Quilted Woman's Cap
1675-1700

Wonderful shape.

Description

The cap front section with a wide border 2 in; 5 cm quilted with a design starting centre front and changing to the outer corners, with large stylised flowers, within the border a flowerhead at the corners with simple quilting beyond, the back crown with very simple quilting, with large linen corded loops to the base and  simple narrow tape for gathering at the neck, the crown very gently gathered into the front section.

Front brim point to point 25 in; 64 cm. 

Condition

So nice having the original loops and tapes at the back. There are two very small rust marks. The cap appears to have very very very slight yellowing here and there. I feel sure a conservator could remove this.

Comments

The photo of two caps is from An Moonan's book   A history of Dutch Quilts. Van Gruting Publishers 2010   page 38 p 38,39 she refers to three ladies' caps made in the Netherlands around 1675-1700 which are in the Netherlands Open Air Museum.
