How precious and charming the baby that wore this bonnet must have looked. More than likely made by a loving mother or grandmother.

This delight is from the late Edwardian - 1920's era. It is handmade of silk decorated with rows of braid & ribbon rosettes. The pointed brim is wired on the edge so it will stand up in peaks around the baby's head. Big silk satin ribbon bows decorate each side of the bonnet.
