Description

The “stove pipe” bonnet was extremely popular throughout the Regency Era. Numerous fashion plates include variations of this tall crown, wide poke-style brim bonnet. Visit my Pinterest site for extant examples as well as hundreds of fashion plates: www.pinterest.com/sharonlathan62

The base construction is heavy stabilizer and buckram enforced with millinery wire and covered with cotton mull. As seen in the photos above, the outer surfaces are covered with a deep, chocolate-brown satin.

The brim is accented with a beautiful gold brocade in a leaf design trimmed with red and gold braid and dangling tassels. Gold silk fabric encompasses the crown base and forms the wide chin ties. A lovely peacock feather and jeweled pin adorn the front of the crown.

The interior is fully lined in a combination of the brown satin and gold silk, with pretty ecru lace encircling the crown/brim juncture.

The circumference of the inner crown measures 22”. The crown is 5” high and the brim 5” at its widest in front.
