Item details

This is a reproduction mid 1800's style bonnet. Our design is a hybrid between a poke bonnet and a spoon bonnet.

SMALL SIZE: This smaller style bonnet sits toward the back of the wearer's head and allows some hair to show at the front of the bonnet. While designed to be a "bun sitter" bonnet for adults, this style also works as a great child sized bonnet. See photos!

It is important to note, that these bonnets are regency inspired, so the dome of the bonnet does not sit down over the head, but is smaller, and sits toward the back of the hair/bun. The deep bell will cover most of the head, but does allow some hair to peak out near the temples. :)

***Please review sizes below. This item is not eligible for return.

One size fits most - Made of 100% straw.

It is useful for recreating the 1810's to 1860's time period.

Rough Measurements: (Size varies from piece to piece.)
-9.5" Diameter (Across widest part of bonnet brim.)
- 5" Diameter (Across opening of the "dome" of the hat, where your bun goes.)
- 11" Longest height (From fold to top of brim.)

-11.5" Diameter (Across widest part of bonnet brim.)
- 6" Diameter (Across opening of the "dome" of the hat.)
- 14" Longest height (From fold to top of brim.)

This bonnet comes undecorated ready to add your own favorite ribbons and flowers. If you would prefer your bonnet professionally decorated for an extra cost, please contact me for information.
This piece will reach you complete finished edges, ready for your embellishments.

Apply this base to a comb or headband, or add bobby pin loops or a comb backing to your piece. This base is perfect for creating your own custom hat. It is lightweight and contoured for comfortable wear.

CUSTOM COLORS: Do you need a custom color? Contact me to place an order for a dyed piece. Allow additional time for colored pieces. :)


***For lower shipping costs, consider adding netting to your order, or additional hat bases. Once I have a box headed your way, it's a lot more economical to add additional pieces! Please convo me if the shipping isn't discounting appropriately. :)
