1860's Drawn Spoon Bonnet in Cream Silk

This once-lovely bonnet has seen better days but it's disintegration allows us to study it's construction more closely. A wreath of hand-made flowers decorates the interior of the brim. The crown features a headliner of open-weave cotton. Most of the flowers appear to be sweetpeas made of painted cotton. The dark pink flower on the lower right side of the wreath is made of crepe paper, as is the yellow-brown calyx at its base.
