Morning cap


Not on view

This elegant and detailed morning cap with refined details would have been worn primarily at home in the early part of the day as an informal head covering, prior to donning the more formal structured bonnets required for the afternoon or evening. It follows the same silhouette as the period's fashionable hats and bonnets constructed of more rigid materials such as straw.
