This sale is for a lovely antique infant cap. The fabric is a fine muslin. The lace is made of a very fine thread (see penny for perspective).
From a larger collection. I am also listing another cap from the same time frame and family.
Came with a note indicating that it is made of India muslin and thread lace. Made by Madam Neville of Sutton Coldfield England. Dating no later than 1790. (a photo copy will be included)
Mounted onto one piece of blue cloth. It is delicate so I did not remove it.
There are two rows of lace around the face and one at the nape with a string for adjusting size. This ties at the forehead of the bonnet and another ties at the back.
Measures approx 6 3/4" across and 6 1/4" rom top to bottom. This includes the lace.
The front side is in very good condition especially considering its age. There is a tiny split/tear and a few small holes in the muslin. This condition includes only a partial viewing of the reverse side of each as there is a piece of paper basted on the inside.
Come to you as found - basted to cloth.
Has not been laundered.
I pack all my antique and vintage linens in archival quality unbuffered acid free tissue paper.
Please keep in mind that vintage and antique textiles are not new and have had a past life so there are likely some slight imperfections to be expected. I take pride in my vintage/antique linens. I treat them with great care and respect and do a very close inspection and will always disclose any major flaw.
Successful buyer to add flat $6 for insured Priority Mail. Will be packed in a box, folded in half keeping the bonnets flat.
