1830's Mourning Cap Side View

This original silk crepe mourning cap dates from the 1830's to early 1840's. It resembles caps for which patterns are given in The Workwomans Guide, published in 1838. There is a poufed area at the top of the back section to accommodate the tall topknot hairdos of the era.
