1906 "Grace" is fashioned using the same pattern as "La Violette." The wired black straw body is draped with black
silk gauze and decorated with vintage satin striped silk bows,
handmade silk roses and a vintage Edwardian compound ostrich
plume. The underbrim is faced with vintage cotton lace.
Grace is suitable for the society matron and cooler weather and
can be worn a little farther forward, if desired. The
roses are pinned in place and can be easily changed for a more
somber occasion. One vintage glass button hat pin is
included with this elegant hat. Additional hat pins can be
found in the accessories section of the Mercantile, click here..

style demi bonnet based on an original in my collection,
suitable for reconstruction period impressions c.1865-68.

with a double layer of gathered and puffed silk tulle. A narrow
round elastic attached at the tips of the brim runs under the
chignon to help keep the bonnet in place. As shown, $155. Please
