The great size and color of this early country bonnet was made to really protect the sun from the face, neck and shoulders. It is the best butterscotch color. It is hand sewn and has the removeable cardboard stiffeners that can be removed for washing or just removeable so it can hang on a peg rack. The fabric is week at the fold at the very top of the bonnet where the fabric folds over the cardboard stiffen. It could easily be stabilized. and has a hole in the crown, see picture. It is 27" top to bottom and is 12" front to back. It has a beautiful hand made ruffle all around the the bonnet both front and back. This is really a magnificent early great color and construction bonnet.
