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.
