Rare to find all original antique bamboo " Bourrelet" cap with Velvet decoration .... perfect cap for a French BeBe but looks nice also for German dolls. Typical French firm-sides childs or larger doll walking cap ... is constructed of very narrow bands of sturdy baby bamboo held by in vertical rows of heavy cotton thread. The top is protected by a round bamboo cap and it is decorated with nice blue velvet at the border and crest and with a pretty bow ....with fine brooch .... at the side. Inside lined with stiff gauze and a small cotton ribbon to hold it under the doll chin. France circa 1880 ... in excellent condition Head circumference inside : circa 19" ( 48 cm )
It looks very pretty on a doll head , I dress one of my Jumeau dolls with it and as you can see ...it looks marvelous !!!!!!!!
Many thanks for your interest on my doll shop and please let me know if you have any question..
