Antique Ladies Knitted Bonnet with Tie - ca 1910
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
Here is a wonderful knitted bonnet that ties under the chin from about 1910. It is made of a cream colored wool and has four silk buttons at the chin area. The bottom button does have a loop to button it together. The other two are simply decorative.
It measures 12 1/2 inches in length not including the ties and 9 1/2 inches across the width so would be 19 inches if laid out flat.
Condition is quite good there are about a dozen areas on the tie mainly to the left side that have some moth nibbles.
This was acquired from an old General Store so was never used.
A lovely winter bonnet, I can see it being worn to go ice skating or tobagganing.
