Very demure, very Victorian - a collectible late Victorian black velvet bonnet. The main body of the bonnet is made of black velvet; fully lined in black satin. It has 2 long black silk ribbons meant to tie under the chin and is trimmed on either side with a ruched puff of black silk ribbon. The front of the bonnet is trimmed with a panel covered in paisley print silk - edged with a black silk moire ribbon ruffle. Size - 9in deep, 18in from side to side sround the top of the head. Condition - body is very good, as is the lining. The black moire ruffle is very good. The other black silk ribbons are a little tattered. The paisley fabric has some splitting. (The paisley is attached to a black velvet backing. I think that the piece could be removed & reversed - the backing is great, this would be a wonderful piece for restoration!
