Antique Edwardian FRENCH Baby Bonnet/Baby Cap - Silk, Lace and French Ribbonwork Trim!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: From the Edwardian era, from France (and in my personal collection for a long, long time), here's a baby bonnet - doll bonnet of silk (inside lining), organza, lace and ribbonwork trim. The bonnet has a patina of age, slight browning, and the ribbon work trim has been cut in small sections to decorate the top edge of the bonnet. Floral coloring is baby pink and baby blue with green rococo sides.
CONDITION: The outside is fine - the inside does have shattered silk in some places. There are no ties.
SIZE: Width at the back gusset is 4-1/2"; height from bottom of back to top measures abotu 5".
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely adorable and I'm sorry I didn't have a mannequin head to take a better photo! Would work for a doll or a mannequin or, if the interior is redone, for a baby!
