A little girl’s cotton bonnet

In our previous blog entry, we saw a doll dressed in a cotton day dress from about 1910, sitting in our high chair. Although there would have been no need to wear a bonnet for a mealtime in the house, we decided to top off our little girl’s outfit to give our visitors a chance to see one of our little bonnets. This one dates from 1910 or just after, so is about right to go with the dress and the time when Flo Burbidge was a toddler in this very high chair and house.

The bonnet has frills at the front and bands of broderie anglaise.

At the back the material is gathered in, with a little bow.

So, if you visit the museum kitchen this year, you will see this little girl, waiting for her meal.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
