SILK VICTORIAN DOLLS BONNET
A stunning FRENCH SILK VICTORIAN
ANTIQUE DOLLS BONNET, with exquisite detail to the rear.
I have had many Dolls Bonnets over the years, but this is “up there”
with the best. It is fabric lined and
cream silk to the outside, with loads of lace and ribbon trimming.
Do take a look at the photos I have added – this is where you will
see the details and the skill that would have gone into making this bonnet.
It is in amazing condition with very little age discolouration.
It is constructed of a heavier silk than one would normally see in
silk bonnets of this period, and I can see no problems with the silk.
I feel it has been tucked away for many years, away from light.
My wax who is modelling, has a head circumference of about 15 inches.
