1917 Shaker Straw Bonnett Nmbr 5

The hood measures 8 1/2" long.Comes with it original store box,Bradners of Olean,Penna.The bonnett is small,probably a child's size.The sizes ranged from 1 to 10,with the small sizes fitted to a doll.This one has its original brown velvet ribbons and his in great original condition.As common with these thin straw bonnetts,splits in the straw occurred.As noted the final picture, the 2 splits were repaired with white archival cloth tape.The tape is only visible when the hat is placed upon its back.One could sew a lining over the tape strips if desired.I used to be able to find these about 10 years ago,but have not seen any for a while.I have it on top another item that I have for sale on this site,a pine cannon ball bed finial.No odors.The first picture is the most accurate color,with some shadowing from the window.

Price: $170 + $10 shipping
