In the 1850s the popular shape of the bonnet changed.  The connical part became shorter and if flared slightly away from the face.


The green bonnet is made in pure silk taffeta with lilac silk decoration.

This bonnet is in stock and is an average size; the lining adjusts to accommodate the amount of hair you need to tuck inside!  Further pictures can be sent to you on request.


The negative version of the bonnet in lilac with green trim has already been sold, as has the mourning version in black.  A period appropriate veil can be provided if required.  Veils were not only used for weddings and funerals, but were also used to keep the sun off the delicate skin of the wearer.


If you would like it in a different colour, with alternative decoration or in another size, one can be made to your specific requirements.  Use the Contact Us in order to discuss your requirements.
