Found in a small antique, brass studded century trunk. The collection held several doll dresses, ensembles and hats; almost all were fashioned mid-19th century style with a few from the early part of the 20th, and made from fabrics of the same period (photo of the collection is below so you can see what it looked like). Probably made for a French Jumeau or Kestner fashion doll and circa 1880-1900.
This adorable hat is buff color velvet and was trimmed with antique white gros grain ribbon. Brim and outer edge of hat reinforced with wire, silk and net lining. Measures around band at 12 in. circumference; ribbon tails at 7 in. Lining split, bit of soiling on outer edges of hat, ribbon has a few holes.
