This example of an early Victorian High Brimmed Bonnet, circa 1850, was a fairly common everday hat style, and depending on a womans' place in society, the fabrications and trimmings could be very ornate and elegant, or very simple. We see it here in a luxurious tapestry velvet, and embroidered silk, with hand crocheted lace trim, feathers, embroidered ribbon ties, and a cloissone butterfly stick pin. A very well heeled lady might have worn this hat to do her afternoon shopping around town, or to meet a close friend for tea.
With 20 years of theater costuming behind me, it is such a joy to be able to bring my period reproduction hats to my ETSY shop, for the serious collector! Each hat is painstakingly researched for authenticity, and fabrications and trims are as close to what would have been used as possble. Whenever possible, period trimmings, and antique lace are used. All of my hats are hand made, including the hand formed buckrham frames. This prototype is offered as a custom order, and fabrications will be duplicated as closely as possbile, depending on materials availability. That said, please be aware that colors, textures, and trimmings can vary a bit. Your head measurements will be all important, so we can convo about that. Turn around time can also vary depending on the time of year the order is placed. Generally, a 90 day turn around time is necessary, but it could be longer or shorter. Again, we will need to convo about this. None of my hats are ever rushed.
