Sale 38 Lot 409

A Civil War era mourning bonnet, made of silk georgette, and adorned with pleats the back. The bonnet once featured a mesh veil, which is now, understandably, quite deteriorated. It has a wire structure within that gives shape to the visor portion of the bonnet, and retains the original silk ribbon for tying round the face. Overall good condition considering age and the likelihood that it was worn for an extended period of time.
Estimate $ 200-300
