This is a wonderful and rare early hat.
this has clearly been made for a doll as woud be too small and not the right style for a child.
This lovely hat is beautifully made from different styles of metallic gold lace and is wired around the brim.
The style is exactly right for late18thC, I have shown this on my large English wooden (she is 27 inches tall ).
Often these were worn over the coiff bonnet .
Condition is excellent for age.
