Belle is a lovely Mid-Victorian style spoon bonnet. While earlier bonnets of the 19th Century had lower brims, by mid-century Spoon Bonnets, which featured increasingly high brims and more elaborate trimmings, became the vogue. This high crowned spoon bonnet is made of tightly braided straw and features pointed edges on the brim, to allow for at "curtain" (bavolet) in the back to protect the neck from sun.

Perfect for Civil War gatherings and reenactments, this bonnet will arrive plain, with no decoration. The additional images show period trimming ideas as well as my own interpretation.

Belle is also available as a trimmed straw bonnet in a variety of colors.
