It is a delight to offer these two wonderful bed bonnets from the late teens or roaring 20's era. Remember the song by Irving Berlin of Sisters, Sisters? I thought of that song when admiring the bonnets and thinking of the two sisters that owned them.
Both are hand made / hand stitched of printed silk ribbon. The prettiest floral ribbon in soft shades of pink on a cream background was chosen. Now, how much more girly could that be?
Each bonnet is embellished with ercu hand crochet in different patterns. Of course, so the sisters could tell who's was who's. Elastic at the back of the bonnet adjust the fit (believe it or not, the elastic still has stretch). Loops of pink satin bows adds the final touch of embellishment. Both bonnets have never been worn. More than likely given to the sisters as gifts, then stored away.
Condition: Remarkable. I only found two tiny round holes in the ribbon near one of the pink loopy bows. (See second to last photo). Unless I missed, I found nothing else.
The one bonnet measures 20" circumference around the outside edge. The other bonnet measures 19" around. Since the back is elastic, the size would enlarge a bit.
