Factory original antique baby Poke bonnet. Hard to describe so look at the photos for a better description. It is a larger bonnet and would fit a larger doll. I do not know what size doll this will fit so read measurements below. This is a GORGEOUS bonnet with some unusual trim. Made of a stiff organdy in a nice creamy ivory color. The photos are darker or lighter than in reality. The bonnet is a very pretty ivory color. I am sure if it was white at one time but it has aged to a lovely ivory color over the years. The front is all cotton lace with tabs of light dusty rose ribbon sandwiched between lace. Organdy ruffle trimmed with cotton lace along the very front edge. Original decorative pink satin ribbon on the center. There are three layers of ribbons on either side of a pink satin rosette. Puffy organdy fabric cap that stand tall on the back. Ruffled organdy sun protector along the back neckline trimmed with cotton lace. There is a removable lace trimmed sash on the backside that buttons to the bonnet. Drawstring on the inside back neck for size adjustment. Two organdy chin ties. This is a very nice bonnet. Adorable for antique bisque baby dolls or child doll. Please read condition and measurements below and please look at all of the photos as they are part of the description.
CONDITION: Excellent condition. A few pulls to the organdy fabric at the lace seams causing some holes as shown in the above photos. A few other minor pulls/holes. These may be easy mends. No major holes to the bonnet and very few on the lace. It is in very nice condition. Some light stains and yellowing consistent with age. Chin ties are very nice. I have not laundered this so the fabric is still very crisp. No odor. My home is smoke-free. While have made every attempt to disclose condition as accurately as possible I encourage you to look at all of the photos so that you can form your own opinion of condition.
