Early 19th Century Whitework Womans Cap Coif Pulled Work Circa 1800

Woman’s embroidered muslin cap/ coif with all in one (not separately inserted) gathered crown of the most ornate floral arrangement. Having incorporated chin pendants /lappets. This early morning cap has an ethereal simplicity being free from the fussiness and frills that became fashionable in the later 1820's and 30's. This cap would have been worn on its own or under a bonnet. Embroidered with a pattern of trailing strawberries and double leaf sprigs. The strawberry hulls having fillings of pulled work, so too the flower centers at the crown. There is an inner border running around the outer edge that is SOOO neat and fine. The patience and skill needed to make such a beautiful cap is to be admired. This cap screams late 18th or early 19th century quality and skill with a needle.

Size: 11" (27 cm) from peaked front to tip of chin pendant.8" (20 cm) when laid flat from cheek to center of crown.

Condition. One area of damage near the right ear. Otherwise in very good clean and sound condition considering its vast age. Very minor age spots.

This is a fantastic addition to your early cap collection, you will NOT be disappointed.
