Frilly Lace Cap

From the seller:

An extremely pretty 19th century ladies muslin and lace bonnet with original pink ribbon threaded through with a bow each side.

Lots of frills and pleating with various laces. The colour is cream. I can see no evidence that there were ever any ties.

Condition: Very good.

Measurement: 9" from brim edge to crown. This is definately a ladies bonnet, so too large for use on a doll.

From Me:

I think this is late Victorian if not an early Edwardian. Very feminine! This, of course, was only worn at night.
