Bonnet
Early 19th c.

A rare item. This baby bonnet came from Hoorn, a former Dutch East India Company town in North Holland which lies on the IJsselmeer, the former inner sea of the Netherlands, to the north of Amsterdam. It is likely to have been produced by the company Vlisco in Helmond who produced wax printed fabrics for the African and Indonesian markets.
