18th century Child's Cap
From the seller:
this original antique french silk brocade cap from the 18th century is in good condition and still has its original gilt lace edging.
The soft pink roses and green foliage are in a perfect harmony with the light golden brown ground. Lined inside with hand woven linnen
toile it is completely handstitched.
It is a small size, without breaks or major damage just some of the green silk thread has vanished by age on one side.
My guess is 1760's but it's hard to tell. These are quite common and were worn by children. Take a look at this one at vintage textile or this pink one.
