This listiing is for a beautiful Regency Silk Bonnet dated 1795 - 1808 with a matching reticule purse. This would be ideal for Regency re-enactment, Jane Austen events, Regency themed weddings and costumed events.

The bonnet is made up in a stunning antique gold or tabacco coloured silk taffetta shot through with black. This fabric is accurate to those used throughout the regency era. Most bonnets were made of satin or sarcenet a silk like material similiar to that used here. Many of these fabrics have long since ceased to be manufactured so its a real treat to find a beautiful fabric of this quality in such a pretty shade.

The bonnet with its shaped crown narrowing at the centre fits close to the wearers face as was common is the earlier styles of bonnet. The brim is constructed of wired buckrum as seen in origional examples. The full gathered crown holds its shape beautifully due to the crispness of the fabric. The bonnet is fully lined in black cotton and is trimmed with black satin ribbons. All construction seams are sewn by machine giving you the durability of a modern item with all visible stitching inside and out being sewn entirely by hand making it ideal for historical re-enactors.

The bonnet also comes with a pretty little drawstring reticule with a five pointed hem, a popular style during the regency often seen in fashion plates and museum collections. This fastens with narrow black satin ties and is fully lined in black cotton to match the bonnet perfectly.

This bonnet would look wonderful with all your autumn/winter/fall regency wear and looks fantastic teamed with black, browns, olive greens and lighter earthy tones. The photos really do not do justice to this beautiful bonnet.

If you have any questions do feel free to convo me.

Your bonnet will be sent to you wrapped in tissue in a strong postal box suitable for storing your bonnet for future events.
