on one of the ribbon.Please,see photos.
This bonnet could fit a large doll.
Front 5,9’’ (15cm) from the top to the chin.
7,87’’ (20cm) total across the base.
4,3’’ (11cm) down from the front to the back.
4,8’’ (12cm) top from the front to the back.
Approximately 13,8’’ (35cm) for the ribbon length .
