Exquisite Victorian child's bonnet









This was one of the first things I sold from my cabinet in a Lewes antiques emporium, an exquisite silk Victorian child's bonnet in almost immaculate condition. Embroidered skillfully all over, with delicate silk ribbons & lining, it is indeed a thing of real beauty. I have never seen one in such good condition before, and probably never will.
