Inspired by the life and work of the author of "Wuthering Heights," Emily Bronte, this bonnet features the quintessential "scoop" or "coal scuttle" shape of the period, that, when tied under the chin, frames  the face in a horsehoe.  All over shirring makes the most of this remarkable shot silk that is a mix of rust and steel blue that makes it appear dusky purple in some light, and a moody, midnight blue in others. Trimmed with black ribbons and a spray of wildflowers reminiscent of the windswept moors! This hat is easy fitting, with plenty of room for hairpieces or a lacy cap (made by Flying Heart Millinery, worn once, purchased for $70.00) Included FREE with purchase of the bonnet, TODAY ONLY!
