Pusher machine made Chantilly lace bonnet veil. The liner has been applied by hand. It has an attractive floral design at the hem and is dotted all over with small sprigs. It still has its original black silk ribbon for gathering, and its ID label from the Castle Howard Costume Collection. 

Condition is very good - there are a couple of tiny breaks in the net and the picot trim is coming away from the edge.  

Dates from the late 19th century.

Black in colour - the liner threads have faded to a dark brown colour.

Measures approx. 108cm x 39.5cm (42.5" x 15.5") at the widest points.

Price - £25.00
