B993 - SOLD
This is the most exquisite antique French baby's bonnet which could now perhaps be used for a doll.
It is beautifully made in the most divine shell pink silk. The silk has been meticulously hand ruched in fabulous detail. What sets this bonnet apart from others however, is the gorgeous, softly curling feather trim which would frame a baby's face to perfection.
The bonnet has two silk ribbons. On the left hand side where the ribbon joins the bonnet are 4 tiny ribbon roses. On the other side is a larger ribbon rose. At the front of the bonnet are further tiny ribbon roses and at the back is a little pink bow.
The bonnet is made in extraordinary detail and must have been made for a much loved baby. The pink silk and feathers are in good antique condition. There is some fatigue to the silk lining (please see photos) and the ribbons were possibly once longer.
The bonnet is very difficult to measure so we have included a photo with a tape measure to give a sense of scale.
A truly beautiful and unique bonnet to add to a collection or to dress a doll and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
