Sweet plain linen baby bonnet completely hand stitched with two ruffles at the front and one at the back. There are five rows of cords to gather it at the front and two at the back with ties to gather under the chin. It would be perfect to match with an antique Christening gown, and is suitable for a collection.


Condition is good - there are a few tiny holes in the fine linen, and a couple of small tears in the back ruffle. These could be easily repaired with a couple of stitches.


Early to mid 19th century.


Antique white / pale ivory in colour.


Measures approx. 37cm (14.5") from side to side over head and 33cm (13") from side to side around back of neck.
