Mid 1860's Bonnet

From the seller:


Fragile ladies bonnet dating 1860's. Wonderful array of decorative straw work, silk lining , silk neck curtain with silk ties. As found with breaks to edge and in scattered places interior/exterior, sold as found with no reserve. For study, prototype or display only.


Measures 9" front to back and stands approx. 10" high.

From Me:

This is probably just the tail end of the American Civil War about 1864-1866.
