An adorable hand made little girl's white cotton dimity sunbonnet. Bonnet dates about 1850's (perhaps 1840's) to 1860's.  A child's size about 2-3 years of age.

The bonnet features a deep brim with rows of exquisite cording.  It also is made with a long apron to protect the neck and shoulders from the rays of the sun.  A narrow gathered ruffle separates the brim from the rest of the bonnet.  Another narrow ruffle embellishes the brim at the face line. Chin ties, although one is partially missing.    

Measurement:    9"  at the neck line, from side to side.  14" along the face line, from one side to the other.    Length of the apron is 4-1/2" long. 

Condition:  For the age, nice.  A couple scattered holes on the back.  See photo.

Reminds me much of a Tasha Tudor style.   Something she would have worn, only in a larger size.
