Quilted Winter Bonnet

Quilted Winter Bonnet
C.1880s black silk satin lady's winter bonnet.
The inside is quilted and lined in pink silk satin (now shattering), however the original grosgrain ribbon ties still remain. This bonnet would have been worn by a fashionable lady during the cold weather instead of wearing woolens like lower classed women would have worn.
(Formerly L. Hidic. Can now be seen at the Life in a Lens Museum in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire)
