Black and white mini-check silk taffeta soft crown bonnet with self fabric rosette.

The fabric was allowed to speak for itself on this bonnet as a self-fabric rosette was the only (apparent) decoration. The curtain was removed at some point.

Very tiny checks like this are one of the very, very few patterned fabrics used on mid-century bonnets. Small checks were mentioned as suitable for travel bonnets.
