Small Child Bonnet

Updated: Aug 26, 2022


This small child/baby bonnet is made of black straw with two black silk ribbons on both the left and right sides. The brim of the bonnet is decorated with artificial flowers and leaves. There is a label inside the hat with the date '1880' written on it. Considering how there is no curtain on the hat, as well as the brim being rather short, the date 1880 appears to be correct considering the style.


This hat is part of our extensive collection of Gilded Age hats found within the Rogers Mansion. It is on display for our 'High Style in the Gilded Age' exhibit at the Southampton History Museum.

That small child/baby bonnet made of black straw with silk ribbons and artificial flowers sounds fascinating! The date '1880' written on the label inside the hat adds a historical touch to it. I would love to visit the 'High Style in the Gilded Age' and time card calculator exhibit at the Southampton History Museum to see this hat and more from the Gilded Age collection.
