This is a really beautiful bonnet, made originally for a baby and dating from the mid 18thC.
The bonnet is cream silk which has been beautifully embroidered with gold metallic thread, silk thread and wonderful coloured sequins and metallic leaves and flowers.
The bonnet is lined with a fabulous early printed cotton.
I have shown this gorgeous bonnet on my large english wooden doll Eliza.
She is 27 inches tall, the bonnet is a tight fit on her but looks wonderful and is exactly what a doll like this would have worn.
