Here is a treasure from the Herr estate of Lancaster Co., Pa. and a bit of history: The Herr's lived in a small town in Lancaster Co. and the father was a Doctor, the mother a school teacher and the daughter was a musician and taught music later in life. The daughter Anna Mary was born in 1915 and many of the pieces of clothing I have listed like this bonnet and other textiles belonged to her. Her mother made it a priority to mark items with slips of paper to identify their origins and thus future generations would benefit. I knew the daughter and know that she was related to several exceptional seamstresses. This first bonnet was her summer bonnet from the year she was born and is elaborately decorated with white on white stitching. When lying flat, it is about 6" x 5" and has long ties with lovely ends. There are a few holes in the ties as shown but the cap itself is beautiful. Please forgive any age marks as these have been in storage for a great many years.
