#2865 - c. 1830's Dark Brown Silk Bonnet! Rare, Excellent Condition! Absolutely amazing. I don't remember ever seeing a hat of this quality, museum condition from this era. Most of the early bonnets of this size are misshapen from years of improper storage. But this one (other than the minor wear at the front edges and surface cracks on the inside... glorious! You have to remember just how old this is! The original owner might have worn flowers surrounding her face. If you are a collector, you will definitely want this bonnet in your collection.
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
