The bonnet itself is in perfect condition with no tears or stains. The fabric is cotton and has a tiny rib to it.
Silk ribbon bows decorate the back and one side and the ties are of a wider version of the same silk (at least it feels like silk to me). The ties show some wear and are slightly stained at the bottom. The end edges could probably be trimmed up and stitched for a neater look.
It would be adorable on a small child or even a life sized baby doll.
Lying flat the depth is 5" and side to side it measures between 6 1/2" and 7"
I would estimate that it was made in the late 40's or early 50's
