For a newborn baby, probably a Christening bonnet. German?
Cream cotton and bright turquoise beads with an open work lacy design, the inner brim with trailing flowerheads, gathered brim and narrow tape lace ties threaded through the brim of the bonnet.
Mint. Probably never worn.
Beadwork. Caroline Crabtree and Pam Stallebrass
My thanks to Angela Thompson for correcting that the bonnet was not crochet!
Price: £110 | $140 | €120
