Child's Bonnet

From the seller:

Recently de-accessioned from a museum collection, with a 1975 accession numbered tag still attached. An original circa 1862 girl's ivory silk satin spoon bonnet with a very pretty ruched crown, trimmed in a chip straw and braided straw gimp, lined in a glazed buckram, and with a wired frame and buckram foundation. 5" deep and 6" across the face. In presentable as found condition, with scattered age flaws, some small surface holes and spots, wear to the edges, and some soiling to the lining from normal use. All is reflected in the reserve price for this Civil War era girl's spoon bonnet.

From Me:

Not as cute as the previous one but still rather lovely.
