Dating from the 1850's or Civil War era, a head dress piece for indoor wearing. Made on a wire frame, the head piece is fashioned of black tulle, Chantilly lace and black velvet ribbons. The head piece is small, measuring 8" long x 7" wide, sitting just at the crown of the head. The Chantilly lace is in a floral pattern with pointed scallop edge.
The condition appears to be very nice. Although there is a possibly I may have missed a small hole, I don't believe so.
A very nice find coming from a local estate.
