A mourning bonnet was a necessity for every woman's wardrobe in the long years of the Napoleonic Wars. But while black was a staple of mourning, it was also every bit as fashionable for every day wear as it is today. In black silk taffeta trimmed with pinked self-fabric ruffles, narrow silk braid, and vintage dotted silk ribbon, this bonnet comes with a detachable black plume and a reproduction veil (rayon embroidered on nylon net) for maximum versatility. Silk ribbon ties. Cotton drawstring lining. One size for all.
