Lot Description: An 18th Century European Child's Cap worked in gold threads, and silver coiled thread, edged with silver braid, finished with a narrow edge of bobbin lace to the neck. The cap is worked in three sections. The central panel is worked on cream silk, with one large and intricate floral spray, the flower head located at the upper part of the cap, with long stems worked towards the rear. Tiny wheat ears and gold sequins fill all remaining space. To each side, worked on the cream silk, are two similar flower heads, surrounded by sequins and gold threads as before. The cap is lined with a striped woven silk in mid blue and cream, and handstitched. Remnants of a cream silk ribbon show the bonnet was tied at the neck. Condition Report: . In good order, no loss or splitting noted. Gold threads and sequins remain generally quite bright but the silver areas are rather dull. ARR: Categories: Fans
