Fine linen baby's bonnet with a circular section and two thin panels of Hollie Point; the roundel with a stylized vase of flowers, the back section and the long front section with similar elongated vase of flowers, flanked by two rows of loose buttonhole stitching, and edged with a double lace frill of Mechlin or Bucks Point bobbin lace. The centre of the bonnet has a row of cording to be pulled up in the top centre of the bonnet, and there is another fine cord round the edge.


The long front panel of Hollie Point is unusual and in very good condition. The circle has damage at the bottom and the back panel has damage at the lower section. The double row of lace has many holes, but is original. The back area of the bonnet has some little tears and holes.


Dates from the early 18th century.


White in colour.
