  "Ursula" is a very shallow-crowned straw hat with a narrow brim, based on an original in my collection.  She dates from approximately 1868-72. The brim is wired and faced with velvet.  The same velvet is used for the band and loops at the front of the brim.  The additional decoration is 2" wide vintage rayon ribbon.   The crown is lined with cotton.  A narrow round elastic band helps to keep this diminutive hat in place.  Because the shape is a long oval, the hair needs to be worn somewhat high in the back to support the back of the hat. This model has been dyed.  In natural straw, $145.  Add $7 to dye. Please click on photo for additional images.  Sold   "Sadie" is a full mourning bonnet in the bebe' style, based on an original in my collection.  She has a wired and blocked buckram base, covered in silk and overlaid with crape.  The decorations consist of folds of crape and shirred grosgrain ribbon, as on the original.  This shape is appropriate for the 1870's into the early to mid 80's.  $155. Sold. Please click on photo for additional images.
