Just brought this one back home from Paris. It came with a smaller but equally beautiful bonnet that I have up for sale in another listing
You will not find an equal rare and amazing doll bonnet soon again.
Antique and Original from the Golden Era of French doll making 1870-1890
Made of silk and lace. Patterned silk on the crown with lots of intricate pleating, plain silk ruffles with an overlay of lace around the face. The outer layer of silk has no melting and is in good condition with no damage or stains. Lining is in good condition too. There is some minor melting to the silk ruffle around the face, but only minor! Streamers are in poor condition but Original to the bonnet.
I have it shown on a Gaultier doll of 24" That is NOT included in this sale. It would be suitable for 24" to 26" dolls (Jumeau 11 or 12) It meassures 5.5" ear to ear on the inside.
