1906 "Grace" is fashioned using the same pattern as "La Violette."  The wired black straw body is draped with black silk gauze and decorated with vintage satin striped silk bows, handmade silk roses and a vintage Edwardian compound ostrich plume.  The underbrim is faced with vintage cotton lace.  Grace is suitable for the society matron and cooler weather and can be worn a little farther forward, if desired.  The roses are pinned in place and can be easily changed for a more somber occasion.  One vintage glass button hat pin is included with this elegant hat.  Additional hat pins can be found in the accessories section of the Mercantile, click here..

1870's Goldye", a deep green silk velvet fanchon-style hat, is based on an original. The base is blocked and wired buckram. It features self-fabric and vintage netting trim.  The crown is lined with black cotton. The burgundy bonnet below shows the same shape worn farther back on the head.( see 1870's page)  Ribbon ties may be added.  How to wear it is your choice. $90.

"Isabella" is a post-war fanchon style demi bonnet based on an original in my collection, suitable for reconstruction period impressions c.1865-68.  The wire and net form is covered in light gold silk taffeta with a silk ribbon rosette gracing the back of the crown.  The ties are self-fabric edged with vintage lace and are pinned together behind the composed bow.  The under-brim is filled with a double layer of gathered and puffed silk tulle. A narrow round elastic attached at the tips of the brim runs under the chignon to help keep the bonnet in place. As shown, $155. Please click photo for additional images. AVAILABLE NOW.  You may also order this bonnet in your choice of color, based on availability.
