Vintage 1930s Embroidered Silk Bonnet Floral Embroidery Hat
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1930s era silk bonnet with fur trim. This silk bonnet was sold at Holt Renfrew in Montreal and is finely embroidered over its entire exterior with tiny flowers in blue, silver grey and green silk against a champagne gold toned silk background. The interior is quilted in grey silk taffeta. It is trimmed at the front edge with a very soft fur, possibly otter, but I’m not sure. It ties with two matching embroidered straps at the bottom front. It should fit a range of medium sizes and is in very good condition with no wear, tear, odour, staining - there is some slight soiling or discolouration to the lining at the bottom opening that I haven’t tried to address (see photo). This is a quality silk bonnet acquired from a wealthy Montreal estate - I can picture a lady during the 1930s wearing this silk bonnet to go out skating or on a sleigh ride. very pretty!
