Superb All original Antique Bonnet or Hat - also called Capote or Calash Bonnet -from early 19th century, 1850’s (possibly earlier).
It would fit for a huge doll, it’s a very broad Bonnet. Modeled by french Bebe size 13. Please check the measurements on your doll head.
Beautifully made in a fine white lawn batiste with drawstring round crown front and a frill that continues around the back ( bavolet).
Meticulously ornate with corded, frilled and ruched motifs. The frills edged with scallop eyelet embroidery. Long batiste ties.
The Bonnet measures 16” (40 cm) through the brim (at the front) and 11” (28 cm) around the neckline.
Very good Condition. Only one tiny hole due to age. Great addition to the item collector. Absolutely Beautiful...Rare Find!
