1820's Sheer Cap

From the seller:

The high back puffed crown dates this gossamer fine sheer cotton cap dates it to the early 19th century when women wore their hair very high in the back. The narrow black braid trim and black ribbon ties indicate it was most likely worn by a widow at least in the later stages of mourning. The body of the cap is reinforced inside around the edges with layers of cotton netting, giving a firmer edge to attach the minutely gathered self-fabric ruffle.

From Me:

1820's! I think they are ugly as can be but then I think...wait...I could finally have a nice fitted cap and fit all my hair! ;-)
