Dating from the later teens, 1920's, a baby bonnet in hand crochet filet lace. A lovely border of filet lace frames the baby's face. Irish crochet stitch joins the border filet to the crown. The motif of the crown is a rose flower fillet. All the crochet is worked in an ivory thread. Bonnet is lined in a pink silk, then attached to the fillet at the side of the chin area. Large pink satin bows ties complete this beautiful bonnet. It appears it has never been worn, although the ties have been tied. Perhaps just in storing.
Measurement: 14" around the face area from side to side. 8" along the nape of the neck from side to side. Would fit a baby about 2-3 months old
Lovely for vintage gift giving, Christening or photography.
